3.5...The body isn't huge so it could be a 2.5 but that rack is something I've never seen on a 2.5 so I'm guessing 3.5.

I would guess 3 1/2. He doesnt seem to have a real big neck, and it looks like he's fairly "tight" in the back end. Now that is just my"guess" based on what I have read, and heard about "aging deer on the hoof"

Kind of hard to judge this one, Im gunna say 2.5 as his body looks very young. He'll be a bruiser in a couple years!

i'm going 2.5 as well. Could be 3.5 but id go 2.5 with how it's still a 6 and the body isn't quite as filled out yet, but i might wait and see what he looks like next year if u don't know if u wanna take him now.

I don't care how old he is, I'd shoot him in a heartbeat!
 
(But just for the record...I'll say 2.5 to 3.5, based on the body...AND assuming that he's an Illinois deer. If he lives where they have 250 pound yearlings, then I'd have to guess that he's a buck fawn! [:D] [;)] )
