Id say you are right on with 3.5

3.5 has a big body  but not enough sag in the belly.

Not much mass on rack or much neck size, but he has a big body. I would say he is a good 3.5 year old.

Thought I'd make it a little easier for everyone to view.  I'd say he's a good 3.5 year old.

I'm going with the majority of people on this one.  I think he's a 3.5 year old, and I'm going to throw out there that he's low to mid 130's on his antlers.  One more year and he should accumulate some better mass maybe a little more height as well.  Probably would put him in the 140's.  He's hard to pass up though if he came walking past my stand.

It's kinda hard to say from the angle he's at. A three year old(from what I understand), will have a 'pronounced' brisket, a deep chest, and a 'tight' belly. A four year old(again, from what I've heard), will have a more 'straight line' through the belly, at five (and older) you'll start to see the 'sway back', and saggy belly. Now again, this is based on what I've read, and seen(on tv) from the "experts". Anyway you look at it, he's a great deer

The more I look at him, I gotta go four! He just seems a little to 'full' in the back end to be a three year old.

Rack is still a little thin (compared to most 3.5 I see). Back is straight. Legs don't look 6" long....

I'm going with 3.5... but I could be wrong. Da wife reminds me of that every day!
