2 1/2 or 3 1/2

I estimate him to be 2 1/2, what do you guys think? Its harder to tell in velvet. Hopefully I can get some pics once he is hard horned.

Mind you I don't know butkus about this per say but by looking at the body I would guess 2-1/2.

It just looks like a younger deer to me is all, not based on anything scientific or experience.

I would say at the very least, 31/2. Looks like you have good browse line on those trees. What state?

I'd agree with 2 & 1/2. He's got a lot of potential if he's allowed to keep growing. A good lookin' deer, no doubt.

He sure will be tough to pass. My goal is kill my first P&Y. I don't think he would quite get there.
