I agree w/ you on his over all size, when he fully rutted out his body will look more impressive. His mass is what makes me lean towards 3.5, main beam and base thickness is generally more on bucks that age here.

You cannot judge age of deer on antler size or mass.

Correct, I didn't say it was definitely one age or the other. I said I was leaning to one based on the size of deer that are taken off our farm.
