2.5 or 3.5 ?

Not the greatest picture but just curious how old you guys think this buck is. Pic is from late October and I am pretty confident he is still alive. Michigan deer.
Thanks.

Same deer? If so 2.5. That first deer looks longer. Second screams 2.5 to me.
I live to release an arrow and watch woods grow into chaos and then grow quite as a mouse in just seconds.

Looks like a 2.5. has some good potential.

2.5 in my opinion.

Possibly 1.5 with good genetics
Take your bow and a quiver full of arrows, and go out into the open country to hunt some wild game for me.
