Is this buck mature?

This year I’m really focusing on killing a mature buck. What would you estimate for this deer’s age?


I estimate that buck’s age to be four or older!  His chest clearly sags below where his leg meets his shoulder.  There’s lots of loose skin by his brisket.  His shoulders and hams are both very developed.  This buck would be on my wish list!
