The first buck has a nice rack but back does not not sway. The deer will fill out more next year. The second buck was mature, started to have a little sway in his back and is a big bodied for NY.

Based on region of country, body size (length), length of forehead to end of nose, and body. Buck #1 is yet to reach his prime, while Buck #2 is on the decline.

Buck 1 has a sagging belly, hind quarters appear much smaller than the chest/neck. Not much back sagging, no older than 4.5. Buck 2 appears younger, hind quarters are larger, chest larger than belly.

Buck 1’s belly is very saggy where as Buck 2 is more lean.

I Chose those ages because their legs still seem longer than what an older deer because most older deer’s legs look shorter but more body mass
Mark KAZMIERCZAZK

buck one's nose is short and Canadian bucks get real big as 4or5 year old's. the second buck has a long nose though he is a little thinner looks like an early, or preseason pic.
Paul Vice

Body on both deer suggest younger deer. Mass on buck #1 is decent, but not impressive. Not expecting much mass on buck #2 after velvet falls off. His movement pattern suggests a young buck.
Shaun

Buck1 is a young deer that would be getting toward showing more promise of bigger rack. Reasoning I’m saying 2.5 is no belly sag or drop in back at all. Buck2 to me appears to be older in the hips.

#1 Body looks mature but lacks the mass in antlers , so I say 3.5 because it’s Saskatchewan and I expect those deer to have a bigger body anyway. #2 looks to be your typical 3.5 year old

Buck #2 doesn't have the stocky body of a fully mature buck. Buck #1 nose isn't as stocky and thick as a fully mature buck.

Buck 1 has an obvious slanted back and prominent belly sag. Also, has some abnormal points indicative of an older deer. Buck 2 looks like a bit younger based on the night time vid
Jonathan Boehme

Buck #1 has a massive neck suggesting at least 4.5, and his hind quarters have filled out as well, likely 5.5. Buck #2 hasn’t swollen for the rut yet, but has a heavy body suggesting he is mature.
Blaine Sheppard

A huge body on deer #1 reminds me of other 6.5 year old bucks. Deer 2 is younger with a thin body and a clear “indented notch” where his neck meets the chest. This deer will be phenomenal.

Both bucks "seem" younger based on their appearance. Also to get a deer that size in NNY it would normally need to be at least 4.5.

Buck 1 looks older in the first pic but in the second looks younger. He could be 3.5 but I don't believe he is over 4.5. Buck two is more difficult. I'm going by rack size here.

Buck one is videoed in the fall and has a neck that does not flow seamlessly from the body Buck 2 is a summertime photo so the neck muscles are not yet bulging and has just a slight swayed back.
Leif Busby

Would have guessed the first at 4.5 but with his tarsal glands having no staining confidence is low. 2nd buck rack is too big for a young deer as his neck would suggest and he just looks old.
Jeremy Forbord

Mainly a wild guess as there's no imperial data to go off. Buck one looked older than buck two, but didn't look like a 5.5 year old to me.

Deer 1 has a nice big body but I'm thinking a SKA deer any older than 3.5 would have more mass and a thicker chest. Deer #2 looks thick in velvet but that face is still a little snubby to be mature.

Buck #1, thick neck, wide body, and shape of head, mature deer. Buck #2, based on body size, and leg length/body proportion, not as old as deer #1, antler development says at 3.5 to me.

Both bucks appear mature with a beginning of a big brisket area, but back lines are very straight and the bellies aren't very saggy, so I wouldn't go so far as to say they're 5 or older yet...

The first seems fully mature but not aged, confident and dominant. Puts him in the 5-7yr range. The second looks younger, not yet a full body, but grown enough to almost be there. 3-4yrs

Buck No. 1 has a blocky appearance and a deep chest and deep belly characteristics of a 4.5 to 6.5 year old so I will guess 5.5. Buck No. 2 is not quite as blocky and has a leaner appearance.

The first buck has saggy skin under his chin and gray on his face. Also his legs look stumpier for his body, than it would on a younger deer. Summer deer are harder to age. I based my guess on body.

1st deer still looks young, no sway back at all a lot of weight still in the ass end. Deer two, I am from NY and I know where your property is takes at least 4 years here for a buck to get that big!

looks to me to be the body shape and mass of a canadian buck would be at that age for buck #1. buck #2 looks like the 5.5 year olds we have running around in ohio during the summer.

I put buck 2 older because of the width of his rack compared to the verticalness of buck 1

Buck 1 has heavy body of a mature deer. Might be even older but northern deer are large. Buck 2 is younger with a less mature body.

Buck #1 I was going back and forth btween 4.5 and 5.5, but face made me lean toward 4.5... Buck #2 is absolutely difficult seeing it is early season and in an area of the country that I am unfamiliar.

Buck one has a big body and neck. Almost looks like he has short legs. He's mature. Buck 2 is young, 3.5 tops. Slender body and pencil neck, and his legs look very long.

#1 could be 4 1/2 but he had a young face. #2 Early season deer, especially in velvet are impossible to age. Not a good enough video to have more than a guess

Saskatchewan buck- Heany in shoulders, cylindrical body...seems to lack the heavier facial structure of a typical 4 year old. NY buck, just looks like a 2 year old. Skinny, light horned, chest is same
