If he is 1.5 years old he is a yearling.

A yearling is any deer that has had its first birthday, but not yet its second.

I agree he certainly looks like a yearling,. But we always have the DNR check the age of our bucks we shoot, and sometimes even ones that look similiar or smaller to this end up being 2.5 year olds. Ya never know for sure until you see the teeth.:D

He is definately 11/2.
Either a late fawn last year or he has weak genetics.
Time will tell, all that they need is time.;)
