The correct answer is 5 years old because at this age, bucks have reached their prime in terms of body size, antler development, and breeding potential. They have had enough time to grow and mature, allowing them to compete for mates and establish dominance in their territory. Bucks that are 3 years old may still be growing and developing, while bucks that are 7 years old may start to decline in physical condition. Therefore, 5 years old is generally considered the age at which bucks are at their peak in terms of hunting and trophy potential.
