Does anyone know at what age Lord Krishna was killed by the hunter (the rebirth of Vali)?

Are there any scriptural references available for this?

Its Vali, Bali he also known as Bali Chakravarti who lived (still alive) in Krutayuga or Satyayuga. – Bharadwaj Jul 9 '14 at 14:06

Krishna lived for 125 years; in the Srimad Bhagavatam, Brahma tells Krishna that it's time for his life on earth to end:

O Supreme Personality of Godhead, O my Lord, You have descended into the Yadu dynasty, and thus You have spent one hundred twenty-five autumns with Your devotees.

There's another popular way to calculate his age: the Matsya Purana apparently contains a reference to Krishna being 89 years old during the Mahabharata War (see here), and the Mausala Parva of the Mahabharata says that Krishna died 36 years after the war, which adds up to 125 years total.

Lord Krishna's birth date was 18th July 3228 BCE and Death date was 18th February 3102 BCE (the start of Kali Yuga) according to DrikPanchang.

Then the age must be 126 years,,, – Kiran RS Jul 9 '14 at 13:34
@KiranRS true and mahabharatha was happened when Shri Krishna was of age around 90 years. It was common back at that time. – Mr_Green Jul 9 '14 at 15:38
