Default Age please?

Milam county. My guess is 4.5-5.5. Any chance he is still 3.5? Thanks ahead of time.

Cool. Thanks! I'm pretty new to this. I shot a nice 5.5 year old, (the taxi aged) in this spot a few weeks back and I thought this deer looked younger.

Thanks! I'm used to hunting over on the MS river. Nobody practices any management there but I think their 2 year old deer are the size of our 4-5s. Got a lot to learn.

I am in the 5.5 camp. I don't see enough sway in his back to be more than that.

5.5 is good enough. Old enough that family/ friend can fill their tag without me having any regrets.

Can yall tell me what you are looking at to determine that he is at least 5?

2 and 3 year olds are pretty easy but I get lost after that.

And for the jaw pictures. Im being told 3.5 based on the teeth. Does that look right? I'll go back and find the deer pics to post back up.

Just like the deer I shot last season. I thought he was 4.5-5.5 and the jaw looks younger than yours. Same county

not having a chart to compare to, but based on what i remember of it, yes that looks like the younger deer teeth, so around 3.5 +/-.

They can fool you...and a lot of us!

Pics from season. This is my first year trying to actually age deer. Thought I had it figured out but this is kinda a set back. Hate that we killed him now beings he had a broken main and a broken tine. Big healthy deer. Maybe he was 4.5?

I have had this occur in Milan county as well. Maybe they just trick me. This buck for example showed tooth age of only 3.5.

I cannot see the original pics. But the teeth show a textbook example of 4.5. Looking at the trail cam pics and harvest photos, I would say 4.5-5.5. Nice buck, congrats!
