On that side profile look at the depth of the skull from the forehead down to the jaw bone. On the pic walking toward, look at the skin hanging off his dewlap. Not to mention the age around his eyes.

The age in his face is what's getting me.

Funny you say that, that's the only young trait I see in him.

Hocks look pretty stained for an august deer, Chest is very deep, looks to have loose skin on neck and jaw, face looks old. Curious how the "biologist" came up with that age estimation?

Do you have jaw pics? If that is what he looked at.

I'll prolly get shunned for this.... buttttt I don't completely trust the whole age by the teeth thing. Too many variables imo.
