Default Age opinions please (Before and after harvest pics)

I would like to hear second opinions on age. I will be sending incisor off as well but am interested in what the GS says.

4.5 or 5.5 but I think 4.5. One thing for sure is that he wont get any older. Congrats!

Great deer to send the teeth off. I am going to say 5.5. I've sent off teeth that looked less wore than those and they came back from lab at 6.5. Keep us updated on the results.

Great buck! I would judge him at 4.5 possibly 5.5, for me in management on good bucks I'd rather age them a year younger that older.

The side view shows the crest on #4 to be well worn. Good example of 5.5. At 6.5 the crest would be gone on #4 and it would be the first smooth tooth. At 4.4 the crest on #4 should show only a small amount of wear.

Teeth 5.5, first night pic 6.5+, last pic looks 4.5 and the ldp's look old enough!
Congrats Zach, very nice buck!

All together I don't see that deer younger than 5.5

that was exactly what i thought but I know almost zero about teeth, I had to look at the picture.

If I only saw the picture i would have thought at least 5.5 and never would have even considered 4.5.

he looks 4 to me. I can't speak on the teeth, as I have no idea how they wear in that county.

I've seen 5 year old deer come out of the sand country in kenedy county that look like they're 7+.. 8 year old deer that are protein hogs that look 5. Tooth wear is all relative based on your place.

Good looking deer no mater what!
I have him at 4 based on pics and teeth. I know teeth were proven by CKWRI not an exact science, so really interested in what you find out.

Btw, tell us more where you can send the teeth off.

4 to 5, i have read where the age of deer was known and still were miss aged by many of the experts and even missed by the lab. We all know it is not an exact science but fun to try. Congrats on a great buck!

That's a great buck! Congrats again. Teeth are sometimes hard to go by. I shot a buck on our old deer lease that we had pictures of him for over 5yrs so we knew he was at least 6.5+, but when we looked at his teeth, he looked like a 3.5-4.5yr old.
