Maybe they have been eating something that is tough on their teeth (pea gravel ) but I feel confident the staff there have all been around long enough to age them as accurately as anyone

The floods really hurt the population from what I was told. 1:32 deer density currently and I think they said it was around 1:12

The deer we saw were all healthy and slick looking

Kevin maybe we will meet someday

Congrats on the buck

Eh... I don't know about that, we shot a buck on a youth hunt at a state park last year that looked 3.5+ all day long and the biologist aged it @ 2.5. Just out of curiousity I sent the incisors in for cementum aging and results came back he was 4.5 years old... so theres that
