Jaw looks young but I have seen KNOWN 5.5 year olds look exactly like that.. It is a guess at best. What did his body/head look like?

Dentine on #4 not as wide or wider than enamel that surrounds it, so teeth say 2 yrs.

Was the known 5 yr old captured, wild, and ear tagged as a fawn?

tooth aging isn't perfect but if you brought that to me i'd say 3.5 all day

i think most deer wear their teeth pretty reliably but if you are losing your mind over it pull the front incisors and send them in

Somehow I only see that guy on teeth aging threads. I killed one that was 7+ this year with the teeth of a 4 year old. Itís a guess at best.

He is a "biologist".. Educated I think. I do not trust books.

The teeth show at least 3, if not 4. Definitely NOT 2. And donít waste your $$ sending the teeth in to have them cut. Itís no more accurate than a guess.

Donít worry AT ALL what the teeth show. It is a horribly inaccurate way to age deer. I donít care what any book says or what any person says. The most accurate way is to have history with that deer and deer herd. If you donít have that then itís just a guess that you have to base on body characteristics, attitude around other bucks, ect. But not the teeth.

Before I saw the pics of the buck I was going to say 3. After seeing the buck I still say 3. Nice 3 year old.

He looks like a 3/4 yr old I don’t believe you can tell by teeth. Models don’t tell what the deer was foraging on in your area. In east Texas, 2 yr old spikes have no teeth from all the pea gravel.

Hes probably 4 1/2. He has 4 good points on each side and a little almost point. I'm point aging instead of tooth aging now. Seems more accurate

Based on the pics of the deer he's a youngster.

I have always counted the creases in the fat rolls between their ears and their head. That is what tells you their age.

I mean, that works if you can't find their poop. Pills clump together after 3 years old. 4 pills 4yr old. 5pills 5yr old. etc if its just a big wad, his prostate is so enlarged, that he must be way post mature.

Not exact but still way closer than tooth aging.

What criteria are you seeing that would qualify as 4 yrs?

What I see is that the dentine is wider than the enamel on #4 ( 3 yr old) and some would argue the same for #5 (4 yr old).

Ah! I think I see. The criteria is based on the crests on the tongue side (lingual), not the cheek side.
