Take my opinion on this as it ain't worth a nickel. I don't know anything about jawbones. Ha all I can do is look at pictures and compare. But logical sense would say that a deer eating grasses and AG fields his entire life would have less wear than a deer eating acorns 6-7 months out of the year for his entire life.


That is a very plausible hypothesis.

Some deer may have TMJ and grind their teeth especially in high pressure hunting areas. Could this affect their tooth wear? I like to chew ice so I'm thinking northern deer may have more relative wear on their teeth. Seriously, when ageing bucks using tooth wear, other factors are also considered such as body confirmation, antler mass, etc. to determine age. So the tooth wear becomes a confirming factor in most cases. Does are a different matter however. JMO

Times have changed. I remember when TWRA biologists were needed to age a deer by looking at the teeth. Now most TnDeer members can age them just by looking at them, dead or alive.
