3.5 max. Don't know if it makes a difference that it was from OH.

Definitely 2 1/2 and might be 3 1/2. But certainly no older than 3 1/2.

I am wondering that too. Looking at the wear at the far back of the last tooth it looks like it should definitely be 3.5.

There is some wear on the 2nd cusp of the 4th tooth (first molar), but I wouldn't call it significant wear. The dentine is not wider than the enamel. In addition, the crests of the 4th tooth are still very high and sharp.

However, the first three teeth (premolars) show more wear than would be normal for a 2 1/2, which is why I'm leaning towards 3 1/2.

Why do you say "certainly no older" .....I thought tooth wear set the minimum age?? A few years ago a guy on here had a bruiser, everybody said def 2.5 until they saw the buck, and then a cross section of the tooth showed older. The jawbone had the minimal amount of wear you would expect any 2 year old to have, in reality he was probably 4 years old.

I think this deer is at least 3.5.....there is defined wear on all molars and premolars, and the last cusp of the 3rd molar is definately worn down and longer concave. In my experience that is a clue to an older deer whose teeth are worn lightly elsewhere.

He field dressed at 155 pounds I do believe. But was killed late in the rut (Shotgun season) so I'm sure he had lost some weight by then


Scored 149 1/8

True, I should have been more clear. My age estimates are for the Severinghuas toothwear aging process. based on the criteria of that aging process, the age indicated is definitely not older than 3 1/2. Now how old the deer really is is a different matter.

Taxadermist told him 4.5, but Chad felt he was 3.5.
