Definitely 2 1/2 and might be 3 1/2. But certainly no older than 3 1/2.
Why do you say "certainly no older" .....I thought tooth wear set the minimum age??
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.
