By the pictures of him, especially the sagged belly and well defined front shoulder, I was guessing 4.5 easy. I dont really know how to age by teeth, but i expected to see more wear. So i guess 3.5 to 4.5 is going to be the consensus.

When looking at the teeth alone, what leads you to believe it is 4.5?

If yall were to look only at the pictures and not the jawbone, what would you say? I agree that the jawbone says 3.5, but I can't reconcile that with what the deer looks like on the hoof. I've got a lot of pictures of various deer on that farm and several that I am almost certain are 3.5 and this deer looked definitively older than those. Wonder if the taxidermist got the jawbones mixed up. Or maybe I'm just in denial. Probably denial.

Jawbones only show minimum age. Do you have any Nov trail cam pics? It is hard to tell age in Sept. I lean towards 4.5 from the trail cam but would like to see a late Oct or Nov pic.
