I'm terrible once they reach 2.5 or older and the P3 drops a cusp. My guess is 4.5. Let's see what the experts think.

I'd need more of a side view to tell a little better, but with as much dentine as is showing, I'd say it's 5.5 at least.

6.5 or 7.5 yr old, it's kinda hard to tell exactly because of the angle of the photo, but there is to much enamel worn to be younger than 5.5 IMHO.

Thayer, the teeth weren't worn as much as the 10 1/2 year old was.

Here are a couple side views.

Default Tooth Wear

On our property, it would be classified as a 6.5 yr old deer. We have been pulling incisors this year to compare age estimates betewwn the two techniques. I'm looking forward to getting the results back from the cementum annuli estimates!

My next goal (for 08) is to learn more about this. Would love to see more of these kinds of discussions and expert reads.

I agree with BSK here...6.5+...once they get into one of the 'anomaly' age classes outside the normal range, there is not much need to get an exact age because it does not affect management all that much to know...plus I don't see many deer older than 5.5, so I'm a little hesitant to say! If I were to estimate though, I'd say 7.5.

That doe field dressed at 92 pounds. That equaled the lightest field dressed weight of an adult doe harvested from my property. She is also the second oldest doe we have harvested. She had two fawns with her, I also got the doe fawn.
