Finally got around to doing a European mount for my son's buck. I was curious what yalls thoughts were as to the age of it is based on the teeth.

You have a pic of the other side of the jaw? One from the top?

Appears to be a mature deer from that pic.

Can't tell from that angle. Need to see the teeth from above to gauge dentene/enamel. Agree with redchevy though, that one pic looks mature. Probably 6.5.

He's old. The fact that the tooth is about where the gum line would be I'd say he's 7.5 at least. Prolly closer to 8.5 though.

I couldn't tell if that tooth was broken or worn from the pic.

The top is covered in bleaching stuff right now. Here's a pic of the other bottom jaw. Top one is the right side. Bottom is left.

They look worn not broken. Stand by...I'll get a pic from the top of the bottom jaws.

Like redchevy said maybe the tooth is broken.

There appears to be a decent tip to most of those teeth. I'm still learning though

Need to see a vertical pic to see more dentine (not sure if that's spelled correctly)

Post mature deer IMO if I've been taught correctly

Significant wear on the oldest set of teeth (4th from the front)

Yeah I tried to look at pictures of other teeth to figure it out myself but I have never tried to age one like this before. Thanks for the input guys!

I was always taught to look at the bottom jaw for aging.

Looks very similar to the buck my wife shot this year, maybe just a touch more wear on this deer and we called hers 5-6 years old.

Do we get a peak at the antlers? smile

Sorry - don't know why they are all coming out sideways. But this was his first time deer hunting and his first deer! He had a blast! It was a 7 pt cull from my friends ranch in south Texas.

Starting to 2nd guess my post mature estimate.

I don't think I've ever seen a deer with that much wear on the 4th set and what appears to be so little wear on the last sets.

Wish someone more knowledgeable would chime in, but congrats to the little guy either way. up
