How old do you think this deer is? The aging by tooth was surprising to me .... or incorrect.

The tooth wear said 6.5. I just found it hard to believe as there were bigger bucks on the property. But he's a beautiful deer. Took him with a bow. Hell look good on the walll. Thanks for your local knowledge.

You all maybe right at 3.5. I dont know the credentials of the tooth examiner. Im just glad you arent saying 2.5.

He was a last day buck so was happy to take him home.

I don't usually argue with the "experts" but I'm not buying 6.5 yrs. Looks more like 3.5-4.5 to me. Nice buck no matter the age.

We shoot 5-8 year old bucks that look like the one pictured above often, usually scoring 100-120. There are the occasional bucks that make 140-150+, but the majority of the bucks are small, regardless of age.
I do not know if it is genetics or vegitation, but we get new hunters are surprised when they shoot 120 pound 6-7 year old that scores 100, when they thought they were thinning out the young 8 pointers.
