These are from the deer I shot on New Year’s Eve, What little I know about tooth wear and comparing enamel against dentine I believe this deer was 5.5 or older. The fourth tooth (1st molar) is flattened out and really worn. What do you think?

He's an oldie or liked to chew sand.

Agree with Hook-N-Line. Sand can make a big difference.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.
