Re: Deer Age Comparison
We look at size, joint color and texture , teeth growth, size of rack.
Most deer we take are what I call middle- lower classed gene pool bucks in our area.
The true upper classed(huge) bucks we never see or just a fast look or they are on posted ground. Closest we came to one was 10 guys 7 acres and he still snuck out, I tried two shot at 350-400 yds. just too thick. Found one a huge 6 illegal for us to shot, 18 inch inside spread, 1 3/4" diameter bases we think he was 4.5 to 5.5 years old. Both these deer would be on posted ground now. We can no longer hunt these thickets. One day one of us will get lucky.
