I have been intrerested in trying to age roe deer for so years and have saved the lower jaws from some of the deer i and some of my clients have shot over the years.
I do not clame to be an expert in any way and would wecome your comments and input on this thread.
firat head and teeth are from animal which is about 11 mounths old you can see the first three new teeth pushing though at the front of the jaw ( you can see this animal in the flesh with scotland rifles in the previous thread in this section)
The next jaw and head is from a good six pointer which i guess is 4-5 years old mybe even less and i am only guessing because of the wear on the teeth, if you think different please let me know.
next one is an old animal all six molars have a lot of wear as you can see.
the only thing you can tell is that the animal is defiantly under or over 14 mounths old, i have found that if the buck has a big head he may not be as old as you think sometimes, your thoughts please guys and girls.
hope this thread helps some of the new guys.
