Well I got the results back and I’m quite pleased with the results.At full disclosure this was a hunt by gun on December 27.Good to Lewis
Few bucks live that long. Congrats
Thanks Charlie this was right after surgery and a minus 5 degree and I ended up with pneumonia oh well that’s 2 on us that’s aged 61/2 take care Lewis
How much does it cost to have one aged?
Very cool… My buddy sent the teeth from this years coues deer in to be aged… he said it came back at 9 1/2 … I was amazed
I guess best picture I think deer age. Com runs around 40 bucks Lewis
Yeah, he's got a grey muzzle on him for sure... Congrats!
Very rare for one to live that long in my areas...
Great buck !!
You all know that ages from Southern deer are not as accurate due to their environmental conditions, not as much seasonal extremes I think they say. Never the less great buck again!
Great buck congrats. Love the old ones.
When you get as old as we are Lewis, you can kill ‘em with a car if you want to ! ;-) Nice buck !
I'm always curious as to the true accuracy of those things. I still occasionally send one in just to check and they state the accuracy is really good...like 90% or so. However, lots of other research suggest otherwise. I feel like they tend to always be on the older side with the estimates personally but still like to get some type of feedback. I also keep jawbones to compare as well. Only way to tell reliably is trail cam pics though IMO. Congrats on a nice deer.
I was very familiar with this buck and through years of trail cam pictures and several close encounters while scouting and hunting I knew he was over 41/2 had it not been for a crazy water bottle squeak on a hot August evening I would have had a great opportunity at 15 yards during Tennessees first velvet season retrieving this guy almost got me he went off a bluff covered with snow on ice Good luck Lewis
Nice buck! Congratulations
Very nice Lewis. That is an old buck for sure. The oldest free range buck I ever saw was aged at 8.5. The oldest tagged deer that we knew the age of exactly was a doe at 11.5
That is an awesome buck that you killed
