4a Jawbone

A close view of the buck's jawbone.

Based upon tooth wear, the King Buck is believed to have been 5 ½ years old when it was killed. Interestingly, the buck was a clean 10-pointer the previous year. A neighboring farmer found those sheds about a mile from where the deer was eventually killed. (Photo by Kris Kandler, copyright F&W Media 2011)
