Our Method

Cementum aging is the most accurate method available, especially for older deer. The tooth replacement method is most accurate for deer up to 2.5 years old, but the tooth wear method used for older animals is often just an educated guessing game. Cementum aging, on the other hand, is typically consistent regardless of age-class within a population. By trusting the cementum aging professionals at Matson’s Lab, you can be assured your deer is being aged scientifically and accurately.
