Pronghorn: Age Results
A process called cementum annuli forensic aging will be used to estimate ages of harvested pronghorn. The procedure requires the two front teeth (incisors) from the harvested animalís lower jaw. Incisor removal from the lower jaw will not affect your trophy if you plan to have it mounted. Age estimates will be provided to hunters who participate in the check stations free of charge. Age results will be posted on our website by check station receipt number once data is received from the lab.
Biologists also encourage all hunters who harvest pronghorn in the Panhandle to bring their harvested animal to a check station. Information from your animal will be used in comparative analysis with the experimental areas and your animal will be aged for free.
Age results will be posted in January, 2015.
