Not sure if I totally buy the tooth age accuracy. I killed a black bear that was 6.5ft long and weighed a bunch. WDFW aged it as 1yr old from tooth. This boar was no one year old.

Sounds like he was a lot longer in the tooth than that.🤣

My son killed a smaller sow in the high country, and they said 12 1/2, I donít believe it.

How were her teeth ??  You can tell more from their teeth than their size/weight.  Im sure you know that, just curious.

Wdfw didnt age it, they sent it to a lab to be aged.  That being said, cementum aging isnt 100% accurate.  I read where qdma took a number of deer of known ages and sent teeth off.  I believe they used 2 different labs.  They would send terth from the same deer to two different labs and quite often got different results.  Results were pretty commonly a year higher or lower than the deers actual age, and sometimes off by 2 years.  In your case of a large bear being aged at 1 year, its also possible that teeth got mixed up.  A neighbor killed a very large boar that the results called 2 years old.  Not possible.
  Cementum aging gives you a good idea, but its not perfect.  Generally if they say an animal is 5 yrs old for example, its a pretty good bet that its 4- 6.
