If you've ever brought your antelope to a field check station, a biologist probably aged it for you by looking at its teeth, and told you some basic things about how they did it. But you probably still had questions about how the animal's age was determined, and wondered if you couldn't do it yourself. This guide will help successful hunters estimate pronghorn ages.
