Aging, DNR tooth removal

Thread starter #1
So what’s the process to find out the age of a bear one kills after the DNR has pulled a tooth? Who do I contact ? And how long does it take?

Twin, they usually wait until the end of the season and then send all the teeth off to a lab in Montana for aging. I was told my that it would be around August before they received those results. HOwever, you have to call their main office to get those results. I have yet to do so---completely forgot about it.

It was October of the next year before I was able to find out and I started calling around July. I was told they all go to the same lab and they do it for other states as well. So be patient. Expect to wait till late summer. This is the guy to call the last I knew. Adam Hamond 706-295-6041
