I vote no. Horns are different and bottom deer looks to be at least a year older/bigger in the body.

Hard to say for sure but it’s very possible it’s the save buck.

I can see the same white spot on his left ear in both pics/years.

If your dates are correct then its definately not same deer... 2014 buck is older/bigger than 2017 pics.
And if dates are wrong the black and white photos are of an older buck.

Dates are correct. I think its the same deer. In 2014 I figure he is 4+ years old, thus the reason for the thinner older body now. No distinguishing marks other than the white spot on his ear.

Makes for an interesting discussion anyway.

No. New pic buck is 2.5 max. Old pic buck is 5.5+. Similar genetics, maybe, but that's all.

Yeah probably so. I just figured he might have lost weight due to age. I would probably pass on the big 8 I got pics of to take that spike....just to get him out of the herd and to look at his jaw.

With dates being correct I would say no way. There's not 3 yrs. body difference between the '14 pics and the '17 pics.

Personally, I doubt it. I think the deer in the top 2 pics is not old enough to be the deer in the bottom 2 pics 3 years later. They are both young deer. I would take out the top deer, though. JMO

Don't old deer have the same build as immature deer, lean and skinny? I mean look at his nose and face, that's an awful long nose for a young deer.. If I get him I will post his a pic of his jaw.

He may be young, I just think he is old and declining.

Top deer is young. Some old old bucks will decline fast and drop weight, but they will never have that young tight buck look to them.

Quite possile. The 6 just vanished, then this feller showed up making me think it was him just older and reduced health. Same beam shape and long nose

for how young he is I would let him walk. But from other threads I can see you aren't big on letting deer reach maturity.

A lot of deer 1.5 years old are 2-4 pointers and he has a frame already
