like 229 and change or something... i have other examples of those ear marks, but since we paid a lot of attention to that deer a 5 year history was most easily accessible by using him. I really wonder what he looked like at 3. My picture records only start to be in depth in 02-03.

[QUOTE=tuthdoc;1287689]Wow. Love those drops. You get to hunt that uncle's ranch?

Gunther, is the 3 and beam on the left broken on that rascal?

Ear marks and throat patches and general color and facial characteristics are all great tools in IDing deer. The young deer doesn't have the black mark, but I don't know how good they are in IDing deer year to year. I don't know what causes edge blackening. Is it rubbing of the ear on the horns or an injury in the brush? I know tooth tears and nothches are great IDers. Once there, they're always there. If a deer has a notched ear this year, it'll be there next year. It's how we knew that MLD went from a 163ish deer to a 226.

Here's an example. This deer has had the notch on his right ear since our first encounter.

The next year, he added a black spot on the top of the left ear and an additional notch.

The notch allow us to know it's him even when he sheds his horns.

Here he is this year. I have to crop off the horns to stay out of trouble, but you can see that he has the notches, but the black spot is gone.

Could this be Ghost?

I did not know you could do that in your profile, Very Cool

Did you ever take more pictures of the two deer you and your dad shot and then mounted together?
