I vote yes. The 7/26 pic the buck's head is up while the 8/17 pic his head is more looking down. Right brow tine and G2/G3's appear to have same curve and similar length....although the left G2 on the older pic appears smaller because his head is tilted back. Same buck IMO....

I'd say 1 in a million. So I'm saying there might be a chance.

Thanks guys- I really appreciate all the replies. Some of you might remember the 7/26 buck, as I posted him in a previous poll with a 10 pointer who was photographed on 7/20.

In the previous poll, I felt this 9 pointer (in the 7/26 picture) was actually a 10- with his right G4 hidden by his right end beam due to the angle.

Here's the photo from the previous comparison:



So the reality is- that we have at least one 10, one 9 & a few decent 8's running around this area where my buddy & I have two food plots.

Judging by the looks of both right sides, and the way the tines curve inward, I'd almost bet they are the same buck.

I love going against the grain. If you look at the rear legs, I'd say the second set of pics are the same but the first set is not. See the white markings on the inner part of the leg, present in second set on both, on one in first but not the other.

So to recap- 95% of the folks who voted, feel that there is a 75% chance or better that these two photos are of the same buck.

I would have to agree.
