Default Same Deer?

Got this pic last year

Got this pic a few days ago

Both pics taken at the same spot. Is this the same guy?

RI, it's hard to tell from the pic, but if it's the same buck, then it hasn't grown additional tines. I know some bucks will occasionally stay the same and just grow larger racks. I would think more that it is a year younger brother.

I know the angle is slightly different, but the nose on the velvet buck looks more narrow to me. It looks like a younger deer.

I think it is two different deer as well. When he has hard horns you should be able to tell pretty easily.
