I don't know guys, looks like the same deer to me from a different angle and he's a bit more "rutted up" in the second pic.
Look how the right side both have the little claw at the end.

Considering that the two pics were taken only 6 hrs 49 mins apart, I doubt that is the same deer. Also notice the difference in color along the ridge of his back.

I said almost... I bet that second buck is 4.5 years old. Mature is around 5.5 or older. The first one is an example of a young gun. They are comparisons.

I am not sure what the time difference has to do with anything, but the tine length on the g2 on the right side is not the same.

MDDave, if shoot deer at that size, that's all you'll ever have. Let'em grow a couple of years and you'll have the kind of bucks we all really want to kill.

To each their own, in my neck of the woods both are shooters. I would be happy if either one strolled by my stand.We don't eat antlers. It's in the eye of the beholder.JMO
