Default Is this the same buck ??

OK- take a look at this photo of two bucks. They are photos taken 7 days apart. I first thought that the photo taken on 7/26 was of a 9 pointer, but the more I study the photo, the more I'm starting to feel he's the same buck as the photo on the left taken 7 days earlier.

I know the first thing someone will make note of is the difference in the left browtine. But remember, the 7/26 photo is taken 7 days later- could a browtine grow that much in 7 days?

The other obvious difference is the right G4- it's clearly there in the 7/20 photo, but in the 7/26 photo (due to the angle) I'm starting to feel it's hidden by the right G5.

Other similarities include markings on both necks & the shape/line formed by the white underhair on the rear right leg. So give me your feedback as a "percentage chance of it being the same buck".



Thanks,

Rob

The buch on the left looks like it has 1 more tines on the left set, and his nose looks longer and skinner.
I might be wrong but it looks like two different bucks.

JMHO

In my area - no doubt they would be the same buck - there would not be 2 this size and similar enough to even wonder.

I think they are the same deer -

The two angles couldn't be much more different - so its hard to compare -
Hopefully you'll get another one to confirm both - but I agree with you

Same

I would say yes they are different deer, look at the g-2 and g-3 on the left antler. Nice deer either way, good luck.

No they are different bucks. Look at the end of the antlers on both bucks. One is more blunt that the other...

One is more blunt because it has less growth...........Same buck

I would say yes they are the same and reason being is the right G2 grows thick @ the bottom and then thins out about half way up the tine.
It appears you can see this transition "SLIGHTLY" on the earlier photo and that's why I pick yes

I guess possibly same, but not 100% sure. Need a different view on the second rack.

I think there is a really good chance that this is the same buck. If they are not the same buck, they are without a doubt out of the same gene pool. Great looking deer, I hope you are able to on him/them this fall. Good luck!

This has been a very entertaining thread. I thank everyone who voted and posted replies. Now, here's some food for thought:



Can you tell I think it's the same deer? Believe me- it would sure be better for me if they were two different deer.
