Default Antler growth question

All 3 of these deer are all from the same area near my house, just wandering whats the major difference in the antler growth on them.

I understand they are all young, but considering they come from same area and were all on the same cam, seems like they should be eating the same things.

Im not managing the deer in anyway, but would either of them be worth taking out to help the populations later growth?

i really believe they are too young to make that decision. No way to tell what they will turn out to be at that age

Its actually in a rural area, with a few 1-200 acre tracks in between neighborhoods. The area they roam is probably a 7-800 acre area. To my knowledge the only hunting done on the area is illegal.

A lot of the property was bought up by investors to put developments through but has gotten put on hold due to the housing market downfall over the past few years. The other linking property is a city sewer line that runs about 15 miles out of the city to a waste water treatment plant.

Other than that its just old stomping grounds everyone around here grew up on riding atvs and such on.

lots of water available from creeks,ponds etc through out it as well

EDIT: Here is a map of the area, the red area has no homes at all, I put the yellow circle in there as a reference, its 119 acres according to our GIS Mapping.
