    Default Two different bucks?

    Trying to figure out if these pictures are of the same deer,or are they different animals.To me the first deer appears to have a longer sweep to its right beam,and the buck in the second photo does not appear to have a browtine on its right antler. Also,the sweep appears to be shorter.Wish I had better pictures.Thoughts?

    The top buck has a white patch next to his brisket. Almost like his white belly hair comes up more than the other deer in pic 2. Could just be the angle??? I see the lack of a brow tine as well. To me it looks like 2 different bucks. Number 2 lacks the height of number 1 as well.

    Hard to tell. No definate right brow on the 2nd. Looks like something, but is that backround?
    I think two different deer, good ones.

    Pretty sure it still was in velvet in that picture.I zoomed in on it when I downloaded it,and to me it appears that way.The two things that really throw me are what appears to be a lack of a browtine in the second picture,and the longer sweep of the right main beam.Then again pictures are decieving;especially when the deer is in velvet,and you really can't get a clear picture of the supposed missing right browtine in the second picture.

    I'm thinking it's two different deer due to the difference in antler mass and body size evident from the pictures. Just my 2 cents worth

    I would say 2 different bucks. The bottom one tips don't sweep up like the one on top. Also his right side is a lot weaker then the one on top.

    I think I just seen him the other night here In NE or one that looked just like him at about 40 yards from my tree stand. It was a to risky of a shot so I did try it.

    If you look at second deer, he does have a brow tine running upwards in front of ear. Definately two different bucks though. Put em down.

    I think two deer top looks like right eye guard is shorter. I would guess brothers. I have 4 bucks two are large 3 pointers can't tell apart except 1 is red and other is gray. Also have a nice forky that has a twin with two 1" forks at top of main beam on one side. Can't tell apart unless I'm very very close. I'm talkin Muley's.

    Same deer no doubt, if you look at the tip of the G3 on the left side.......just kidding, its two different bucks for sure.

    I'd shoot the top one first.
