Default New growth

This buck is begining to show some new bone.I think it is a buck that I passed up several times this past season.Looking good though.Disregard the month date.I'm heading back out now to reset it.

Default Certianly looks the same

Especially around the eyes. Hopefully he will have more growth this year.

Around the eyes is exactly how I believe its the same deer.I'm going to keep a watch on it and see how things develop through the spring/summer.

I don't think it's the same deer (I could also be wrong )The racked buck has alot more grey on the muzzle, could easily be his offspring though. The "mangy" one is likely loosing his winter coat.

I was thinking the same thing maybe because of fierce food

Looks like a different deer to me. Possibly one of the larger bucks off spring.
The growth on the top deer does look heavy for this time of year - I hope you can get a picture of him this fall, if he's still in the area.

He's loseing his winter coat. All the deer I saw turkey hunting the last few weeks look the same. Pretty mangy! Id say its the same buck. The grey in his face will change with the season and coat for that time of the year.
