Default Same buck,or same gene pool

Night time shot is from the other day.Daytime picture is from last season.I'm still trying to determine if it is the same deer,or just from the same gene pool.If it is the same buck,it looks like it may have lost some size this year.There are enough similarities in the racks to really make me wonder if it is the same deer or not.

I'm no expert but I would say same gene pool not same buck. main reason being that the brow tine is much larger this year but the g2 is much smaller. I don't know if that means anything or not but my line of thinking is that if one got larger the other would have dome the same or at least stayed the same as last year. I may be way off base but like i said, I'm no expert.

I'd say two different deer also the more I look at it.I really like your observation also.
