Same Buck?
« on: January 16, 2016, 07:46:25 PM »
Found these two sheds within about 150 yards of one another. The older one was found in August and the newer one was found late December. Asked a few of my friends what they thought and we believe they are the same buck but I thought I'd share and get your opinion. Thanks for your input.

I'm guessing the bottom of the older one is chewed a bit? If not pedicle shape would go a long way toward giving a reliable indication of the same buck. But without that, I would say its very possible. Looks like a couple year spread between the 2.

Definitely a few years between the two. I found the bleached out one in the timber and the newer one right in the grass exposed to the sun. I believe I saw the same buck in velvet in the area when I found the older one. It will be interested to see if I can find a possible third year shed.

Gotta be the same. Keep up the hard work. There's probably bigger ones in their.
