Damn...that buck is a horse.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Different deer me thinks.  That second one looks like 200+ lbs.  The young one is sure a chip off the old block, huh?  Virtually identical.  Cool pics.  Thanks for posting!

That first buck is 150 lbs max in that summer photo.  Back is straight, not a heavy buck - at least three years old, possibly four. Look at the size of his eyes in relation to his head - rather large.  Not Bambi large, but not a 5 or 6 year old buck. 

The second buck is a pig.  His back looks like it's ready to break from the weight he's carrying, and his belly is rounded and hanging low .  His eyes appear tiny in relation to his head, which is expected for a buck over five.  The eyes don't grow with the skull, so they appear to get smaller and smaller as the buck ages.  This might even be a seven year old or older buck.

Not the same buck, unless he's found the fountain of youth.  No way that pig from two years ago looks like the first picture now.

Difference between August deer and one in the rut. Definitely the same deer. That rack is a freaking finger print.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

if this is accurate, that is some amazingly consistent antler genetics, too bad that one photo is so fuzzy.  One, or both, are amazing deer either way!
