Here is a buck I took pics of back in 2015-16 season then again in the 2017-18 season.
These pics were taken in Jan 2016 from that season. I guessed him as a 5 yr old and around 174 or so gross.




These pics were taken in Oct 2017 from this past season. I guessed him as a 7 yr old and only around 170 gross...but I was wrong on my guess. He was about 1.75 miles from the blind I took pics in during the 2015-16 season.

It's difficult to really tell from the photos, but it appears beams are about the same mass, while fingers lost some circumference. Great buck regardless. Photos aren't too shabby either. I'd like to see a full size photo of the three amigos coming in through the cactus. Can you post up a larger size?

His beams were both over 26" in 2017-18 and for reference his inside spread was 25". 6x5 frame with 2 NT points also.In that pic with the 3 bucks they were about 300-350 yards out in that pic. These 3 pics are at about 200-250 yards IIRC.



Here is a larger file size of that first pic. The originals are to large to post and I am on Hughes Net so it I have to downsize them even more to post them. It was very late in the afternoon in those pics and the first onoe. The morning pics, he was much closer and in better light.

Your morning photos show excellent detail, but catching 3 nice bucks(not to mention 1 > 170) walking in makes for a great, unique shot, and I like it more. Given the distance and time of day, this looks really good. Definitely good enough for a coffee table book or hanging on the wall.
I was able to ditch Hughes Net a couple of years ago, so I know exactly what you mean.

Thanks dude.

You're welcome. I first spotted those bucks at over 600 yards out just before sundown that evening and they were heading toward the blind I was in. Here are pics of those 3 bucks later that same afternoon right before dark. They were joined by another buck that came in from a different direction. It was getting really late and did not see him slip in due to taking pics of the others. I guessed there were 3 bucks over 165-170 that evening at that blind. Later on I know that all 3 were over 170 with two probably 180 or better. Very special day and wished I had had more light.

So what was he?

I did not ask them about the age but I know he was at least 7. He had broken off the G5 on the right beam and part of the left browtine. So he still grossed right at 176 with what he had left. So he was crowding 180 or maybe a bit just over.
