Not too shabby of a buck. Just wish that kicker was dropping due south off the main beam instead of the G2. Oh well, he will probably get dead this year either way.

Given where the beam appears in the second picture, it looks like a kicker off his G2 and it just happens to point down. Not what is usually considered a 'drop' tine.



Oh, and you need to whack that 6pt.

Nice looking deer! Have two 6 points showing up just like that one. Trying to decide if they warrant fillings or not?!?!

Good luck getting him.


Take Care,
Bub

Just a kicker if you ask me, adds character though up

Really? Whack that young 6pt? Interesting.... grin
Yes this is the same buck. First pic is 2017. Second pic is 2018. Almost exactly a year apart and standing at the same location at the same feeder. This buck comes to the house and I have seen him in person to know it is the same buck. You know how I like to cull but sometimes you are forced to let a deer walk due to lack of tags or not legal in an AR county. History of a buck is important when culling.

He certainly bears watching. He looks older than the other 6 you used for comparison. up

He does look older but it is the same buck just one year older this year. He has some knicks in an ear that are in the same location in both years. You know how it is when you see a buck and recognize him by his facial features or colors or the way he walks instantly. He is like that when he walked out in June way before he had enough growth to see his antlers. He has put on a lot of weight since late July. I thought he could be a 3 yr old last year during the season when I saw him. He was heavier and thicker bodied in November than in that summer 2017 pic. When I get still photos with my camera this fall it will be easier to compare him to last years stills to verify it is him.

Drop tines come off the main beam. That's a a nice kicker on his right G2.

Nice buck Andy! Cool rack that'll look great on the wall whatever you call it up


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
