What do the experts say? Is this the same buck? I believe so, have seen him last 3 years. What do you guys think on age and score. This deer is central Texas. Fredericksburg area. First 4 pics are from 2018. Last 4 pics are from this wknd.

Could very well be, lots of similarities, 4-5 yo and around 125-130" is what I think.

Maybe not the same buck based on white patches on throat and head. Hard to say unless you have the same positioning pic at the same time year over year. Either way, a good looking Hill Country buck.

I love that area up there around Willow City. One of the biggest bucks I've ever seen live on the hoof was on Willow City Loop.


Looks to be the same, or maybe a close relative. I've got two bucks on camera that are almost identical, but one is a year or two older. Makes me think one is the daddy or maybe a full brother.

I think it is 2 separate deer.

gettting feed back on this forum is exactly what i needed. I hunt with some guys who could care less about history on a buck. they just shoot the 1st good looking 3 yr old (to each his own).

Until you guys said it appeared to be 2 seperate bucks i never noticed the difference in the main frame of the 2 bucks. The 8 from this year seems to have main beams and tines that fold out before going up. Obvious difference from the other 8. Was able to watch this guy all of opening wknd. I love just seeing good deer
