First pic is last year and second pic is this year. Do y’all think it’s the same deer? Horns look very similar and his front toes look a little long in both pictures ( maybe I’m making that up lol). How old do y’all think he is.
Hard to say if it is the same buck or not but I'm leaning to it not being the same. Pic from last year his G3s lean forward and his beam looks straight. PIc from this year his G3 goes upward more and the beam droops downward after the 3. The deer this year is a Moose and certainly mature and will make you some great dried sausage! lol
High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!
I am leaning towards it being the same buck from only those 2 pics. The age fits, the shape of the antlers fits and the irregular shape of the tines/beams fits. IME as bucks age their antlers get wavy or irregular looking IME. More pics from last year and this year at various angles would help.
