I took the pic last year nov 18, and the second pic is a video capture in low light so quality is low. I went back and found pic where i got them in the same position to compare side by side, but what do you think? Same deer?

The very distinct white patch tells me it is. My son pointed out what appeass to be a second white patch in the firs tpic but it could be sun reflection too, he had some white patches in areas that appeared to be sun glare rather than true white.

Not same deer. Darker deer does not have mini brow tine on right side.

I would definitely say the video of the older deer is jot quality enpugh to see that small brow if it is present or not. Difference in a daytime morning picture from 30 yards and a post sunset video at 55 yards. Males a difference in quality for sure

I’m confused which pic is which. Hard to tell with poor pics like that. Appears one deers beam turns up more than others. Nice bucks for sure.

The first pic and third pic are same deer, and the second pic and fourth pic are same deer.

Crappy pics as said, it was a video capture after sunset for the second and fourth and daytime sunny pic for first and third from last year.

Quote honestly i am shocked you all think its different deer. If you take the faces from the third and fourth pics, they are near identical. Antlers don’t turn upward as much as inward for both, but angle of the head makes them look a little more upward. I have pics from last year of head down and this year vid with head up to show that inward turn

Again, not the best pics, but shows the turn is similar just bigger this year.

Ignoring antlers - their throat patches, even if you ignore the double patch which is there IMO, are noticeably different. The first bucks patch is very short on each end with rounded edges and a round bottom. The second bucks is longer, with squared edges and bottom.

Good job on the throat patches, AC.
Seems to not be his first rodeo.

Discounting antlers: The deer in the first and third picture is older than the deer in the second and fourth picture. The first deer is long in the body. His frame is fully filled out. The blown up neck proportionally matches the heavy body. That gives him the short leaded appearance of a deer that is probably 6 1/2 years old. The second deer is a short body. His frame is not as filled out making his legs look longer. His neck comes in higher. He is not as old as the first deer.

You are absolutely correct. The throat patches are different. As you described, in the1st and 3rd pics the throat patch is rounded on the left and right edges. The buck in the 2nd and 4th pics has squared edges.
In regard to the brow tine, you can’t really tell if the buck in the 2nd and 4th has another small brow tine.
