#355662 It's possible. The tips of his brow tines curve backwards slightly in both videos, I don't recall seeing that in very many of my buck videos but I will have to pay more attention in the future. However I have one buck in the area with a forked brow tine in continuous years. That seems to be an identifier also.

#355663 Good eye, its sure possible. The brow tines are the giveaway. Obviously the '12 video is a young buck with a nice rack and the current video is a large mature deer. Six years of growth is very possible. Now, since you were digging in your archives to find the '12 video, are their additional videos in between?

#355664 I think it's likelier that it's from similar genes. a lot of people think that deer only get to 6-7 years old. this guy would be 6 years older than that first video, which he's probably 3-4 in. that would make him 10 years old or so. I would expect more mass in a 10 year old deer.
