Is this the same Buck?

The claw is an obvious similarity. But take a closer look at the blading of the drivers side G2.

If this is indeed the same buck. What age do you think he is now? I remember posting about this buck before, and people thought he was 2.5 in 2011. I dont know about that. I think the pictures of him in 2012, he looks more like 4.5. Does that make him 6.5+ or older now in 2014? Do you think this buck had some SERIOUS decline after 2 extremely harsh winters in 2012 and 2013?

Sure looks like it could be the same buck Ed. If it is he's a senior citizen. I wish we could get old bucks like that, regardless of score.

Hard to say but I'd guess yes it the same. I'm not much at aging but I'd say 4.5 or 5.5. Got to love that tine lenght.

I would say pretty good chance with last yrs harsh winter. Boy he lost allot of inches if so ehh

When I got the most recent pick of him, as an apparent 7 point, at first I didn't think it could be the same buck. No way could have he declined that far, he should be a monster by now if he is still alive. It seemed impossible, but a closer look, I really think it is him. My neighbor passed him yesterday at 23 yards with his bow, trying to do the right thing as he thought he was a youngin after seeing my picture and on the hoof. He is now kicking himself and we both think he is indeed a senior citizen and a true trophy.

I'd say it's him and he's a ragged old man. Awesome deer to see since so few make it that far.

I know we had 90" 4.5 year olds last year, and besides the stud the ole lady got I have yet to see a buck over 130". Maybe the few out there are older than it appears.
