Yes many of the pics will be blurry because I was using the video camera......

Hey great shots. I may be wrong, it looks to me that the bucks in photo 2 are different as well as photo 3. Antler mass is different which says you may have more bucks to judge. Anyway, you have at least two great bucks and some great potential for this fall. I think the bucks range from 2.5 to 5.5 in age.

I do agree that the bucks look different......but I have seen them so many times.....I am 99.8% sure that they are the same deer.....:photo:

Great pics ETD thanks for posting them. I agree with you on bucks 1 and 3, IMHO # 2 is 3.5. He has nice antler growth but he seems a little small in the antler and muscle mass for a 4.5, reguardless those are some nice deer. It's a shame you don't have any better pics of #1 I bet his body definition would be very telling.

Look at the differences between these 2 pics..
ETD, you guessed this one at "2nd Buck..8 point...I'm gonna say 4 1/2"

I think it's only 2 1/2 possibly a 3 1/2 here's why, look at the Deers chest area, the first deer is quite narrow looking from a frontal view
the next pic shows a much wider more defined chest indicating a more mature buck which you guessed at
"3rd and final Buck....10 point....I'm gonna say 4 1/2.. and I agree with you on this one.
It's hard to tell from a pic anyway because the pictures quality is always a factor too.... Good Luck...
