Man I really think the nine points are different deer.
I know that they are different years, but usually from my experience the sweep of a deers main beams will remain fairly similar after year two. Also the coloration around nose and eyes looks very different.
Not being argumentative, just think you may gave a big one that you dont have on camera yet.
After looking closer I think your right. The one last year has the little crab claw on the main beam on his right side. The other 9 has it on the left. Just wish I could see either one of them while sitting in the stand. Hopefully it’s soon cause I only have two more weeks on this property cause it’s sold.
