Two nice bucks. Same Genetics??

Here is a picture of my wifes 2004 archery kill and another one of a local youngster from this year. In looking at the drop tines, do you guys think the deer from this year could be offspring or 2nd generation offspring from my wife's buck? Both bucks were killed within about 1.5 miles of each other 8 years apart.

Could be. Droptines are rare, let alone a split droptine.

Is he holding a piece of the split G-2 as the 04 buck has the same split (kicker) G-2 as his. Same pool!

Re: Two nice bucks. Same Genetics??

you have to think of how genetics work though. they both dont have the same parents. but yes if they were harvested near the same location, most likely they have crossed paths in the droptine genetics.

Probably coincidence. Bucks normally don't stay in the location they were born. Button bucks disperse to prevent inbreeding, sometimes ridiculous distances. The drop time is the only identical part of the rack, besides them both being freak beasts. My opinion.

What he said.

After 8 years, the possibility that these bucks have either the same mother or father (or even grandmother or grandfather) is very remote. Droptines occur everywhere, so it's much more likely that the genetics for the 2012 buck came from somewhere else.
