A nice discovery... two different deer!

This deer I've named "Shiner". I had been thinking that it was "Ace" but something about the arrangement of the antlers kept bothering me. Compare this deer and the one below.
If you look closely you can see the difference. Notice how the G4s on Ace slant inward. Also notice the slight difference in the left brow tines. Shiner at the top is four years old and Ace at the bottom is seven. I'm guessing Shiner is an offspring of one of the does I got from the Shiner ranch soon after I high fenced and was fathered by a buck on that ranch. Ace is a native that was two when the fence went up.
