Muley ear notches

Saw these two young bucks in the neighborhood today, and was curious that they both have ear notches. The best reason I've heard so far is that the bucks do a little scrapping, and ears take a bit of a beating. The notches are not research-related. I'm still open to other theories if anyone has ideas.

That's what I've always heard they were--I've seen such notches on White-Tailed bucks here in the Southeast, too.....L.B.
