Hello there, I found these two after a good rain protruding from the bank along the same creek in Travis county. They are both around 9" long and one appears to be older than the other. Thanks for the help

Can You separate them and take pictures from the sides and ends, straight on not from an oblique angle?

You might check the sizes and characteristics against some of the following pages.

 

If your photos are taken from the same perspective as the drawings in the link, it is easier to understand the shape of the bone.  ;)

That's how I've gone about it

The smaller bone belongs to something smaller

Maybe deer? 

I know a deer is not much smaller than a bison, but the bones are a lot thinner.

 

Best regards,

It appears to be a proximal radius.  Here is an equus radius for comparison:

I figured it was different from bison.  Harry's image above shows the diagnostic viewing angles.  Most of your images are from oblique angles that distort features more easily seen at perpendicular angles.  ;) 

 

Congrats on your finds.   :)
