    Default My weird buck

    I shot this buck yesterday. Pretty interesting antler formation, I think he was trying to be a goat,

    I think he is pretty old actually. Checked out his teeth and he is missing a couple and the rest are pretty worn down. Was the biggest bodied deer out of all the ones we have gotten so far although its hard to tell from the pictures.

    Did he have testicles? There are deer i have seen in Kodiak where the testicles don't descend and they are pretty much like a steer. I am curious if this buck was the same?

    Not many young deer would have all those nubbins growing up from the base.

    Yes, weird and strange.
    But good to see them preserved in your collection, as opposed to being lost forever as porcupine food, or whatever.

    Looks like a rare "Dall" buck. Hope the troopers don't see this as he is obviously NOT full curl!!
    Was he fat and healthy otherwise?

    I'd be interested in that as well. Often testicle injuries are the cause of antler deformities.

    Very interesting buck for sure. Thanks for sharing that!

    He seemed healthy. Good amount of fat on him.

    I've seen something similar in the past although not to that extent. It was caused by a buck still in velvet and still developing his antlers run under a big branch and hit both the antlers, pushing them back. They then grew that way. This is by far the coolest I've ever seen. Contrats.
