    two antlers, one abnormal point, possible. If it is at least one inch long and is longer than it is wide. hard to tell from photo.

    I've shot two of them that look like this out of Kotzebue if I remember I'll post a picture of the skull when I get home. When I caped it out the knot on the head was all bone and had no skin covering it just a thin black layer that melted when tanned

    It doesn't look like velvet to me, tho I have seen true "unicorn" antler points on a couple of whitetail deer. This could be antler, but only time will tell. I too have killed a bull with a bone protrusion between his eyes that I believe was the result of injury.

    i've shot a unicorn bull, but that looks like a summer coat over the the natural ridge of the skull to me. Really short summer coats make this look pronounced on some bulls.

    The unicorn projections are often resulting from injury. Mine took a browtine to the skull cap and the leverage cracked his eye socket all the way through the orbital bone structure. A malformed and sharp antler grew from the healing fracture.
