    I would guess that he seriously injured the antler at the beginning stages of growth causing the bone to harden and stopping all further growth. Same thing will happen to growth plates in humans if they are damaged at an early age before fully mature.

    That's going to be awkward when he gets big. Bet he'll have a pretty beefcake neck, though.

    "Spike" means antlers of a bull moose with only one tine on at least one side; male calves are not spike bulls.

    A point or tine is an antler projection at least one inch long, and longer than it is wide, with the width measured at least one inch from the tip.

    Legal bull moose in areas with a spike-fork restriction.

    A spike-fork bull is legal if it has one antler on either side that is a SPIKE (1 point), or a FORK (2 points). The antler on the other side can be any configuration."

    It's dislodged at the pedicle.

    I'm not a bio but from my reading the short odds point to sharp impact. Considering it's a young moose I would venture that he was startled, then bolted or yanked his head around and smacked a tree. If he's limping or nursing some other injury (curiously it would be on the right side of his body) that could affect antler growth but typically what you see is a deformed antler, not one missing entirely.

    The other option is he was born with a defective pedicle and will never grow an antler on that side.
