Definately unique. A trophy isn't always the one with the biggest antlers. One of the deer that I am the most proud of was a doe I shot my first year muzzleloader hunting. I was still hunting and got within about 10 yards of it. That was in 98, the year after the bad winter with all the winter killed deer.

Thanks to all. I almost didnt put that rack on it I was going to use a 10point I shot a few years ago. But the warden told me it would be a fake deer or something like that. So I did the retard deer as she put it.

Cool mount and a unique buck. I always wonder what happens to deer to make them get some weird racks.

I posted pic's in the Trail cam area of a 3 legged buck we had on one of my properties. He was alive very late into gun season. He had a unique rack and I'm hoping he makes it through so I can see what he looks like this year.

I always wonder what happens to deer to make them get some weird racks.

The abnormal antler growth is caused from Calcium deficiencies, usually caused by some kind of wound on the opposite side of the body or poor health.

I'm not sure what page the 3-legged buck you posted is on, but is the abnormal growth on the opposite side of the body?

I believe the reason is, is they have to put the calcium towards bone development, so if they get hit by a car or whatever they need to put that energy there instead of toward antler development. Why it happens on opposite sides I'm not exactly sure of.... I've heard it at one time but can't remember right now. I think it has something to do with how the body distributes the calcium and brain activity.....??????

But, uness I'm completly off my rocker, I'm pretty sure this is what causes abnormal antler development.

Sweet buck, btw! Very unique!

My 3 legged one is on page 13 of the trail cam pics. I have heard it's the opposite side of the body thing and yes he does show this.

I've also heard that an injury to the pedestal can cause some weird antler growth.

However, I shot a nice 10 pointer down in Missouri with a nasty gun shot wound in his right hind quarter. Both antlers looked the same.

I think the injury needs to occur prior to development for growth to be affected. I would assume this deer had already grown it's antlers for the year.

ON the goofy side of this buck there is actually a hole that goes through the base of the antler in to the skull I will see if I can take a decent pic of it

No the injury was completely healed over with fur so I assumed it was shot the prior season. Hard to tell.

    • Nah....walleyes would be hard-line Republicans;  conservative with little or no imagination, terrified of doing something new or different or pushing ahead with anything not tried before. Show me a 6-pound walleye and I'll show you Barry Goldwater with scales  or Ronald Reagan when he was not napping. PF is right, catching a walleye,  even a nice big fat one, is about as exciting as a naked tussle with Rosie O'Donnell or dragging a bag of seaweed into your boat. We used to catch some really big ones in MT and after a bit we learned that the big perch fought better and were way more tasty!  No kidding, those perch....12-15" were way better eating.  But then we were catching them from cold clear water. But if you are really new to fishing and don't possess a lot of skill by all means become a walleye fisherman-anybody can do it.
    • Well it's "Throw Down" time! For years I have kept a bag of sunflower seeds in the cup holder of my SUV to nibble on as I ride along. In the last few weeks since about the last weekend up north Deer hunting I would come in and think, man I really down some seeds, that was a pretty new bag? Then checking my oil one day noticed some empties under the hood!  Um, someone's having a party? Went to pick up my Deer at the butcher today and again found the new bag almost empty! Checked back seat floor and found a few sprinkles on the floor! That's it, don't mind the little guy along for a ride but don't touch my seeds! Thought about setting up the trail cam to plan some strategy, but just went with the blind two trap set front and back seat floor. Report when I get some results!
    • Read it again grasshopper, I never said any such thing.     Pence LOST jobs, Johnson gained jobs and the money didn't come out of revenue that was already being produced. Johnson's money came out of NEW tax revenue that would have never been earned if they didn't do the deal.   I don't know what that quote is you posted but I never said any of that.
    • Catching a walleye is about as exciting as reeling in a bath towel. Not sure how that justifies being an elitist. Bullheads put up a better fight.    I always considered walleyes to be the liberals of the fish world. 
    • When was the last time? 1835? That was the last time the national debt was paid off.     How would you know that? We've never taken a trillion dollars off the debt EVER.      
    • Lo, many years ago I tried something similar to deal with feral cats at a house that I was renting.   (next door neighbor fed them, and they would come in our garage or climb up under the hood of our cars.)   Covered a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil and wired it to one side of a 700 volt power transformer.  Other side was wired to a half open can of sardines insulated from the foil by a thin layer of plastic.   Primary went to line power.   No cat touched the sardines so long as the electricity was on (several days).   When I turned it off to see what would happen, they ate everything they could get out of the can in a short time.   I hope mice aren't as sensitive or smart. 
    • Pence is governor of Indiana.   Johnson was governor of New Mexico.   Why do you claim Johnson's deal was local, and Pence's was not?   Pence kept actual jobs, Johnson was chasing hypothetical jobs.   Pence benefited residents of his state.  Johnson benefited folks coming in from out of state...     
    • I would avoid one with a touch screen and stick with buttons.  You cannot work a touch screen with gloves on.  I guess it depends if you where gloves.  I have one of each and my Garmin with buttons is the one that gets used.
    • With any luck, we will get out of the debt issue with a period of moderate inflation, just like we did the last time.  5% inflation takes a trillion dollars a year off the debt.   Add 3-4 percent constant dollar growth, and in under a decade the ratio of debt to GDP is cut in half, even allowing for some deficits along the way.   Janet Yellen has already signaled she is willing and ready to let the economy run "hot", ie inflation exceeding the 2% target.     The trick, of course, is to pull it off without anything blowing up.     Now all that remains is to make it happen.
