    That deer needs to go!!!!! If you don't get rid of him soon you will see more and more of that kind soon. Genetics will spread like a disease.

    Hit by car
    Actually he has been hit by a car or something. The right front leg is really messed up and there are scars all over the r side of his body. I have seen several deer taken that were hurt on one side of the body and the antler on the opposite side grew weird. He walks on 3 legs. But I will probalby take him if the chance arises.

    Yeah, I shot a 7 pointer last year that had been hit. He couldn't bend his back legs and one of his antlers grew weird.

    Genetics don't have anything to do with that buck's horns if he's injured. Injury to right side of body has showed up the next year on left antler. Good chance he'll have non-typical rack the rest of his days. I'd take him given the chance, but he could get bigger and throw off an even stranger rack next year.

    Dan is correct...don't shoot this deer just because hes weird...might be something special in a year or 2. I once seen a deer killed that had a similar rack...the culprit?...6 inches of aluminum shaft and a wasp broadhead in the hind quarter.

    Think about it.
    Hey guys, not trying to start an arguement here but just reading what has been posted leaves me pondering? If the deer was hit on the right side then why are the right side antlers uniform...hmm. When I look closely and only jtr can really know, I see deformaties. All I am saying is that if you have a multitude or large supply of does and he is inbred then you will see more like that. If you have seen him for a couple of years like that or have previous pics that show him at a younger age and his rack was uniform or similar on both sides then I will agree but as for what I see I think he was inbred. I hope I am wrong and he comes back strong! Good luck this year and hope you bag several nice ones.

    When a deer is injured it effects the antler growth. Most of the time if a deer is injured on its left leg or left side of the body the opposite antler grows deformed. If he heals he could grow normal antlers next year.

    I had a buck I shot one year that was a three year old with a screwed up rack. His right front knee was bent back and locked up like this deer only the knee was the size of a softball. Poor deer came hobbling in and looked under norished. After I shot him I showed him to the farmer and he said this buck got hit by a car when it was a fawn but, he would still see it every year. I think the other bucks were taking advantage of him and anyway he ate good!
    Thought I was doing a good thing!

    Hundreds of pics
    All I can say is I have hundreds of pics of this deer from all angles and he is gimped up pretty bad. I don't know if he can breed. His right leg is frozen across the front of his body. There is one thing for sure though. He loves the corn. He comes to it sometimes 7-8 times in 24 hrs. And he'll stay there up to 30 min at the time. Guess he appreciates the easy meal.
