A buddy got this odd little buck with his muzzleloader. He didn't realize it was a buck until he walked up to it. The side the tag is on has 3 points, longest about 2". The other side has 2 points about an 1.5". Wonder what this would have grown into? Cactus rack maybe?

That is odd. Would have been pretty cool to see what would have been huh. Maybe he would have been a huge narely looking buck or he may have been a small goofy racked buck his entire life. We will never know but we can use our imagination :)

Interesting. My theory is it was born REALLY late and didn't fully develop it's pedicles before winter... So the following year (this year), instead of a nice forkhorn or 6pt basket he grows a set of mongoloids. Pedicles are the "foundation" of antlers... Poor foundation = poor antlers.

Or... just plain shitty genetics. Hard to say, really.
