    I found this young buck dead a couple of weeks back, but waited until the buzzards did their thing to recover it. There were signs of a fight in the area, so I suspect it was done in by another buck, but really don't know for certain. Never seen one like this before; I'd love to know what caused it.

    Genetics, injury, screw wroms, hard to say for certain but it happens. Inbreeding is becoming an issue here. Make a great skull to hang up though.

    Real nice buck tommy... I also like the unusual stuff, cause they are really a one of a kind deer. It was probably caused due to an injury of some sort, but would look really cool in a European mount.

    I think it's far more likely to be from an injury rather than genetics. I have a similar one mounted that had lost a foot, probably to a hay mower when it was a fawn.
