I thought the antler bud had to be damaged.

There are lots of factors but injuries are one.

UNEVEN RACKS

Injuries to the body can profoundly affect antler size and shape. Damage to one side of a buck's body can cause antler deformity on the opposite side. This phenomenon is called a contra lateral effect. A buck that has lost its left hind leg, for example, will tend to grow a shorter antler on its right side.

This. Some old lady has it named and it visits her for food every day. Shoot that little buck, and the lady will lose the will to live from the deer not coming around any more, and the old lady will just die. Do you want to kill an old lady with your -06?

A deer can do some serious damage to you. It's likely that one was a pet at some point, but they can seriously kill somebody.
Link Posted: 10/5/2014 3:43:41 PM EST
Dude! Choke it to death for the ultimate kill!
Link Posted: 10/5/2014 3:46:18 PM EST
That buck ain't wild & it won't be around long acting like that.

Yep.
My Grandmother in law had one.
He got mad at me in the pen one day and I had to grab his antlers. to get out.

The kicked off some hunters and they called the state on her.
They sent out some GWs. and they shot it with a dart and killed it.

What the heck kind of deer has antlers like that and still only comes up to your waist?

Need a Brazzers logo.

wtf no beer? No plate, knife, fork or napkin and you forgot the re load?

My dad had a coworker that took his family on vacation to Wyoming back in the early '70s. They loaded up the station wagon (remember those?), and went on their way.

This was back in the days when motels were scarce as more people took to the road in Summer, so folks back then tended to eat sammiches on the side of the road from a cooler, rather than waste time at a diner for lunch, and risk not finding a motel with any rooms in the early evening and end up driving until 0400 in the morning.

So Len pulled over on the side of the road somewhere east of Rawlings, and as he and his family ate, an antelope buck cautiously approached the station wagon with the humans eating out of the back of it. They somehow coaxed it to approach them closer and closer, and it began to eat out of Len's hand! Perfectly tame (or seemingly so). His kids had a blast with that buck hanging out with them and they were able to pet it..

Len told us he never hunted antelope after that.

Most people think Deer are Giants. Including most Hunters.
Look up how tall an average Whitetail Deer is at the back.
I bet it will surprise you!

Oh, and that Deer looks to be 1.5 years old by the size of the rack.
That would be his first, for you that don't know.

Take him for a walk in the wood in a month when the rut is on best decoy you could ask for

You should have kicked the deer so he knows to associate humans with bad things. That deer won't survive deer season.

Underdone. No sear.

No knife, fork or beverage.

Link Posted: 10/5/2014 5:14:51 PM EST
They get really stupid around the rut, especially when they are habituated to begin with. We've tied scarfs on them around the ski areas where I used to be the Environmental Resource Manager for the company. We've pulled up to them and had them stick their noses in our trucks.

If a deer ever got that close to me, I'd go ISIS on it and slash its throat.

Assuming I had a valid deer tag, and it was deer season.

NO fan of trendy GD phrases, however, keep it up an you better put pepper on your meat.

You cant age a deer by the rack. Deer looks to be 2.5yo to me.

Size depends on the subspecies. Deer here, are MUCH bigger.

Why has that deer not moved its body position in between those two photos. It is standing exactly the same in both pics. Could it be stuffed by any chance?

Damn, camera 'guy' sounds like the one who the deer should have been after.
Wish I would have taken 'volume advice', was just hoping the giggling, turned horking, would have turned coronary.

Now that you mention it...



I'd have that deer on the dinner table if it were me, but maybe I'm just insensitive.
Link Posted: 10/5/2014 5:52:35 PM EST
My buddy had a doe at his cabin that was like that. They eventually put a collar on it so nobody would shoot it.

That was a pet, someone must be looking for it.

I whistle and they come running from all directions. I can't touch them but they will come within a foot of me. I have had 25 come running from out of the woods at the most.



At my previous home I had a buck that would sleep beside my shed. I'd thrown sticks at him when he started eating my garden.
