Interesting Looking Buck

Reply
I planted my summer food plots back in early May with Cow Peas and Soy Beans. It didn’t take long and the deer started hitting the plots hard. These summer plots are great ways to keep track of the Does and when they drop their fawns along with the bucks and how they are developing their head gear. I was surprised to get this odd looking buck on camera and figure he damaged his left anther before growth started. Also noticed a higher level of ticks on the deer this year compared to previous years, I assume due to the mild winter. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Nice pics. That buck is going to have his left antler growing under his chin! Hope you get him this fall.

Update on a buck we call \'Nut Sack\' with 2 more months of growth.

I wish we knew the story on what happened to cause the abnormal left side. Doesn’t appear to be any obvious physical marks. Maybe damage to the pedicle as he shed in the spring.

This Saturday afternoon 'Nut Sack' was taken. He started roaming from his home range and we started getting him on camera all over the place. The pre-rut done him in.

beauxnarreaux, He had a compound fracture to his right rear leg about 4 inches from the hoof. It had completely healed up and has a twist to it. If you look close you can see it in the group picture.
