Can killed this deer last night. The right eye was an open wound. The fur around the antlers is rubbed off and it appears that he did not drop his antlers this last year. I'd been seeing this deer on my trail cameras for the last two years. I went back to Oct of 2013 and found the two and the top of the page (date is off). Can someone tell me what this is or if they have ever seen anything like it?
It looks like you're right about him dropping his antlers upon closer inspection. This is the same deer. The later trail camera pictures of him a couple days later have the large growth knocked off. The pictures from the side look the same. I'll post more pictures.
