I have been watching this 12 point for 3 years now, now he shows up with a broke leg. Will this affect his horns for next year, better question will he SURVIVE until next years deer season? He has been a regular at the feeder every year until this year but he did start showing up the last two weeks every evening! What is yalls thoughts on if he will survive and be affected by this injury?

Would not surprise me if he survives but will probably affect his rack next year if he does

He will live. He probably will never look the same again. Quite a few years ago my son shot an Axis buck with messed up antlers. He kind of limped with his back leg. When we butchered him we found that some time in his life he broke the big bone in one of his back legs. The bone slid past the where it broke and grew back together. So one back leg was about 3" shorter than the other. Animals are tuff.

Deer can do pretty well with three legs if nothing else goes wrong. They are more susceptible to predation but will often survive. I would count on it having an effect on the right side of his rack next year.

I have a buck with a broken rear hoof around the ankle and it didn't affect his rack this year. Depends on where the break is would be my guess and how well he can avoid predators.

He will survive, but I would be willing to bet that his right antler will show some level of deformity in the coming years.

That could be a good thing but could swing the other way as well

Usually not a good thing from what I have seen through the years...

X-rays showed it was broken? He may have had a run in with some barb wire.
I have one with a similar injury. Watched him all season, leg healed up and he is going fine.
