I just got on a new deer lease in Stephens County and had time to put up my feeders and trails cams two weeks ago. Just checked the trail cams and this one ragged buck is all over both of my feeders. Anyone seen a buck like this before? It seems like there is a lot of young bucks and the upper age class seems nonexistent. Would you cull this buck with the age structure like it is?

Looks like a "stag" or "cactus buck". Caused by a lack of testosterone. If you get one on the ground, he will have underdeveloped huevos. They will usually stay in velvet all year, don't breed, and just hang around and get fat. Great eating.

Hard to tell if that is a cactus buck or not because he is so young, could just be a yearling. I would never cull that deer...imagine in a couple years he could have a really cool rack with double brows.

Yup, weird deer.
I have a yearling that looks backwards, his brow tines stick straight out the back. I need to get a picture.

It would be my guess that is his momma, she'd get the first bullet then I'd move on to him
