We have a hog trap set out and checked it this morning. Had a yearling buck caught in the trap. He had to have crawled in to get himself caught. Anyway, back to my question. He knocked both of his antlers off at the bases. One looks like it was pretty close to dropping but the other one has a pretty large bone spur attached to it. Will it grow back normal or deformed. We opened the gate and he ran out across the 40 acre wheat field and jumped the fence on the far side. He wasn't in the trap more than 6-8 hours at the very most.

There is a deer breeder here that I know. Each year they dart and cut the horns with a battery sawzall about 3 inches from the head. He said every year they grow back better....


Thanks - Capt. Craig

He should be okay.
