My guess would be wapiti (American elk)cervus canadensis. Red stag tend to start having multiple points coming off of the spear point (4th point) after a few years of age.



When red stags grow up, they can have some really massive antlers.

Iíd say Red deer but from genetics in Spain or Argentina. The red deer there have that shape, the ones in New Zealand have the mass and huge crowns. Hard to tell I wouldnt be surprised if it was elk, cross or red deer. Really just have to know where the animal came from. Iíve seen crosses with elk bodies and little sika looking racks and Iíve seen sika bodies and huge red deer racks. Cool rack though.

I raise Red Deer, and this could very well be an Elk/Red cross as they will definitely do that. But my final guess is a Red Deer who is just lacking true crowns and mass.

Roosevelt elk tend to crown more then the others, but all types of elk can crown. My guess is that it's a red deer. This looks like a fair to average red deer rack.
