      Half rack? Dropped or broke?

      On my phone he looks like a huge crotch horn, can’t make out a brow tine. If so that wouldn’t be a legal buck here which is crazy to me.

        I have some thoughts about box blinds I’m planning on starting a thread about, I just haven’t put it all together yet. I’m hoping to get out one last time on Saturday so I’ll probably wait until after that.

          Half rack, broke just above skull. Yes only 2 points.
          The bow shop in town has a certified P&Y 6pt.

            I've got a one sided rack at home. The left main beam is about 4 inches long and the main beam and G1 were broken off just above the fork. He would have been a nice buck otherwise.
            Nice buck dewman! Congrats!

                Still cool and a very nice deer.


                Shot one similar ten years or so ago, should have been a decent eight if he was symmetrical. The shot was only about 40 yards but I had to pick an opening and wait on him, he was crossing from my left to right and I never noticed his left side. As I approached him I noticed his head was laying flat exactly like in your picture, had me wondering “what the heck” at first. Still would have shot him even if I’d noticed beforehand.

                  The one in the picture I posted appears to have broke after velvet shed, makes me wonder how hard of a hit it took to break that sucker……

                    I’ve had to check that pic out a couple times now Dewman, he’s pretty wild. Any guess on age? Doesn’t appear old to me but maybe the rack was going the other way. Long main beam regardless.

                    Thanks for posting that.

                      No guess on age. It's raining on and off all day so gut and haul to processor as quick as possible.
                      Just saw a trail cam pic of yet another small buck at 6:30 this morning. Deer are sure moving. If they weren't there was a pretty fox that came through I would have been tempted to take. IMG_2678.jpg

                        All I saw was a spike buck with long tines. He fed across the food plot, in easy bow shot distance. Our club minimum is 4 points total for members, 6 points for guests - eastern style of counting antler points.

                        I didn't mind the box blind yesterday because of occasional showers. Was planning to make a shot through both shoulders if the right deer came along. The undergrowth is thick in that part of the property and the plan was to minimize tracking

                          Ok. Correction. The processor is my pards cousin. He dropped off the bullet and the horn this morning at his house on his way in and guess what. It does have a brow tine! I need some rest.

                            Wanna hear sump'in weird?

                            The one antlered buck I have .... is missing his "LEFT" antler!
                            Is that a 🤯 or simply a 🤔?

                            fitch270, breaking an antler AIN'T easy! LOL!
                            I broke a set of spikes off a deer I had killed. I was surprised at the effort required to break even a spindly spike! ....and that was a 🤯!

                              Continuing the one horn theme. Youth season 2006. Both daughters shot one horned deer. One left side broken off, one right side broken. We refer to them as the "Twix" bucks. If you seen the commercials you get it. IMG_2683.jpg

                                Years ago I shot a 5-1/2 year old buck at the end of the season. He was thin and worn out from the rut and both antlers fell off when I started to drag him. The meat wasn't fit to eat when I got it back from the processor. I think that was a very sick buck.
