    Is it possible to have a negative tip to tip spread when scoring a deer? Hah.

      I have a mount where they are pointed at each other and a few inches apart. I was told they get that way by pushing against a tree when they are developing. In Mich. they called them paddle horns.

          I shot a nice 6 pointer about 40 years ago that the tines touched. I called my circle rack. This high set rack looked like a halo. I have it around somewhere.

            He's just giving his buddy a set of goalposts to finger-kick one of those paper footballs through. Ah, those boring study-halls of long ago .....

              I killed a buck a few years ago that had antler tips less than a inch apart. He was a 3.5 year old.

                Matt, We played that in high school in the cafeteria after lunch. Good memories. thanks.
                In grammar school the boys played bean bag football during our lunch hour in the blocked off street. The school put up road barriers at each end of the street for safety.

                    What would happen in the future, if the antlers grew on the same impact direction. Would the velvet slide to the side, or just stopped there and get a fatter antler on both sides??

                      I don't know. I've never seen antler points actually touch. I shot this one because he was so ugly, but he tasted just fine.

                        Unusual but not unheard of either,I have seen thousands of bucks come through check points and weigh stations ,some are just hard to describe,my best recollection of a strange rack was one that the main beam turned upwards and the tines projected forward,kinda backwards best description. Bowkill Yellowbank WMA K.y I wouldn't, know how he woulda scored his mass was 150 maybe

                              156 is an awesome buck.
