    What are the chances of a buck with a drop tine one year that he will have a drop tine the next years. Do you think that it will just be on the same side but not with the same configuration or what? We had a buck last year with a down drop tine and this year we have one with the drop on the same side but facing upward? What do you think?

    It depends. Some drop tines are caused by damage while the deer is still in velvet. If it was not causes by damage, there is a good chance that something simular will be grown the next year.

      Tough to say for sure. In my admittedly somewhat limited experience, (true drop tine deer are very unusual in my part of the country) genetic drops, those not caused by injury, will usually repeat from year to year, and will generally keep pretty much the same shape and placement.
