Yes. My management questions were answered.

How many points?....likely nine...given the kicker is over an inch.

What was the cause of the funky antler?....likely fighting or something else, not sickness.

Might he have been better next year?...maybe yes.

Thank yall.

Thank you but no thank you. Time and the broadhead were doing their job. I was allowing the broadhead to do its. I was simply documenting to learn from the situation.

Go away. Thank you!

Didn't have 4 arrows did you?

Wounding stuff happens. i don't understand how posting a picture of a suffering deer that looks like a pincushion is necessary for your question to be answered.

6 arrows. 3 knives. 9 mm.

Apparently you wouldve preferred I continue to perforate my quarry and not be patient. Thank you but no thank you. You may do what you will to your meat.

Patience is a virtue. Thank you for helping temper mine.

Take your jackassery elsewhere.

I know this isn't the deer you were thinking it was. I can absolutely see that misidentification happening. In any case, it will all be ok. Just chalk it up as a lesson learned on being g 100% sure that you've got your deer ID'd. I've made the same "mistake" twice myself. It's a heart breaker when you walk up on the deer and realize it wasn't what you had originally thought. There's always next season. Congrats on the kill.

You're the one who shot a deer with a lot of potential before properly identifying it, and then posted a picture of your poor (three) shot placement on a deer that was still alive on a thread where you asked for help to count to 10. I don't think you have much room to talk.

Use as many arrows as it takes man. I applaud you for trying to speed the death process and ease his pain. Good shots or not you made your best effort. Congrats on your kill!! I will never understand why it bothers some people, what deer others shoot. If your not on the same lease, who gives a flip.

It was from an injury, just found out this is my neighbor today. I had several pics of him preseason. It wasn't broken off from fighting.

That is awesome. I love a big bodied deer that fills the freezer with delicious vension. To me that is a trophy regardless of rack size. I get the trophy rack but when you have a 2 yr measuring 155 and has about 55lbs of meat on him I just dont get it.

Congrats.

Looks to me like he damaged it in velvet, Maybe broke off main beam right past the g2.

IF you asking because it is an AR county then no it is not an un branched antler.

He probably had an injury to his body on the side opposite the messed up antler. I have seen that many times. I could be genetic also. If you would have know he had spike blood you should have let him go and he would have been a 170" deer next year. LOL!

Howdy Houston! I was wondering when you might come scatting back along....I see you! You saw the fat kid before I took the photo down...yours is still up.


Ive checked several times about the weight...I still find it hard to believe....however when the protein has been great this year...a neighbor feeding probably most the year....edge of east tx farm land...edge of hill country swoll with non-hunting elderly folk thick as theives...on edge of 22.8 square miles of unhunted city lands...and the local feed supplier tosses broken feed bags along the same river I hunt...well...Ill check my scale.

My second archery deer.[/QUOTE]

I think some of you giving such a hard time may have missed this.... Yes, some mistakes have been made in identifying the deer and understanding what a spike is, but if he had a tag in his pocket for a buck, and no restrictions from landowner or lease mates that he could only hunt a doe, I really don't see the problem. He shot a legal, big deer.

Agree. Looks like he knocked the heck out of it in velvet & changed the trajectory of growth. May or may not have been normal next year. Doesn't really matter now. He does have a branched antler on both sides.

Interesting read.

I'd like to hear more about the buck from last year myself. The one you mounted and knifed whilst being stabbed by an antler. That sounds like an interesting story.

Sample #2 of local genetics and environ. Both critters were harvested, this year, within 1/4 mile of each other.

Jshouse...thank you, but here is not appropriate. The Management Gurus wouldnt be happy. Not a big deal. PM me.
