He also had a 5-6" drop tine growing from his left base which he has broken off.

Open to any other theories???
Ouch!!!
Yep, either fighting or they get hung up in something and freak out. They break the antler out with a big chunk of pedicle attached to it. They will usually always be abnormal on that side from then on. I see it a lot.
And congrats on that beautiful Mexico buck.
