Default Extreme Roman nose buck?

I have seen older bucks develop a Roman nose before but not like this one. His teeth showed 8+ yrs old. Almost looks like it could be some kind of skeletal defect. Pics really don't do it justice. Anyone seen this before.

One of two things:

1. He broke it somehow. That's how it healed.
2. Sometimes, they get Calcium build ups there. I've got a Roman nosed buck that had this.

You'll know when you take all the skin and meat off the head.

Side Note: Look at those front knee joints. I assume you photo-shopped his cane/walker out of the picture?

This is a 6.5 yr old 200 pounder I killed at our west Texas lease...... Taxidermist said he had broken his fight possibly a couple of times.

I shot a doe that looked like that last year. I'm assuming they broke it and thats how it healed up.

What did his knees look like? We have one on camera that we believe is very old with an obvious Roman nose like yours and his knees look like there's a tennis ball under the skin. Looks like an old man limping around as he walks. His antlers have really gone down hill this year, only a 10"+/- spread 6pt but pretty good mass. Last year he had a bunch of non-typical points but broke everything off except 2stumps by November 1.

Isn't the cause of a "roman nose" fighting, no matter how old the deer is. Constant battering in a fight.....be careful Rhonda Rousey need to block those punches and kicks to the nose.

The old deer I killed this year (named "old man") had a very unique nose also. I watched him from 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 and it was always like this so I am not sure what happened to it.

There is a doe at my lease that looks a lot like that. Nothing wrong with her, just looks different than all the other kids.

Default Extreme Roman nose buck?

My oldest boy shot a small buck last year that had a funny looking nose. After I had a European done for him you can see the bone structure of his nose is weird and missing pieces.



Fixed:

I think this one ran into a wall before I shot him. I'm looking forward to seeing the euro on this one.

Not sure how this little guy made it as long as he did. Fella that shot him nicknamed him "Potato".
