Who's Your Daddy?
Quit an interesting Blacktal. Looks like a ram.
Funky lookin deer! Does he have to be a full curl to be legal?!
If that is California then I think it's Not Legal!
At least when I lived there, spikes were not legal to shoot! Even full curl spikes!
Very Cool Deer! He looks very healthy, I wonder what causes that???? Thanks for sharing!
I think he's got a point on his left side near his ear base. It's a Blacktail.
It's evolution. Some deer have figured out if they hide their antlers they won't get shot.
Pretty wild.... how do ya count the rings on that????
I wonder if Viagra would straighten them out?
Definitely legal. He's got a tine on at least the left antler, possibly the right as well.
Neat looking blacktail, thanks for sharing...
It would surprise me if that buck was legal considering the actual wording of the regulation.
CCR T14-351. Forked-Horn Buck, Antlerless and Either-Sex Deer Defined. (a) Forked-Horn Buck Defined. For the purpose of these regulations a forked-horn buck is defined as a male deer having a branched antler on either side with the branch in the upper two-thirds of the antler. Eyeguards or other bony projections on the lower one-third of the antler shall not be considered as points or branches.
Maybe it's a transgender deer
Very cool, he is still growing so no telling what else he will grow. Forrest
Hard to tell which are the main beams... Is the bottoms drop tines or the main beam, or is the tops tines or the main beam... Wouldn't worry about legal or not, still a lot of growing to do at this time of year... My guess this characteristic was due to damage or injury during early growth... Looks like he ran into something in during early stage of development... Would be nice to see what he develops into...
Sometimes it's better to ask forgiveness than permission.... I've been married a LONG time.....
I'd drop a sting on that freak in a second........ but dat's juss me......
