So this yearling is a resident on my property, and I've never seen antlers configured like this. Do you think these are brow tines, or what should be his G-2s and no brows? Also look at the mass, much greater than any of the other yearlings I've got on camera.
At the risk of being “that guy”, it looks like small 1.5 year old 6pt with the typical spindly rack. The mass you refer to is just optical illusion due the deer being close to the camera. My guess is those antlers are maybe 2” circumference. I think brows appear more prominent due to the angle of photo. Just my 2 cents.
G1's in that configuration ..... however could be browless that young ..... nice 1.5 yr old, wait till he hits 3.5 or older and see what he is like .... even at 2.5 you will see what he is turning into

Brow tines X2. Racks like that on young bucks are quite common here in Illinois. And the best part is that our Governor hasn't found a way to tax them.......YET!!! ;-)
He’s just long-nosing himself to look bigger....
Kind of looks like the rack that was on the "Watch for Deer" sign in Illinois with the rack backwards before they changed it.
