JTV I wonder if it’s a buck that died from EHD and was in the water?

That’s an ‘ok’ deadhead.

Here’s a better one I held.

Holy Hell cnelk. That is an "Animal"!!! The buck skull, its amazing that wasn't chewed on by something. Its at least a few years old.

On dead heads I've found, there's usually very little if any chewing on it. Possibly due to the scavengers feeding on the carcass and the scent they leave behind after it's consumed?

Funny thing about that first dead head, is it's got a completely normal and proportionate 4x5 frame inside of it all. Neeto

Midwest, good observation. Probably not many squirrels, porkies and mice around with coyotes and ravens constantly picking at the carcass and scent-marking it.

Its like 2 deer in 1.

MPauls X2^^. That was my first thought as well. Looks like they set a smaller rack inside of a bigger one.

It could have been found out in a CRP field or possibly out on the prairie. It seems like the sheds or deadheads that I’ve found out there vs in or next to timber show very minimal to zero chewing as well. Seems like squirrels do the most damage. Also wonder if, after they get a bit chalky, they are less appetizing to rodents as well.

Yes, it was found in Alberta. If you're on Facebook or Instagram, check out Non-Typical Nation. They personally know the guy who found it and have some great pictures of it

assuming the OP photo is real, perhaps it never shed the prior year's antlers?
