Palmated antlers found in NY City no hunting area. Pretty amazing find.

Wow those are very cool, great set.

Would have made P n Y just on the mass measurements!

Love it. Incredible.

That’s crazy. I wonder if it’s even possible to score that buck? If so, how?

Where in NYC? Not too many places a deer can live there.

It's amazing that anyone wearing crocs could find anything...maybe they also relocated their dignity?

Pretty cool sheds, saw it on AT too

I’ve been told it was NY Federal land. I suspect it a prison area.

Wow - that's a great buck! Such a cool set of sheds.

Good example of why water displacement can really show how much bone was grown versus a tape measure.

Crazy buck.

B&C/P&Y scoring system rewards a palmated buck like that generously, with gigantic mass measurements.

“found in NY City“. One can not be sure it was from a whitetail deer as it may have self-identified as a moose.

You sure that’s not from a moose;)

1 common base. score is... 114.

I'd like to hear an official scorer tell us how they would measure those sheds. Incredible!

Pat, there are plenty of deer, and they are monsters on Staten Island and many in the Bronx too. Mainly by the Department of Sanitation Depot on Staten Island. Many make it to wall hanger status, even though NYC is a no hunting zone.

I never knew Staten Island was considered NYC. Thanks Al!

In his defense, the crocs are in 4WD mode.

Quite a find.

Can a deer and moose mate? “Elk and moose belong to different subfamilies of deer—genetically very far apart and totally incompatible.” Elk and red deer share the same genus, Cervus, and are closely related despite millennia of geographic separation. Moose belong to Alces, many branches away from Cervus.

WHAT? I thought you worked in NYC..................................... even a dumb country boy from PA knew that S.I. was one of the five boroughs! ;-)

From: tobywon

Technically yes, but I always think of NYC as Manhattan. When you're "going to the city", no one thinks you're going to Staten Island, Queens, the Bronx or Brooklyn. Either way, those are some interesting sheds!!

Well, I respectfully disagree ..................in fact my wife spent 7 weeks in West Chester Medical center (NY) for 7 weeks with a difficult pregnancy and I know people that considered that within the greater metropolitan area.................... ;-)

Didn’t mean for the pictures to be so large .Trying to figure out how to down size them. I must say the opening post is very much like mine and I’ve seen pictures of several but his are very close in looks.

Staten Island is one of the 5 boroughs that make up NYC. Every few years, they float the idea of succession, and becoming an independent county. They often refer to themselves the forgotten borough.

From: Pat Lefemine

I know the people in northern NY would like to succeed. It’s about as red as Alabama up there and they are losing their shit over the craziness coming from NY’s Democrat monopoly.

But I digress. Any measures here that can answer the question how to score a buck like that?

From: Zbone
26-Feb-23
I agree Pat, spent around 4 months in 1984 working in upstate NY's Adirondacks and got to know some of the locals up there and they wanted no part of NYC, did not want to be associated with them, and wanted outsiders to know they are a different from the city people... Most if not all I was around seemed pretty conservative...

Going back to the scoring, thought big palmations were unscoreible by the record books organizations?

From: t-roy
26-Feb-23
I’m gonna guess it would be scored as a typical 10 point, with common base points on the left side G2 and G4s, and a sticker or two on the right antler. Just a WAG on my part.

Pat:

They can and are measured (palmated antlers in deer). Here’s an easier way to explain how.

Thanks Roy, very interesting.

I wonder what the numeric difference would be between a palmated shed measured each way?

Just another view the day I received him back from the taxidermist . I was trying to capture the side view of the palmations to give an idea of how he resembles a moose . This was in my shop where I hung him on a 4x4 bench post .

Thanks for that Roy!!!

Also remember any one of you guys can buy a measurers manual on the P&Y or B&C website which gives detailed explanations and drawings of most all situations. I refer to it quite a bit.
