    Ok I have been hunting for almost 13 years now have taken 4 bucks in my deer hunting span all have seemed normal or at least the ones with racks did. Took a look at a trail camera the other day and saw a buck the right side went straight up like a spike but had 4, 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch points on it counting a normal looking brow tine. The other side looked to be an antler that came out then forward and down resembling a pumpkin stem. The deers body seemed to be pretty good between 160 - 185lbs just wondering what could cause antler growth like this. I know that I have read it could be inbreeding, also what I have read is he could have been injured somehow. Anyone out there have any other ideas? Or is this just the way the "Good Lord" made him.

          My guess is it survived a traffic accident (nasty blow to that side of the head) but fighting and genetic disorders are also definite possibilities. I also had one similar rack mounted.
