makes for some serious sized tracks doesnt it!
man, thats weird, and looks painful to run on.
I killed a nice 8pointer a couple years ago with white front hooves and the rear were black, I have the legs mounted for a table, just havent gotten around to putting it together yet.

I saw a buck one time that didn't have any separation in its toes.It looked like a small horses hoof.It was odd looking and not sure what caused it.

Yes indeed

Here is the body of the email that the photo came with.

This buck was a truck kill near Alma Wi. DNR said that high protein,

specifically corn was the cause of the abnormal feet. The deer is

currently sitting in the Alma bait shop freezer. <<BuckFeet.jpg>>


The WI DNR needs a little help with thier nutrition because corn is not high
in protein. The starch in corn may be a link but most likely it is some
other imbalance withint he body

I spoke with someone yesterday from the area and rummer has it that whoever was feeding these deer were using some type of goat feed. Who knows this plan probably backfired it all went to the feet instead of the horns, growth wise as well as getting around to eat the normal foods. I would bet it did not travel as much.
