Have saw him once while hunting his antlers are black on the tips like he injured them during velvet.I think its very possible. I dont know what else you have around there. The second deer definitely looks like a 2 year old, but just a real dud. The shape of his frame is the same... id be 50/50. Youde think hed have grown a lot better than than, but sometimes they dont. Maybe he was hurt? Sick? Tough to say with any degree of certainty. Is it in the exact same spot? Do you have other possibilities on camera?
Left is a 4 point 1.5 year old , right is a 3 point.Second time I’ve read antlers are reversed…I’m just not seeing that.
Weird crabby left both pics
