makes me think it may have gotten clipped in the rear end early in the year or late last year by a car or something.

Whatever it is it doesn't seem to have affected his rack.
that leads me to believe it had to happen fairly recently. if it was an injury from last year it would have definitely affected his rack. i have to agree it's probably from being struck by a car or an infection of some kind. either way, put him out of his misery...;)

My guess is that it's an infection or cyst of some sort.


If it were a wound, they'll generally grow an odd rack on the opposite side.

Wound could have happened after he started growing the antlers but it doesn't look recent.

Wouldn't stop me from shooting him if given the opportunity though either way:wink:

Looks like maybe an injury that has gotten progressively worse.

Does show you how tough they are though and how they continue on each day.

Good luck harvesting him, got a great rack!!
