Same deer in all three photos?

Take it out of the gene pool....and put it in the freezer.
Stalking is very much like going to the night club
The more times you go, there is always a chance of going home with one
You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...
Fallow are good at breaking their antlers, my guess is they have just snapped one side off and will grow both sides again after they cast.
They are also getting close to casting, in the next couple of months, so that years antlers are done and the reason why they cast and regrow every year as inevitably they may break during fighting and tree thrashing.
If you have a safe shot I'd be taking them out as Tim suggests ...pm me if you want to use my cold room ...
ESussex, just looked at some of your other pictures of the fallow in your garden and see a picture what looks like the same buck in velvet and it does only have the one main beam, so i stand corrected and in this case does seem to be a malformation, and may have a damaged pedicle.
Nice to have them coming to your garden regular.
