I shot this one a few years ago. When I first saw him (fleetingly) I thought it was a 'murder buck' so I went looking for him a few days later. He is a sort of murder buck but not as we would know one.
The fella had obviously grown more than just his front points but somehow his main beam had been shorn off just above the branch. I say shorn off, of course it might be frost damage or something else.
So, any ideas what caused him to end up with such a strange head? Bear in mind this was about four or five of years ago and the winters in Hampshire were not especially severe or with prolonged cold.
