Thread: Odd munty antler

    Odd munty antler

    A while ago l took this munty, it has what appears to be an additional antler protruding from its pedicle, its about 3/4" long with a small brow tine, l have seen something simular on a couple of roe culled on an estate in scotland although they was only small buttons, has anyone else seen this in muntjac before.

    I have seen a few like this over the years.

    Do you have any pictures of the teeth, as from the antlers, skull and pedicles he does not seem to be an old animal.

    That's an interesting one for sure. I wonder if anybody can offer an explanation as to how these extra growths/eruptions are inititated. Might they merge into the main growth in future years as the pedicle retreats?

    For the record, here's a picture of a 6 pointer I took last year.

    Could be the result of some kind of puncture to the pedicle - such as No 6 shot perhaps? Perhaps Morena might be able to comment here.
