    I guess he lost an antler due to an injury and the maggotts took over, good cull!

    Both antlers were fully formed hard antlers if that helps any.

    maggots are bad this year, on all animals that have a cut or injury.

    Christ Kev as you say he's in a right mess, definitely one to cull.
