    Have you scrutinised his RHS? Antlers such as these mean that something has happened on the opposite side. A leg injury, car impact, etc
    The rule seems to be if you can hang a ring on it then it counts as a point
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Teyhan,

    I've zoomed the pic 400% and can't find a 7th point, I can see a damage, am I being thick or just missing something?

    Its his left antler that has deformed so it is his RHS (right hand side) I meant.

    I thought that would be the area you are thinking might be a 7th point. Looking at the head there are two points on the other antler that are damaged, plus the antler with your hand on it seems thickened. I would agree with Teyhan that the buck has suffered some sort of trauma, possibly whilst in velvet, but still wouldn't class it as an extra point.

    Can you hang a wedding ring on the extra point without it falling off? That was the way I was taught to tell whether or not it qualifies as a point.
