    HI Guys,
    This was taken last night in Yorkshire. I was watching ears in the grass for an hour, then what I thought was a doe rose, and the head gear was visible.
    I was wondering what peoples views were on the cause of this malform?
    I didnt find any scaring, or issues around the genitals etc etc.

    I welcome your opinions.

    Try getting in touch with CIC as they have a wealth of knowledge about antlers and their deformities, "could" be genetic, diet or even due to injury related.

    +1, please put up pics when cleaned off, as for the reason behind the deformity, no idea, a very unusual and unique one.

    I do like the mongrel heads!
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    That's certainly an odd one, like to see him cleaned up also.

    I would say that it could be genetic. I shot one like that a couple of weeks back. Well done! Nice one to keep.
