this lad had no abrormalities though his nuts were rather shriveled upWe shot two Fallow bucks this season that were 90-100 Lbs yet had very short stumps as antlers. They were not "hummles" but were not right for their size. A lot of RTA's around our way so might have been something to do with that, but no sign of past injury on either beast.
Sorry to bust your bubble but is know Hummel over the years I've shot literally hundreds like that which is perfectly NormalThought I'd reopen this thread as I'm pretty intrigued about fallow hummels. Ive shot 2 hummels in the same 10 acre woods in 2 years. View attachment 88702View attachment 88703t
The first pic is one I shot last night, the second is from last year. Shot in the exact same spot at the same time of the year, both heading towards a rutting stand in the adjacent woodland. Both weighed bang on 40kg with the skin on but no heads or legs. Made me wonder if its potentially genetical? I didn't keep the stumps off last years one but have sawn this years ones of to keep in my antler collection!

Pleased to be of some help.Ok.... I didn't have any bubble I was wondering more what actually causes it rather saying that they were some kind of rare occurrence? Congrats for your explanation that literally taught me nothing.
I was not talking down at all . Just stating facts of personal experiences of Culling thousands of Fallow.Perhaps if you don't talk down to people you might get better responses pal. You get what you give and all that.

Perhaps if you noted the weight age etc it would tell it's a run of the mill Rubbish Pricket and for record I'm not your " Pal " i was trying to educate/ help. Which is obviously wasted on you
