Most Unique Deer I Have Ever Seen

43 posts in this topic

The Deer of a lifetime

This deer must have been in a lot of pain and probably glad he was shot. The antler actually grew out of his eye, and must have formed the knot afterwards. The eyeball is still in the deer's head just sunken back in his skull about 2 inches. Very unique. The hunter said he snuck up on his blind side.

That is one in a million. Great pics!

To get a buck like that and then have the bonus antler. I hope you mount it this way.

Sorry, I just read you header.

I would say this buck was fighting with another and took a deep blow to the head and got stuck. I am sure he drug deer around, until antler feel off other deer.

I do not think it grew out of his head.

I could be wrong.

Still a very nice deer anyone to get a deer like this is lucky.

That is what it looks like to me too, Although the one sticking out of his eye would be a very unique racked deer as well.

I got that same e-mail last week. The story in my e-mail said that it was actually another antler growing out of his eye, not from getting stuck by another buck.

This is what was included with the e-mail:

Huge deduction for not being the same on both sides. Now, if the other eye ball had an antler growing out of it.. We are talking about a Huge deer. Should have left it another year to grow smile.gifgrin.gif

So not only did the antler grow out of the eye socket, it grew backwards, and also a bloody stump just magically appeared.

It's pretty obvious what happened here.

I agree.

And it is still bloody. Someone may have fabricating this too. Good way to get your picture in the news.

Happens all the time.

I don't believe it....

if its real, id say this antler grew out under the eye socket because you look at the end and its like a drop tine and there is no base to it if it was another antler that went into the eye.

that is crazy. I have never seen something like that before. It looks like he was in a fight and lost the battle. That is very crazy picture.

not asking for exact info, but what area was that deer shot in? I showed my dad the pic and he was wondering where it was shot.

Thanks

Buck was shot on October 23 near Gardiner, KS, and is rumored to gross-score 190.

He must be rigorred up for his head to stay up like that, also notice his front legs tucked under like he is resting, but his hind legs are sideways. Must have died in that position, and stiffened up...still looks like an antler went in, not out...but who knows...could the bloody and dangling stuff be velvet??? crazy.gif

If you study the photo - it really doesnt appear to be an antler from another deer that got stuck. I mean the antler coming out of the eye - (or really near is more like it) is very strangely shaped - not at all uniform like it would be if ithad come off another deer. The tine that is growing upward from the eye area looks like it has been pressing on the side of the face as it grew...it sure looks like a natural growth to me. As far as the "bloody stump" on the end...I think thats just part of the growth on this antler...I am sure we will hear more details on this story (I sure hope so!!)but my vote is very strong that it is a "natural growth" coming out from the eye area...and not part of an antler that got "torn off" from another deer....

I am with you on that observation. I think if it was indeed from another buck that it would have broken off a lot cleaner than it appears in the picture. And if it did come from another buck it would be a pretty unique deer judging by the one coming out of the eye.

I third it's a natural growth. That "bloody stump" is not what the end of an antler would even look like. They are connected directly to the skull plate, it would be a flat end, not hoof-like looking. Amazingly unique deer.

sorry I am not buying that it is growing out of his eye socket at all. Yes it is shaped weird but no way. (also it is easy to photoshop pics)

i have been looking at this for a day or two, and i would have to say that im 100% sure that it came from another deer. There is blood on the end of the horn that is going through the eye. it had to come from another buck.

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.
