Check out this crazy looking buck!

Saturday is our day to pull the chips to see what has been through.

We saw this buck a few weeks ago, but the photo was blurry. We thought, Wow, that is a huge rack, sure wish it was clearer to see what is going on with it. What we saw were the tines that were upright and though that the whole thing was long.

As you can see, there must be some sort of genetic flaw going on with his rack that he is passing on. This younger buck looks to have the same sort of rack going on.

I'm going to have to make a bigger effort next spring to look for sheds to see if we can find these unique looking racks.

I'm not sure what is going on with this buck's left front leg, but at this point, he is not putting weight on it. The knee looks to be a bit swollen, he may have twisted it or done some tendon damage. There were other photos that showed the swollen knee and upper leg a bit better, but I didn't want to bore you with extra photos. Otherwise he looks to be in good weight and not suffering
