I got pics of this buck last winter. Once in early December and again in early February. If I would have only gotten the February pics I would have just thought the he had shed the antler on the right side. But being that it was already gone in early December I'm guessing that it was broken off fighting. You can't get a good look at the pedicle to see if it was broken off flush or if something else had happened to it. No one saw him live so I got no help there.
I enjoy the snow pics just not the snow. We haven't had much more than flurries but I heard on the news today that some of the counties across the mountains from me in West Virginia have up to 30". That's a good 25" to 28" more than I want to see...great pics or not :).
