High and Tight

     Got these pictures of a pretty big body buck but it's rack is a little weird. The right side looks like it has three points on it and the left I'm not sure it has any. It's a genetic tract in our area that we have a lot of bucks that have this type high and tight rack. I killed a buck that had a rack very similar to this one about 20 years ago. This buck was about 25 yards from one of my hunting stands so hopefully we'll cross paths in a couple of weeks.

A handsome fellow, no doubt. My son likes to call these racks, "high rise".

Interesting! And it looks like you have a lot of leaves on the ground already.

that sure is an interesting rack but nice looking buck ~ our deer hunting is about 3 weeks out ~

Just had to google what a 'rack' is in relation to deer. Don't suppose I'll get to use it often amongst the kangaroos, but interesting nonetheless - thank you! :)

He is definitely sporting an odd looking rack. But a rack nonetheless. Wonder if this is a help or a hinder in a sparring event.

Maybe is best to get him. Like the roe I shoot. Not good for a healthy tribe. Big bucks with nice antlers are to be spared I think

Oh beautiful different is alright. :) B

Great looking deer! Maybe he was injured on his right side and that caused the left side not to grow as well? Good luck getting him.
