Default What is wrong with the deer here?

Hey guys, I think that i just saw the weirdest thing. I live in El Cajon CA and we where driving to the lake to go fishing and i saw a buck and a doe cross the road. The weird part is that the buck had horns at this time in the year It was a 3x3 With velvet. To my knowledge the deer usually wouldn,t have horns right know. Can you guys give me some input.

There is a strong possibility that the deer you seen was no buck, but rather a doe with antlers. Does that have antlers tend not to follow the same characteristics with their antlers than bucks do. The genetic matter that drives bucks when to grow and to drop antlers is missing in the does with antlers. They do not follow the patterns bucks do, of length of daylight, ect., and can grow and drop antlers at anytime.

Could of been an antlered doe?
There are also differing theorys that are used to explain why some bucks will stay in velvet when they usually should have shed it, teste injuruies or dissfunction, injestion of toxins through water or feed,disease etc.

Its a Cactus Buck. A buck with damaged or broken testes[]
without balanced and seasonal Testosterone levels these buck will often stay in velvet there whole lives. Since there antlers continue to grow they may become huge odd shaped horns.
