Default No brow tines

Saw a nice deer Friday evening that would have been a shooter for me but it didn't have brow tines. It was only a 6 pointer, but had nice mass, maybe 15-16" spread and nice tine length. Last week I saw a 4 pointer in the same area without brow tines. Is this genetics or can I expect these deer to get brow tines when they mature more?

GENETICS... Especially the Bigger one... Take them out of the GENE POOL

We have that same problem on one of the properties I hunt. About 50% either don't have brows, or have very small ones.

I don't want to use my last buck tag for one of these misfit deer. I wonder if Illinois will issue cull tags that don't count against your 2 bucks a season. I didn't think so.

Genetics. Take him out if you get a chance. He sounds like a dominant sized buck and will probably breed does. Would be a nice buck with a bow.

I shot a nice buck Saturday that only had one brow tine. For the size of his rack the browtine he does has is small. It was a nice 15 yard shot and he went no more than 20 yards and fell over. It helped get my spirits up since I blew a easy shot at a nice 10 point that morning.

I also took one of those 6-pt miss-fits out of our herd. Where the g-1 should be, It was slick as a baby`s but?
