Local antler peculiarity?

Most bucks in my area seem to have a "weak" right antler...meaning, morphologically similar to the left antler, just a little shrunken or retarded looking.

Sometimes this is as subtle as an...

It has never occurred to me to use a flashlight on the way in or out. They only come out for tracking/gutting at night.

Best whitetail rifle for $500-700?

I'm sure there are a hundred thread like this already in existence, but I'm in a bit of a time crunch and don't really have time to research properly. I prefer a .270 caliber.

Santa brought me a Leupold Golden Ring 8x42 HD binocular

I can't get over the image quality. Easily better than some binoculars I've tried that are twice as expensive. Highly highly recommended. I can't wait to get these out in the woods!!!
