Jhalfhill, I thought you might enjoy a pic of one of my yearlings from a couple years ago. Since then Ive had late fawns, and not as nice first racks. Let me know if you wanna see more!

well guys its all been downhill since the last time i posted. somehow he managed to take a chunk out of his left antler. there was blood flying everywhere when he first did it but it clotted in a short amount of time. however a large mass of blood built up at the tip of the antler until the velvet finally burst. that antler as stopped growing and its a shame too because the right side has tine length about the same as Bill Yox's pic above. from the G3 to the end of the antler has already fallen off, and i believe he'll lose that antler completely sine the velvet was destroyed before it was done growing. the bone will probably be very weak and break off when he starts rubbing around on it.

since this was an antler injury and not body, i am keeping my fingers crossed that this doesn't effect any of his future racks. this guy has great potential. i will post some pictures of the now screwed up rack as soon as some of the dried blood and dead velvet falls off.

Jeff, Ive seen where a terribly damaged antler does fine the following season, or maybe just one atrophied year, then good. Is he growing new or pink velvet near the break? How are the flies? Id also check the pedicle base to make sure he didnt have a stress fracture at the base too. Sorry if this is all stuff you already know, just making suggestions. Hope he does well for you!
