Default Was this deer non-typical?

I was out putting some feed in front of my deer camera this morning when it started pouring. A deer stand was only a couple feet away so I climbed up in it to wait the rain out. As soon as I got up there I saw 3 deer coming from about 150 yards away,a buck, a doe, and a fawn. As they got closer I could see the buck's antlers were weird. They got to probably 50 or 60 yards, but it was raining so hard I couldn't see how many points he had, but I think 8. What was weird is the anters we almost straight up and had a ton of mass. It kinda reminded me of a pronghorn, except with more points. They were coming closer, but unfortunatly my dog who had followed and was eating the feed saw them and chased them off. Does this sound like a non-typical? I don't know much about deer yet.

Thanks for any replies.

No that would not be a non-typical. And for reference here is a pic of a non typical.

It sounds like it may have been an odd ball buck but probably not a non typical.

Even points. Typical:4X4=8pt,5X5=10pt, 6X6=12pt

Uneven points. Non-Typical: 4X5=9pt, 5X6=11pt, 6X7=13pt

Ok, so if he has an odd number of antlers he's non-typical? As in more on one side than the other?
