Exclamation Abnormal Buck

Hey guys, Im new to the site, and the other day i shot this massive weird lookin buck. He's got velvet still on, along with some other odd stuff goin on up there. I couldnt get my fingers around the base of the rack. Nobody around here has really seen anything like him, so we caped him out and threw him in a freezer in case he may be worth anything. Any thoughts or ideas regarding his rack? Im wondering if this dude's worth anything?
and yes, that's the exit hole lol he was quartering towards me.

thanks again

Worth is a subjective value. A taxidermist might give you a little for him. You can get a kit to preserve the velvet and could mount it on a plaque, or do a shoulder mount on the deer.

That sure is a strange looking rack. I know sometimes a buck can damage its testicles and the rack will look strange with the velvet staying on it like that. Not sure what else would cause that. Congrats on the buck.

Search for "cactus buck" and "cryptorchidism".

Not sure what would cause that, but if I shot him I would pay to get it mounted.

Thats what is my first bet, either by fence, animal, accident or whatever bucks like that typically have "messed up jewels" & thats why their racks grew like that.

Value wise, I wouldnt think anyone would much care to actually pay for the buck. (better check your states game laws, some expressly prohibit selling game parts so you could unknowingly get into trouble!) i'd mount him & enjoy the rare trophy!
