Someone pointed out to me that the buck I killed a few weeks ago was a rare double throat patch buck. I never thought about it and not sure if I've ever killed a deer in the past with a double white throat patch. This buck was unique with the double patch and double split brow tines. Wondering how many have killed a whitetail in Pa with the double white throat patch and if it's genetics. Will this buck's offspring more likely to have the double patch.

Unique bucks are cool. Double brows and a double throat patch make him different. As far as genetics and offspring with one or both characteristics ? Anything is possible. My 2015 buck had a arch in his throat patch and that’s how I was able to find him in 4 years of trail cam pics. Home grown at our camp. I carefully look at other pics and have not seen any arches in any of the camp deer since. Most patches are oval or rectangular shapes. Buck also has the bot fly hole in the R main beam which also makes it different.
Congrats on a fine buck.

I do not have an answer to the question but I do know that is a hammer of a buck! Very nice pics. Is that last picture from a cell phone? What a pic!!!!
I actually forgot my cell phone which I often do and luckily my son come with me. We recovered it the next morning and I think he has an IPhone 12 or 13

Wow!! Is that a big woods buck or a city buck? Either way, very impressive.
Not city and not really big woods like central Pa, and not agriculture land. Lots of thick overgrown old farms, thick old logged out places and the great deer habitat of 2A
