The neighbor farmer does actually have deer and bear and other animals penned up and occasionally get out. But his deer has huge white tags in their right ear and almost impossible to fall out. Will have to give him a call to see if he lost one. I have helped him tranquilize a few in the past that escaped.They never made it this far over. And I know he has never cut the antlers. Getting on the horn with him now. Never even gave that one a thought, Thanks.basdjs said:My first imprression wasn't that it was in velvet. Looks more to me like his points have been broken off or, if it was a penned deer that escaped, cut off.
