This buck was hit with bow by the neighbor last November high on his right shoulder.. I got pictures of him in early December and he had already shed his antlers. This spring just after the snow had melted I got a picture of him and he was skin and bones. He looked like he wasn't going to make it. He seems to have recovered nicely. Last year I figured he was 3 years old with a rack almost identical to what he has now. I suppose due to the injury and his condition he was in he did OK to get his headgear where it is at.
