Double antlered deer

I had my camcorder with me on a hunt Monday evening at my buddies place.  I had this very ugly double antlered buck come in.  I've never seen one!  He's got spikes of a spike buck that aren't connected to his main beams.  I know it's grainy due to the low light and zoom.  If you look at the left tall spike you can see it's not connected to his main beam.  Wish I could have shot him but he's not legal in Texas.  He has to have an inside spread of 13" or be outside the ears.

Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Yep, he probably needs to be removed from the gene pool.
    I can't recall seeing one like that before

    Doe?   The biggest spike buck I ever saw was a doe.   Strangest thing to sit and watch it behave during the rut.   Saw it(her) a couple different times that season.

    Not legal in your county.  Not every county has that dumb inside spread rule... and the ones that do end up with LOTS of deer like that.

    Two points on one side or better is all my local mulies require.  Looks like a lot of good meat to me.  BOOM!
