Any Guesses on how the "Kickers" will turn out?

Postby BigCTD » Wed Jul 08, 2009 7:52 am

He is most definatly not a shooter and a young deer but the base's of his main beams have sparked my interested while going through my trail cam pic's last night. I shot an 11 off of this same property 2 years ago with a triple brow tine on one side. Hopefully i can follow this fella through the winter and into next year!

My question is... How does everyone think the "kickers" on the base of his main beams will turn out? Drop, points, rounded, 2 or 3 points, etc... I havnt seen this before and I am very interested to follow his progress

Can't say I've seen anything like that either, at least in velvet.
 
My guess would be small stickers rounded around the base.  Once he loses the velvet and starts to rub, he might actually rub some down to nothing.  An 11 point deer I shot lost a sticker that way, or at least I figure that's how it ended up going away.

Thanks for the reply!

I am hoping he can make it another year and have the same "kickers" and i'd like to see them grow out maybe 2-3"'s... Good poing about him rubbing them down or even off... ill post a picture later (pics on my home computer) of the brow tine's on the other buck i took of this property... He was 3.5 when i shot him with not so perfect genetics but his brow tines were very irregualer. The base of his left antler grew out like a crown almost... very neat!! This property doesnt have the best nutrition readily available but i have consistantly seem Non-typical bucks here!

All other opinoin's welcome!!

Interesting question, but I can't really take a good guess. I can see several different ways of how they might turn out.

But, are you teasing us with the partial photos of the mount? How about showing us the whole thing?
