I agree. he might have been hit by a car at some point. He stands like he is taking pressure off of it. Good catch.

i have heard it said, that injury to a rear leg effects growth of the other side antler.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
