May have had an injury on his right side somewhere causing his left antler grow abnormally, may have injured in in velvet.  His ears are back, (doesn't look very aggressive), other than that he doesn't look like he's going to assualt the camera.

since the base and brow have formed normally, i would tend to think the rest of the antler was damaged / broken off in velvet.  If that's the case, should be back to normal again next year.

I agree with allthingshunting.. I think this deer broke that antler off while in velvet. Is this the only photo you have of him?
