    Split brow tines????

    A mate of mine shot this last Feb on private land. has been a free deer for at least 6 years (was a farm animal) but the bigist thing I see is the split Brow Tines, I have never seen this before and am wondering if anyone else has come across this on the farm or in the wild???

    I have shot a stag with similar shaped antlers in the central north island. It had a very long and forked trey tine. Would be very surprised if it had any farm blood in it though.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Split brow tynes are a common trait in some farmed "trophy" bloodlines. I will stand to be corrected but NO NZ FERAL of original bloodlines have split brows. For better (or in my opinion) worse they will become a more common trophy from escapes or releases, plus of coarse, hunting estates.

    I would shoot him just to put the poor bugger out of his misery! The weight and stress on his neck must be enormous - no wonder some of them suffer from skull fractures

    Are not most (all?) farm deer in NZ descendant from wild deer back in the live-capture days? If so, apart from a bit of selective breeding (for trophies), escapees/farmed/estate/wild/what-ever lines aren't really any different? And reason that they look so different is not genetic but the amount of feed etc that a farmed/estate deer gets?

    In theory, if I went and captured a spiker out of Te ureweras with good potential and stuck it in a paddock with grass for africa and all the nutrients needed, it would sprout a head like that in 1 DEER 1's photos?
    Yeah nah bro

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt.
