    I shot this Stag a couple of years back. It looks like he may have had a run in with a branch or something when he was in velvet.

    The three antlered Rusa Stag shot not far from my property at Taneatua by Michael Hill. It is the most unusual head I have ever come across. Three antlers, Three pedicles.

    This stag head was put up on here by Michael a couple of years back.

    The Rifleman, where was that stag shot. I have seen one with the rams horn antlers on both sides, I didn't have my camera handy so never got a photo, it was in the Tataraakina hunting blocks.
