Whitetail antlers comes in all shapes and sizes and no two sets are alike. Antlers tell the story of a buck's life and their growth depends on a variety of factors including genetics, age, availability of food and even injury.
This buck is a great example of the unique character that makes up a buck's antlers. He's a basic mainframe 10 pointer with great length on the G1, G2 and G3 points and has extra "sticker points" on his G3's although their in different places on the tine. No way this guy would make it past my stand!
This buck is actually very similar to the one above. Great brow tines on this buck, a nice mainframe 8 point rack with a few sticker points on the left G2. Those brow tines almost look like two daggers coming up off this bucks rack.
Sometimes, though, it's nice to keep it simple. This big mainframe 8 might be my favorite of the group. He's got great tine length, is very symmetrical (minus the left brow), has mass throughout his rack and long sweeping main beams. He's obviously an older age class animal by the size of his body and one that I'm sure any hunter would have trouble passing up.
With Labor Day weekend behind us fall is in the air and opening day will be here before you know it!
