Cactus Buck

Shot this guy about a month ago. Very interesting. Still in full velvet. Monster body. The funny thing was that he virtually had no testicles. Determined him to be a cactus buck from my reasearch. Evidently they do not breed, never lose their antlers or velvet and basically grow antler all year round. Any more information on this interesting mule deer would be appreciated.

That's awesome... his antlers

That's awesome... his antlers still have some semblance of formation. Many times cactus bucks just end up with a knotted mess. Congrats!
