Well i think there is more to come.

It may truely be the first unicorn buck i have read the article but i believe bucks are becoming even more unique day by day.Although it truely was a strange thing to read about and i intend on hearing even more almost unbelieveable stories in the future.

wow that second one is a real weird one! Some big rack it has too...
wonder how that would work...(the little single spike)
I wouldnt think it would shed being part of his snout,and even his snout looks funny being long and skinny...pretty cool thing to see, 8)

That is the most odd thing I've ever seen. I wonder if that spike sheds every year or if its there all the time.

As a taxidermist(former anyway) I used to see that type of antlers enough to know its not terribly rare. From the looks I suspect they shed each year.

What I have only seen once, excepting muntjacs, is a WT with " fangs" or what I'd call canines in the upper pallet. That should be a revert from 1000s of years ago I suspect.

WOW that is really cool ive never seen anything like that before
i would definitely get that one mounted, possibly even a life size or half life size mount. Thats as cool if not cooler than an albino.
hey Jeff, as being a former taxidermist, how did you like it? I would like to start up mounting, first as a hobby for myself, but maybe afterwards i may pursue a career. any hints... ...or any good info about taxidermy?
