Welcome to the Nation. Congrats on a great looking buck and having two vintage type Weatherby's to show off also. Yours looks like a deluxe or a sporter model, is the scope an older model or something new?

I believe my left hand is a deluxe..The scope is a Bushnell 3x9.I replaced the original scope.Moisture issues.I have another mount on the wall from the same 300(10 point).Thanks again for the site.I will post mount later when complete.

Welcome to the Nation!!! Nice buck, like the background of the picture too.
The Bushnell 3X9X40 scopes are decent scopes, my Dad bought 2 of my kids a deer rifle when they decided to hunt. I purchased the Bushnell scopes for those rifles and they have been having great luck with them.

Non-typicals are always a little special.

Interesting brow tines on your non-typical.
 I've been deer hunting since 1965 and have hunted in 3 different states and the funny thing is I don't remember ever seeing a non-typical. I can't say I've clearly seen every buck, it just seems strange that I've never seen one hunting!!!

This none typical buck had an injured left foot.I found later after reading it may have caused the antlers to be uneven.
Left foot..right antler.

You have some nice looking deer down there Ontario 300 markv. Ontario is considered to be where the next B&C record whitetail will come from. Don't have much of a deer population up here in NE Ontario, even if they a an open season in 30.

Welcome to the Nation!

Nice bucks, and nice rifle, too. And you're correct, a leg injury will often manifest an opposite antler deformation. It's crazy how that happens, but it does.

In my hunting area (northern Alabama mountains) we have a particular strain of genetics which is for the most part symmetrical, but on which the left antler is always slightly, but noticeably larger than the right antler. Not related to leg injuries, but consistent enough to notice on the bucks taken over the past 7 seasons I've been hunting this property. Funny stuff happens with deer antlers, for sure.

Again, nice bucks and nice rifle. Welcome!

I had the buck measured yesterday by an official  FROW scorer.It was 142 gross..with deductions the net is 139 5/8..So close to the FROW limit of 140.  3/8 's from a FROW certificate .My Wife said you better pick it up for next year.Thanks for the site We enjoy the stories.

Thanks for letting us know
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.
