drop tine

7

These deer are only about 2-3 years old but have absolutely insane antlers due to a rich high-protein diet and selective breeding. People pay thousands of dollars to hunt these farmed deer. We mounted these so that the antlers are removable for easier transportation.

I don’t claim to be very knowledgeable about the topic, but I do wonder if growing antlers so large and fast have any adverse effects on their bodies. I know the huge drop tines must limit their ear movement at the very least.
