A Typical Atypical Rack


I’ve never shot a deer with a truly atypical rack. I once shot a little buck with only one antler but I figured he was born with a standard rack and had half of it knocked off in a fight. I’ve shot a few bucks with more points on one side than the other but I don’t think that’s considered atypical as far as official Boone & Crockett scoring goes.

 

But THIS guy has a decidedly ATYPICAL rack, what we would call deformed, like a guy with six fingers on one hand. I owe these wonderful photos to my friend Dave Zumbaugh’s trail cam. Dave lives just outside Shawnee Mission Park in eastern, Kansas where white tails practically outnumber the leaves on the trees. So Dave’s trail cam get’s a LOT of cool shots like these.
