Whitetail Buck With One Antler

By | March 13, 2020

I spotted this Whitetail Buck at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma back in March 2016. I believe the other side was shed. The Bucks start shedding antlers this time of year.

I watched this Buck to see if it would shed the other antler but it never did.
