Devil Deer
« on: July 08, 2008, 05:18:50 PM »
This is a deer my son killed a few years ago. It was a 13 point and the 13th point was a 5 inch point that grew our from its eye! This photo does not show it well but it was the weirdest thing I have ever seen on a deer. The taxidermist had a time trying to figgure out how to mount it. The horn came out of the eyelid and prevented the eyelid from closing. The eye was dead and glazed over...

Here is the actual story on that deer......

This year (2006) we were going to do something different. Each year, my son and I do a little deer hunting. He would rather fish than hunt and I would rather hunt than fish but this year, I had the perfect plan to get us together more. I would buy a video camera and I would video tape his hunting experiences. We would create some lasting memories as well as some outdoor show quality hunting videos. Now, my day job may be working on and with computers but at home, I am pretty low tech. Researching and picking out a video camera took me almost a month but I finally got just the right camera for our outdoor adventures. Before I could even learn how to operate the thing, Jesse had gone hunting with a friend on his land and killed a nice buck. All without me getting one second of it on film! Anyway, this buck has started the makings of a myth here in Butler county so I thought I would take the time to set the record straight. After all, if everyone who has claimed to have seen this deer had actually seen it, the line would have been longer than the line to see James Brown. The deer would have rotted to bones before the last viewer passed by the sacred tailgate to gaze upon this freaky beast.

The buck has a nice 12 point typical rack with a 13th point growing out of his right eye. The eyelid was unable to close because of this horn and the eye had died. I told my son this was probably why he killed it. It was half blind to start with…

So.. To make a short point and a short story.. He killed a freak 13 point buck with a borrowed rifle sitting in a friends shooting house. All of this while I sat at the house trying to figure out how to set the light meter on a stupid video camera…

A special thanks to John and Ray Wallace for taking Jesse hunting before I was ready…

Jesse says he’s waiting on spring now so he can go back to doing something challenging… bass fishing..

That's usually how it works.  What kind of camera did you end up buying?

 Nice deer. It's weird how antlers can do that. I found a dead 140 inch 10 point after the 06 rifle season. When I skun the hide off to boil the skull there was a little nub growing between his 2 antlers. WEIRD!

about 2 years ago a paper book magazine i get called woods & water had a picture of a big old buck that had a whole 3rd beam growing out where the right eye would be they throught at first it was in a fight and a beam broke off into its head, they found out it just grew that way. tell you son to keep up the good hunting and if he wants to fish for big bass come to FL, we grow small deer but big bass.

That is great. great story , great deer for your son. It must really be awsome to get to spend that kind of quality time in the outdoors with your son.
