dropper
« on: November 27, 2017, 04:05:39 PM »
I filmed 2 different two points with droppers this fall.  Here is the little one.  The other is Mr. September. His rack was cool and I got really close shots of him.  This guy didnt want me within 500 yards of him.

Nice! How often do you see a WA deer with any type of dropper?

Definitely rare, but they are out there.  I have seen pictures of one that was taken this year.

I saw a muley in Idaho with a drop on one side this year.  Real nice buck, I thought he was a bull when I first saw his rack coming through the brush.  That's the only one that I've seen in my life.

I think out of all the sheds I have, I have two that have true droppers and out of all the bucks Iíve killed, I thought I had one.  That turned out to be a point damaged in velvet and bent down.   They considered it a point, not a dropper

I feel like I remember that buck/thread.   Montana?   Dig a pic up for us.

Mine is a weird one as well.  Mine kind or originates above the main beam, but then drops... Iím not sure if it qualifies as a drop or not. I think it must completely originate from the main beam?

I hope to take a dropper someday before I die, I've never even seen one on the hoof. Thanks for sharing the pic, can't wait for the calendar  :tup:

I've only seen two with substantial droppers while hunting.   They were both big, mature deer.   I'm killing the next one that I see.   I attained a trail cam picture of the buck I passed last year.   He was hard horned when I had my encounter.   It was a tense couple of minutes sizing him up and trying to make a go - no go decision.   :chuckle:

This buck will get his own thread, but check a sneak at this dropper.  I filmed him this fall
