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'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:

That is an awesome deer.  I think bench bucks can be phenomenal.  That is a once in a lifetime critter right there.

Never did score him, His outside spreads farthest point is from drop tine to drop tine right at 24". He is about 15" tall
from bases, boy I could really exaggerate if I went from  the bottom of one of the droppers :bdid: He is unusual enough
that I never felt like scoring him.

Lol, are you sure you want to go there?  This thread may quickly devolve into a discussion about the distance to Portland and or the smell test. 😀
