Did that buck already shed his other antler?

I don't think so...appeared broken, and looked like it was healed up. The antler he had was still firmly attached. I have seen bucks back there this time of year that had freshly dropped antlers. And, there is always stories of hunters that go to drag out their buck and the antler pops of...
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

filled my multi season tag early yesterday morning, made a bad shot and after a 3 hour blood trail we finally caught up to him and were able to finish him off, not how I envisioned my first archery deer, but was super happy when it was over
