Anyone know if this bull is still around? Took these pics from Napas parking lot. Wondering if that horn ever falls off.

 here is a poorly shot video of it and another bull. I ran into a biologist up there and he said it was likely caused by an injury of some sort.

LongBomb,
 This Bull isnít the first to hold onto an old antler while growing new ones.
 In fact, the condition has a name: Doppelkopf. Itís a German word that means ďdouble set,Ē and itís a condition documented in numerous species of deer.
In normal bucks, a cyclical drop in testosterone level in winter triggers the shedding of antlers. In Doppelkopf bucks, something in the cycle fails.
ďAbnormal or failed antler casting has been reported in association with the maintenance of high testosterone levels after the breeding season, damage to nerves involved in antler growth, and nutritional stress......... David Osborn and Dr. Karl V. Miller of UGA and antler-growth expert Dr. George Bubenik of the University of Guelph in Ontario.
(Your Bull will be interesting to watch for in the future (if it isn't already an unusual addition hanging on the wall in some other hunters collection.)

The best thing about Hunting and Fishing, is that you don't actually have to do it to enjoy it.
You can go to bed every night thinking about how much fun you had twenty years ago, and it all comes back as clear as Moonlight.
