    March - What the heck?

    Now as I go through my March trail cam photos all the bucks have round spots were there antlers used to be.

    Now this photo was taken this on 3-31-12.

    My guess is it is either a female or it does not have testicles (hypogonadism or cryptochidism). Testosterone is what causes the antlers to harden and eventually fall off. In this case there looks to be no testosterone surge in the fall causing the antlers to harden and then fall off as the testosterone levels decrease.

    Yip " cactus buck" everything about that deers features screams female. Mainly the eyes. Females typically don't have the heavy superaorbital ridges and wider zygomatic arches like that of the males. They also typically have longer eyelashes. This deer has long lashes, narrow zygomatic arch and the superaorbital ridges are pretty much non existant.

    It's been a good run, but do to my day job and personal reasons, I have shut down the taxidermy studio thank you to all who have supported me in the past.

    Do you all think I need 2 cameras opposing each other.
    That way next time I get a photo of the deers face there will also be a photo of its South Face?

    Yeah kinda. Or maybe lay one on the ground.
