    Was out today and was not expecting to see a 3x3 Mule deer still holding on to his head gear.

    I once took video of a whitetail mounting a doe in march with no horns.

    Is it possible that he is a "cactus buck?" I've heard stories about people catching fawns and if they are a buck, they castrate them. Supposedly, if you do that they will never shed their antlers.

    I've never seen this myself, but always thought it would be interesting to know if it was true.

    If that was the case he would never shed his velvet. He would grow antlers but never become hard horned. Increases in testosterone is what makes the antlers calcify and the velvet shed.

    I'm not really sure what would happen to a buck if he was hard horned then was castrated somehow. Would he keep that set forever or grow one last set?
