    Many years ago, I was talking with a biologist who specialized in deer in California. He told me that most of these big forked horns were older bucks who were getting near the end of their lifespan and started "reverting back" in their antlers. I am sure individuals genes play a big part also. The one I took was really a big bodied buck, I got around 160# of meat from him as I remember. I've seen a couple here in Colorado too, so it's not just a local happening.

    They count, if you can hang a key ring on them!

    If the G&F has a 3 point minimum on one side antler restriction in place, and you shoot a buck that has an eye guard/brow tine, a main beam, and G2. Does that eye guard/brow tine according to the G&F not count as a point? Yes it does.

    I think it depends on the state.

    Here is a big old California buck that did revert back to a forked horn. The photo of him standing he was a 2X3. The next year he was a 2X2 in the second photo.
