Yeah, they do. Every year. But I agree with rabbit. Seems awfully early. We got one years ago during November rifle season, had already lost one and second broke off in my hands. Was infected and we thought why the early drop.

A few years back I had seen a good sized buck with nice but very mis-matched antlers. One was pretty much normal 4 points, other was 2 points and drooped way down toward the front - very heavy. Told my hunting partners to try to get him if he showed up. Wanted to see up close. No one saw him during season, or afterward. Next summer I was brush hogging off a hay field hit something. Thunk! On next round I stopped to see what I hit. Found the distorted antler and just a few feet away, found his other antler. Dropped both in the same spot. Still got them.

If a buck suffers serious injury to a front leg it often results in grossly mismatched antlers. My son wrote a short story a few years back about using his only tag on an old warror with a bad leg. The buck had a deformed but interesting rack. Son shot him because smaller but healther bucks were giving him a bad time. Best he could figure,the crippled deer's odd way of walking looked threating.
