    My deer has fangs!

    Or actually a fang.
    Or more actually a canine tooth.
    I'd read that this anomaly shows up in whitetail deer, but is pretty rare.
    My taxidermist buddy who did the skull mount said he's seen a few through the years.
    Pretty cool!

    Vooch, cajun56, pacificpt and 10 others like this.
    It's what you learn after you know it all that makes a difference.

    There are several fanged deer species in the world, but it's a rare thing in a whitetail, for sure.

    I think you found and shot Count Dracula's pet deer. You had better check under your bed and keep an eye to the window when you sleep.

    I once got a buck with one antler and a mane. Closest thing to a unicorn I have seen.

    Nice Vooch! Can you put up a picture of the whole mount? Looks pretty cool.
