Iowa muzzleloader kill

Once again, we go to Iowa, this time for a big muzzleloader kill from late December.


I’ve heard of deer not losing their velvet.  Not sure if that’s the case with this buck but the rack looks weird.  Almost like the antlers are in some sort of decay.

That’s definitely velvet

Yes it is velvet. There are many reasons that they may not shed their velvet. Possible causes are cryptorcidism (retained testicle), testicular tumors, an antlered doe, testicular injury to name a few. The condition is caused my low testosterone levels.

“Once again, we go to Iowa, this time for a big muzzleloader kill from late December.” - Tim, we are all well aware of your agenda at this point.  When we want to see big Illinois bucks we go to other websites.

Sory GG, no Agenda- I didn’t even write the Caption, Jeff Lampe did!

Would love to post giant Illinois bucks here all day long- Send me some or send them to Jeff!

Glad you found other websites you like!
