Here are a few pictures. This summer he had a small wound in the spot where the antler grew. Will this shed off or not? Should it just be left alone? If I cut it off will it possible break at the skull? Thanks Jeff

I would saw his antlers normal, then cut about half of the abnormal point just to keep it out of his ear.

Thanks Reed,

If you look close at the third picture you will see there is a smaller point that is causing the red sore spot on the ear, it hits when he flips his ear. Thanks for the reply. Jeff

Jeff I agree with Reed. You might wind up with an infection from the antler point keeping the wound on his ear open.
