    Crazy hooves

    I shot this buck last fall. It had hooves like I've never seen. The terrain it lived on was clay,rocks with swampy areas. Does a deers diet make hooves grow like this? I wish its horns grew bigger than its feet did. It didn't walk weird or anything

    don't recall what causes that or if they even said,
    but I recall a few hunting magazines that had deer with feet like that

    I think it had to do with injuries! but could be wrong

    did you save them??

    would have been cool to make a gun rack out of them

    I use to raise goats and their hooves would grown like that if you didn't trim them. I always heard that corn made their hooves grow faster. Thanks for sharing.

But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher
