Very cool! Given the way the face is formed very early as a fetus(It sort of unfolds on it's self along two separate axis), driven by SHH gene, and regulated by thyroid function, there are a couple of things that come to mind.......I'll spare everyone though :mrgreen:

I'm going to have to look into the proper nomenclature for just what kind of bite you would call that............:wacko:

OK, OK, I'm pretty sure this is caused by the low buck to doe ratios in the area. Or possibly too many hunters(one in the same really), my other guess is weather, or the lack of a coyote bounty.......

But on a less serious note, the taxidermist is going to have a hell of a time with that.

Dunkem, I'm so dry most times I can't tell when I'm joking or being serious, which is always.......or maybe that was Cleese.

Oh wait Iron Bear, probably not over population. Probably more like the population is too low, and they are suffering from genetic bottle necking..........I'm thinking one of these might be easier to prove than the other.

Given the only picture we've been shown, I don't know that I'd make that claim with too much confidence. We have not seen the other other side of the head........

My cousins husband harvest the animal. I got pics shortly after the harvest. The Tom was 117.5 lbs. had an empty stomach. Weird deal to say the least.

King. Is it a Tom or female? The article I read on ksl said that it was a female.

Would not be pesticides, would have to be the 2-4D in the weed killer, in the grass, the bunnies were eating.....
2-4D was the main chemical in agent orange. :shock:
