People used to think, once a spike always spike. Couldn't be further from the truth. A spike is just fawn that was born late and didn't have the time to generate much antler growth. There have been studies where spikes have the potential grow to be larger than year 1/2 old 6's n 8's in the long run. All genetics. As for the unicorn thing, you'll never know til next year if he is still around. Plus deer with funky antlers are actually pretty cool to shoot, given he has a problem with his antlers. Shoot ya a doe instead n wait for the big boy! Good luck!
