Anybody know what's going on with this guy? Did he snag his coin purse during velvet at some point in his life?

If it were an antlered doe it would be the fattest doe in history. He may have lost his nuts, but he eats good.

He/She/It does have a skinny neck but look how big the other parts of the body look? I can say every deer in velvet that I have seen checked in during this time of year were does, but it was only like two.
I had an antlered doe killed off of our place 3 years ago, but she was out of velvet.

I'm in Fayette Co, did your uncle's buck show any signs of injury to his jewels??

Woodsman, u think his skinny neck could be bc he's not affected by the rut? Am I correct in assuming a hot doe trottin by prolly wouldn't peak his interest due to low testosterone? I appreciate y'all's help!

He said it had only one testicle and it was about the size of the end of your thumb.

Im not no deer biologist, but his/her neck does look skinny that of a doe would look. I would guess from lack of testosterone. But then again, wouldn't a doe have to have extra amounts of testosterone to grow antlers? I have heard that a buck sheds his anlters when his testosterone levels plummet.
Is this a girly man or a manly girl?

Definitely not an antlered doe. In fact, that buck looks close to if not fully mature.

Here's another angle. Not 100% certain, but I think I've read where a rise in testosterone levels triggers velvet shedding. So, if he's not producing test, his velvet antlers will continue to grow and ossify. Also I think without test, he won't shed his antlers either, so will his velvet just continue to grow year round?

Sometimes, very cold temps will freeze the velvet and kill the growing antlers, requiring them to start over again. If he was carrying the same antlers his whole life, they would be a heck of a lot bigger/crazier than his current set. I suspect that for whatever reason, he sheds them annually.

I agree either sheds them annually or its a recent injury.
