    Looks like "founder" to me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif [​IMG]

    The more mature deer behind my place have hooves that are just a little long and the sides fold under as they live their lives on blow sand. Makes a unique track.

    Definitely looks like founder, never heard of it in deer, but it makes sense. I wonder how big of a corn crib it was kept in ;-)

    You think somebody had that thing put up? If so wonder they didn't let it grow a little more?

    Winona is in MN, right across the river from Buffalo Cnty WI. I have seen that on a video of a deer, think it might have been home footage put on a Shockey video about 8 years ago. Jim was narrating, and said it was some hormonal abnormallity that made the hoves grow very rapidly.

    i guess instead of the boone and crockett club, that one could be measured for the foot and stompit club!

    Corn is 13 percent protein, soybean almost 3x higher in protein don't think corn is the answer...
