    Attached are photos of a 1 1/2 old doe taken here in Illinois from our deer camp a couple weeks ago. Not sure what caused the deformity but she appeared perfectly healthy. One of our guys watched her feed for quite a while one evening and said she didn't seem to have any issues. Anyone ever seen anything like this?

    That is the little known Jar Jar Binks model of deer, made famous in the Star Wars epics!!

    Congratulations on finding one of this rare species!!

    Seriously, that looks like facial deformity caused by an accident or maybe a genetic deformity, although the genetic deformities don't typically survive to maturity.

    I wonder if that one escaped from the wildlife research project at Mississippi State....looks like it got crossed with the mascot. It looks just like my old bulldog Petee. Wonder if Petee made the roundsup up there, he sure made em round these parts.

    Perhaps nose was broken at some point.

    That's odd. I've seen 2 bucks from middle Tennessee with a 3 inch overbite, but nothing like that.

    7mm, Boil the head out and lets get a better look at the bone structure, it might give us some clues?

    In all fairness, Mike Rock is not the only knowledgeable person who thinks that barrel break-in is not all that it is cracked up to be.

    This is what Gale McMillan had to say about the subject:

    As a barrel maker I have looked in thousands of new and used barrels
    with a bore scope and I will tell you that if every one followed the
    prescribed break in method A very large number would do more harm than
    help. The reason you hear of the help in accuracy is because if you
    chamber barrel with a reamer that has a dull throater instead of cutting
    clean sharp rifling it smears a burr up on the down wind side of the
    rifling. It takes from 1 to 2 hundred rounds to burn this bur out and
    the rifle to settle down and shoot its best. Any one who chambers rifle
    barrels has tolerances on how dull to let the reamer get and factories
    let them go longer than any competent smithe would. Another tidbit to
    consider, Take a 300Win Mag. that has a life expectancy of 1000 rounds.
    Use 10% of it up with your break in procedure for ever 10 barrels the
    barrel maker makes he has to make one more just to take care of the
    break in. no wonder barrel makers like to see this. Now when you flame
    me on this please include what you think is happening to the inside of
    your barrel during the break in that is helping you.

    As for me; I take the time to complete a barrel break-in procedure on all of my new barrels. Not because I really know what it's doing but because I feel that it CAN help and it is unlikely to do anything harmful except to shorten my throat life by 50 rounds.

    Hey - I put high quality motor oil in my 4X4 every 3,000 miles but does it really help ?????????

    Whewww, that is one ugly deer. I sure hope it tastes better than what it looks. Only other thing I have seen that came close to that was a rabbit with an ingrown hair that looked like a horn coming out of its side. At least thats what the local vet said it was when checked it out.
