I know these are pretty small and have seen some noticably larger this summer. But, could you guys give me some estimates on these two. I'm guessing 12-13" for each.

THanks GH, that's the voice of reason I was looking for. These guys were right by the road for two days at the puddle. I'll see if I can't get some pics of bigger ones later.

I took some photos during a scouting trip this year. Here's a little freak buck, dinky but cool looking freak horn.


A few 13-14" type bucks:





Then finally 35 yards from a big one. I had a tripod, big honking lens (420mm) great lighting, the works.. but I was so excited about it that I didn't get his head into the viewfinder.
He's got a real knarly scar on his belly. It's possibly from a freak lobster trapping attempt.







He is obviously scared shitless:

AHHH no horns on the latter pictures. I sure wish I could see them with the Horns on them, I'm guessing they are in the 11"-12" range jsut judging from the Bases of them.
I like the Peeing one though

Thanks GH. So, from looking at your pics, if the prongs are above the ears it would be a decent buck? Those pics rock, did you take them with an 35mm or some time of digital? Thanks again, and good luck with the Lobster.
