Those sure were some scrawny spikes! I'm surprised he hadn't snapped them off by then. Was he really small bodied as a spike? He still doesn't really seem to be up to par with a lot of the 2.5s I've seen you post in the past. I've seen bucks like that in the past that must have been born really late in the year and their body and antlers seem like they are a year behind for the first few years, then they all of a sudden have a huge jump at 4.5.
