Quite the rack on this Qualicum Beach deer

NON-TYPICAL RACK: This photo, taken by Wayne Duke last week on Qualicum Road in Qualicum Beach, shows a mature buck with a velvet, non-typical rack. Duke suggested readers of The NEWS might want to check out sightings of the local bucks in case this one is sighted again. “It will be very interesting to view this guy when the process is complete and his antlers mature to full growth,” said Duke. “Even though he seemed quite content to having his photo taken, a measuring for Boone and Crockett record purposes is out of the question, at least not by yours truly.” - WAYNE DUKE PHOTO
