"All" is a strong word... "All" bucks are supposed to lose their antlers, and 99.5% of them do. The only bucks that do not lose their antlers have something wrong with them that causes them to hold on to them.They are usually very weird and nasty looking if this is the case I believe as well.

my 2 cents!

there was an article here in the paper a few years ago and my taxidermist did the mount but this buck caught his scrotum on some chicken wire one day and castrated himself cause lose of teststoseron so when it came time to shed his rack he never did his rack kept growing and always stayed in velvet. awesome looking deer.

I know most bucks lose there antlers, but if you do see antlers on a deer it is most likely a doe that grew antlers. They say that does will never lose there antlers. Ya I know your thinking does don't have antlers, but they do. I actually had somebody in our hunting group shoot a deer and it had all the female parts, but with antlers. I guess it is very rare, but it happens!
