Both Dan and Marty saw this White-tailed buck along the road into Bear Canyon. Marty sends this info on points:

This buck's antlers had 7 points, but would get penalized according to the "rules" of counting points because of asymmetry (if you are interested in such arcane stuff!)

Why do antlers sometimes grow asymmetrically, you ask? Well, why are some people supermodels and others not? Genetics and environment.
