Our buddy Wren (thanks man!) saw our post on unicorn bucks this morning and sent these pictures. This uni was shot just last December by Jake Steen on his family’s ranch in Texas. Wren reports that on early trail-camera photos of this buck, the velvet on the unicorn was so white that for a time they thought it might be a broken-off tine stuck in a cinus cavity. But it turned out to be a true uni.
I’m sure jake and everybody has wondered how rare his buck is. Well, as scientist Hellickson, says at least i in 4,000 rare. And with that cool white face coloration and the sticker on the unicorn tine, I’d say 1 in a million!
Note the buck’s main left side is shorter and funked up. As Hellickson pointed out, the unicorn growth was caused by an injury to the frontal skull area, so I’m sure that injury also caused those other deformities.
