I seen this guy several times during rifle season, found his right side shed last weekend. Beautiful healthy looking younger buck. As you can see his left side is pretty much just a main beam.

What is everyone's experience with something like this?

Injury early in the growth period?
Will it correct itself?
Genetic growth and will always be?
Should this be a target buck to stop this trait?

It could be injury to the beam while growing , which may not recur. It may be injury to the pedicule which would recur . It could be genetic which would recur. Keep your eyes open for him .this year. You may eliminate one or more of the possibilities. :D

Not genetic. There is no right side antler gene and left side antler gene

I had young typical 12 one year (6x6). The next year he had a big fork on one side (6x2). The following year he was a 12 again. Neighbor killed him.
I think they think that is because of body injuries. Once it heals the antlers grow normally again...
