I always considered it to be a spike that is unusually large in diameter or otherwise misshappen.
Like there 4 points on one side of the rack while the other side don't have any tines just the main beam
Just long antlers with no points. Usually older than a spike. We try to always shoot cowhorns so you dont have those genes in your offspring.
I've never understood how it gets to be called a "cow" horn when cows don't have horns.. Bulls do..
SD-Hntr... I have a few old cows with some impressive head gear that would like to differ.
Ibelive its shaped like cow horn.a singular horn no forks.SLOTHMANS right as rain ive seen many female bovine with headgear.Although ive never rung the bell on a moose.LOL.
Remines me of what happened several years ago. A friend of mine and his buddy and I were out scouting a ranch. I picked up the rancher and we're on the way to check out his south pature when the buddy pipesup and says "How come them cows don't have horns?"
a moment of silence and the rancher says, well some cows are born without horns. Sometimes the rancher cuts the horns off, but the reason those cows don't have horns is cuz they're horses.
thats a good one Ed haha
SD whitetail hunter we raise cattle and i can assure you that cows crow horns just like bulls but most horns are cut off at a young age so they wont grow that way there is less chance of the cattle injuring each other
