Great pics Grandad - do you have anymore?
Was your display all from Nth Island deer?  Were any of the deer in your display from Game Parks?
As the guys are saying, this trait is mostly found on Windsor deer.
Banwell has traced it back to the actual forest region in Germany, if you read the book (which isn't in front of me at the moment).
Clinton Valley in Fiordland is known to produce a few Windsor throwbacks. 
It's a very cool thing on a feral stag, almost as cool as the Windsor Rose which is more difficult to find.

Yes Ironsights, the 15 heads in the display were all wild Wairarapa stags. I don't rate Estate ones. Obviously I can't say I located all the Windsors, but I worked on it for months and honestly believed I found most of them. The photo display has been kept for Parkvale hall which is owned by Wairarapa NZDA. And both the pics I showed, the actual heads were displayed at National conference, Masterton.

Ironsights do you have any pictures of a Windsor rose? I've never seen that before.
Grandad is the throwback more common throughout the Wairarapa herd then any other herd?

Banwell (p.67) seems to say so.  Personally I've only seen it in Wairarapa & Rakaia herds.

There's a good pic in the Percy Lyes book of an antler in the Whitcombe with a strange wapiti like shape.

This is the head I was talking about...a very long throwback. And to make it more interesting the other antler is very flat the whole length.
