I counted 16 horns but could be wrong. 6 on each side and 4 in the front.

Are any of you g@g members experienced on the purpose of stags having so many horns? I would assume it is used for some type of protection and I think these horns if stuck can kill the stag or become east prey for their predators.

Please share your stag views concerning their many horns!
