I had a mature Bull grow a split bez on one side several years back. We suspected that he damaged his pedicle the previous year and the splitting of the bez was the following years result. He only did this one year out of 12 that we cut him. That year he lost points in the regional competition because of the double bez, but weight of the antler is still the major factor and if his antlers would have been heavier the double bez penality would have been compensated for by the heavier weight.
Good Luck with your set!
