I had my vet remove the horns on a 2 or 3 month old boy that was pulled from our pack program and bought by a friend as a breeding buck. Everything went perfectly and I will never do it again. You will always have issues regardless of what you decide. Most methods of removing horns leave scurs. Pictured is the boy who had his horns removed. It took months for it to heal and the holes down into his nasal cavity to close.

thats a scur not a horn. For one like that you can wire saw it and burn it to stop the bleeding and if burnt well enough, could stop any further growth. For the other side, you can just burn it. By burn I mean us a dis budding or calf iron.
