Another deer with huge antlers is the reindeer.  The reindeer and the caribou are the same animal.  It's surprising to know that both male and female reindeers grow antlers compared to other deer species. They're also the only mammals that can see ultra-violet light. This means that white fur or urine which are impossible if not difficult for humans to see in the snow, the reindeer can clearly see them in high contrast. Awesome.
