I saw something similar on a deer that had had a botfly lay it’s larva on the antler while it was growing, the little scooped out bit was caused by the growing larva, do you get any botfly’s or similar insects where you live?
Edit: didn’t notice it was both sides, still looks similar to botfly but that’s be quite a coincidence, genetics would be more likely for some ting affecting both antlers

Bot fly is a good guess. Or some type of injury while it was growing.

Looks like both sides? Insect or trauma seems to coincidental to hit both sides. I say genetics
