In that context they may be drawing on the distinction between definitions for flammable and combustible materials which is regulated by both national and international safety organizations. Items that are categorized flammable (e.g. ether) catch fire more easily than items that are categorized combustible (e.g. surgical drapes which cover the patient around the operating area).

Oxygen is not flammable. It's required as an oxidizer for something that will burn (that which constitutes a fuel); but, oxygen alone does not. Exposing something already burning to more oxygen will increase the combustion rate and therein lies the danger with oxygen tanks. It can cause a lit cigarette to flame up and when dropped set clothes on fire.

Doesn't oxygen expand rapidly when heated - IE the containing tank will explode if heated. Some mistake that for it being combustible.

Only the same as something inert like Argon.

I can see most people would assume an exploding tank as combustion.

I'd heard about this, but just bothered to look it up:

Potential world-record nontypical buck taken in Tennessee

I think that he used an unfortunate choice of words in there.

Non-typical antlers are known to occur in wild deer populations and can range from a single "drop tine" on one or both antlers to the infamous Hole In The Wall buck. There are whole galleries of non-typical antlers, including the highest-scoring on the Boone & Crockett scale of measurement in every species recorded. In the wild they're uncommon, typically dying young or failing to breed due to tangling their antlers in brush or other antlers. On deer farms they're bred for multi-point tendencies. That mule deer wouldn't fetch a big stud fee from a farm, believe it or not. Look up "non-typical farmed buck" or something similar and see what kind of craziness you find!

My bad-checked the source material on that buck and he's not a muley. They're mostly western, though they may be expanding eastward. Interesting side note: DNA analysis has shown that the mule deer is a hybrid! About 8,000 years ago a group of whitetails and Sitka blacktails decided to start intermingling, and the result is the modern mule deer.

What are 'drop bears' and why is one town naming a street after them?

Follow-up on an internet story about an Arizona grandmother who accidently tweeted an invitation for Thanksgiving dinner to a stranger along with her family's invitations and the stranger replied asking if he could still come:
