Didn't Think He Would Make It

  1. This buck was hit with bow by the neighbor last November high on his right shoulder.. I got pictures of him in early December and he had already shed his antlers. This spring just after the snow had melted I got a picture of him and he was skin and bones. He looked like he wasn't going to make it. He seems to have recovered nicely. Last year I figured he was 3 years old with a rack almost identical to what he has now. I suppose due to the injury and his condition he was in he did OK to get his headgear where it is at.

  2. he looks good. Have you been able to see where his injury is? Was it a pass through shot or did the arrow fall out or break off?
     

  3. If you look at the 2nd and 3rd pic on the top of his shoulder you can see the light spot where the wound has healed over. Don't know the specifics, just that the neighbor had hit buck and didn't get it. He was feeling bad about it so I didn't drill him on details.
     
  4. oh yeah I see it now. Looks like it healed up nice. I have noticed that when a deer is injured it seems to have an affect on the growth of the antlers, obviously this hasn't happened with this deer.
