Seen it on a front leg of an old hoss of a buck killed on our farm once many years ago.
He had a hole in his back leg with flies and maggots too. Tough animals.

I agree with the others - looks like he got them caught in a fence. You did him a kindness by shooting him. Good on you, friend.

I guess the deer heard how they get skinned by hanging them by their back leg tendons.

Tough creatures for sure. Not sure he was put out of any misery. They look like they were healing up nicely and was probably getting around just fine. He looks healthy other than the obvious.

Thought I remembered seeing this a couple of years ago. Here's a link to a previous go-round on the internet of this buck.

I'm pretty sure it made the rounds on here too, but I can't currently get the search feature to work.

That may have been one I posted...we had a deer we think was poached & had a wound & died near a feeder. Poor guy had been walking on a stump.

It's really amazing to me how tough they are. Never seen a pic of a human walking around on a bone stump with it healed from a graphic injury. I'm sure it's happened.

Can't imagine the pain...will to survive I guess. Amazing the notes didn't get him.
