Default More proof...Deer are tough!

My BIL sent me this picture today of a buck shot back home in MS. Iíve never seen one this bad from a previous wound and still making it along. It was supposedly starting to heal somewhat at the main site. Pretty amazing animals with a strong will to survive.

Post other pics up of Deer youíve seen still alive or killed with a previous injury and were still getting by...

It looks like he was healing up pretty good.. If the bone would have just disconnected from the joint

Default Nothing that drastic.....

But got this pic today.
25 yd shot from a 17' stand 2 weeks ago. That is the exit. Guy said he hit high.
Very little blood for 75 yds, then none. Had dog too (obviously no use).

Magnus Stinger. From the exit view, looks like it should have smoked him!

It's sad to see those pictures and a testament to just how tough those kritters are.

It should also serve as a reminder to the responsibility we have within our index finger every time we take to the field.

A good friend's son shot this 32" Axis a couple of weeks ago on a small place they got an invite to.

Why in the world would someone try to head shoot this guy? Sad but glad they found him before it had gone too long. He was still in good shape body wise so they were able to make some nice table fare. The taxi is going to fix the kiddo up with a new cape too.

Two years of the same buck. First pic is November then TC pic with broken leg in Jan. Velvet pic of him in early June and then one in late July. He did pretty well considering. The doe is one of those "clean miss or dead deer neck shots".

This one has been carrying the arrow over a month. I am the only bow hunter so we don't know where he came from. (I didn't shoot him)

I would bet that isn't a bullet wound. I'm thinking he was full sprint and found a fence. I've seen pen deer do that and rip their lower lip/jaw identical to that. Had to sew it up and he healed fine

Not a good picture but this guy was dragging both hooves behind him and was getting around on pegs. Had one beam broke off too. He was eating and drinking water so I ended up letting him go. I bet the coyotes weren't as sympathetic...
