Default Crazy picture, frozen doe from the Midwest

Saw this on Instagram from MidwestWhitetail, they said it's the 2nd one they've seen this year. Beautiful and savage at the same time.

Anyone seen anything like this before? One I can think of was Encinals pic from a few years ago of the dead buck with his antler stuck in the ground.

Totally agree.
Kinda of an oxymoron that my non-hunting friends donít understand

Found a hairless mangy coyote that froze to death. That was probably a long, slow miserable death.

Its sad for sure. A well placed arrow or bullet is a much better fate than starvation from old age, eaten alive by a predator or freezing to death in the snow.

Just think over the history of the earth there have probably been quite a few humans to meet that same fate.

Actually I read where they dumped him over a ledge so he's not in that little cave anymore. Some climbers complained because they used his boots and body as a landmark.
