It is my understanding that this buck got tangled in a fence and broke his neck. He was taken to Texas A&M's vet facility where he was to recover. I got this quite a while back and just received it by e-mail again today so I thought I would share the pics.

That is one awesome buck, but I'am afraid if I would have found him in a fence and broken neck, he'd be hanging on my wall right now:cheers:

I'd have to think that those photos were taken pretty early on in the process. :confused:

I think it would be wise to cut the antlers off to make sure that no one was injured in caring for the little bugger.....and the dang things weigh a few pounds!

I thought about that too Parker, but like MoBowman said, if I had found him I would have just put him out of his misery and given him eternal life on my wall. Or even a full body mount would be worthwhile. One of these days!!

This was taken a few years back. It is real and did happen. The buck died later. Don't remember about what happened to the horns though.

Well from what I understand, and have no reason to doubt:
The story is completely real and the buck was completely rehabilitated and was released on some undisclosed public land in Texas...

Amazing buck though!!

1. Nice gnarly racked buck.
2. I hope the person that took the injured deer in there pays for all the vet/meds/care bills.
3. If that gal was taking care of me, I'm not sure I'd want to get better.

I saw the same pics a few years ago. If I remember correctly, he was being treated at the college vet school, but he was not a wild deer...but the top stud at a private ranch. At least, that was story I heard back then. It makes the most sense, though. I'm sure the owner of THAT buck had to really protect his investment.

Thats another one of them that I guess has been around the world a few times, but I for one have not seen it and enjoyed the pics.

THANKS FOR SHARING!!!!!!:cheers:
