Buck with Antler in Eye
That had to hurt!
This trophy whitetail buck had some very uncomfortable days until he was harvested by this hunter. It is obvious that there was a fight during the rut and this deer ended up with an extra antler (embedded below the eye). You can see that the antler from the attacking deer was broke off below the base as there is still blood on the pedicle. That takes a tremendous amount of pressure.
Nature can be a cruel mistress…pretty amazing.
