He is a beast... I agree he definitely isn't mature... I'd say 4.5 YOA. Those Midwestern deer are a challenge for me to age, they are just so much darn bigger than our eastern bucks... Usually! HAHA

None of the scrapes were hit yesterday, last night or this morning after yesterdays' rain. I did get one picture of a deers' butt last night......
Yesterday evening saw a spike 50 Yds from the stand as I was climbing up (we stared at each other for what seemed like 10 minutes before he ambled away), and a small 6 point 45 minutes later about 70 Yds. No does at all, and nothing big enough to even think about shooting.

Tomorrow I will start my all day hunts... We'll see if I can stick it out in a tree stand all day. My back is usually the first thing to give out on me! No Sunday hunting here in VA or PA so today is a day of rest, plus it is ugly rain right now.

Good luck hunting, Travis! Be sure to share your experience in pics as you may be able. We are having an absolutely beautiful day here - crystal clear blue skies and temps around 55 with the same forecast for tomorrow, so hopefully that's coming your way soon!

The extended forecast is looking up for this week... Not quite as cool as I'd like it, but cool enough to get the bucks up and moving during the day. We'll see!

I don't know how to zoom in on an image and then post it. Take a look at the left front leg of this deer.

Deer season ended 1-3-2010 here. I have no idea what happened.

I have a pic of the deer from yesterday, no change to the leg. It looks like a real clean cut, that looks like a tendon holding it together. I'm at a loss as to what did it. It looks pretty fresh to me.

On another note, I think all the bucks have dropped their antlers. I haven't seen one antlered buck on the trail camera since the 3rd week of Jan.

I'm going to get another bag of corn and dump it out. Maybe the little extra food will help it thru the winter. I know corn isn't the best forage, but that's all that is available around here to purchase.

Wow! That has to hurt... It's amazing how tough deer are though. We had a three legged doe on our hunting land in PA for 4 years before she either was killed by a hunter or died of other causes. Where I work I see a lot of deer with bad injuries from cars that survive and do OK. My Great Uncle Paul ran over a fawn with his combine one spring back in the 80's. The fawn got up and stumbled into the woods. He could see it has been hit bad, with one leg badly injured and what looked like blood coming from its head. No one saw the fawn again even after my Uncle Paul tried to find it. 3 years later, a guy on the adjacent farm shot a spike buck. It had a 4" spike on one side. It had no antler growth on the other side of its head and was missing its ear. It also was missing most of its back left leg. Pretty amazing a fairly young fawn like that could survive!

esshup, if your looking for something more nutritious for the deer, horse feed pellets are good, that's what I feed them.

I used to feed with corn and soybeans but that'll make you go broke! Ever since about '05 grain prices have blown up and I have lots of hungry mouths to feed. I now feed with my chainsaw. I just start cutting the trees species I don't want and trees that are deformed or never produce. Hinge cutting is a great method, it'll feed deer for years and they love to bed in the thickets formed by the hing cuts. Probably gonna do 2 acres of hinge cuts this winter.

Scott that deer will probably make it. It woudl in the south anyways. Gret photo. I will start testign all those expensive attractants late smmer. Since we can order them for clietns wnat to see what works for us. Corn seems to pull in most deer within days to capture on camera.

We had a lot of 3 legged deer after we let a bobcat trapper on my dad's property a few years back at the urging of our goat farming neighbors. He left all his traps out there, just disappeared one day. Game warden told us to shoot every one of them, no tag needed. Ended up shooting 6 that summer.

Geeze, I have had my fingers whacked by the traps my dad uses for foxes and cats and still have all my fingers... Bear trap is right! Traps whack hard but aren't going to bust a deers leg up like that.

If they did, the trap would still be attached to the deer as long as part of the lower leg was attached.

I'm still trying to figure out what exactly made the break.

He's still around (I think it's a he!)




It almost looks like it got caught in a saw, it's that clean of a break.

I'm thinking a bullet... Any major roads in the area? Might be part of injuries sustained in a car collision?

Poaching does happen in the area. The last "gun" season was ML, and that ended the 3rd week in December. No other visivle injury to the deer (hair knocked off, etc). The speed limit on the local roads is 45 mph, they are chip sealed, no center painted line. U.S. Rt. 30 is 1.5 miles away, and the speed limit there is 60 mph.

The weird thing is that the leg is still attached by a thread so to speak. if it was a trap or an entanglement it most likely would have taken to whole foot off. Strange...


take a kid fishing the first catch creates a life long fisherman. (my dad)

Bullet maybe ... Looks too clean as esshup says. I like your car encounter better. I'd guess it's a yearling buck. He would sure be a lot better off if that lower part fell off.
BTW it's way too far up for a trap anyway. They pull out of a tap in less than a heartbeat.

Ryan .... WOW!

I would go with, "the hunter got all geek-ed up and transmitted an improperly placed bullet theory" Too clean to be a vehicle accident.

I wish someone could go out and cut that tendon. That is horrible, even if it is a game animal. They deserve some Dignity and Respect, while being properly harvested.
