Greetings folks! Sorry for my recent absence on the blog site. Between hunting activities (and mostly work duties) I just haven’t had a lot of computer time as of late. Things will be changing here in another two weeks or so…and then I plan to resume my normal blogging activities.
In the meantime, I just had to share some photos that were passed along to me recently in an e-mail. I know nothing about the location or the farmer involved (if you know leave a comment). But by all appearances, this nice buck got caught up in the rollers of a combine rendering it unable to escape. Obviously by the last photo, the farmer likely killed the deer by cutting it’s throat.
I think for those of you who hunt in corn country, like I do, it comes as no surprise that incidents like this happen. Corn is like a magnet to deer and they will sometimes attempt to hold their ground in the cornfield even when there are only a few rows left to be picked. Too bad this nice buck had to end it this way.
