Never in the mind of this hunter would he imagine a trapped mature buck in his hog trap.
Typically, when you go to check a trap, you reasonably assume that you would secure what you are trying to catch. Or, the trap could just be empty.
Well this trapped mature buck would be on anyone’s hit list. However, this hunter had respect for the animal and let the buck live another day.
I would argue that at least 75 percent of hunters would have used their tag on this buck, but obviously it wouldn’t be fair to the deer.
This Georgia hunter respectably helped the deer escape. According to a Facebook post by Melinda and Bryan Rooks, the deer only had a bloody nose and should be fine.
Now only if the trap will work for some of those pesky hogs.
