Two hunters struggle to stop a Colorado buck from mauling their trophy deer.
What do you do when a buck starts to beat up the deer that you just shot?
The two hunters in this video were asking themselves while hunting in Colorado back in November 2012. It was the start of the rut, and the bucks were roaming the forest looking for one night stands.
After a day of scouting, one of the hunters managed to shoot a trophy 5×5 Colorado buck. The pair was cleaning it in the camp when a lesser 4X3 buck wandered in with an angry look in its eyes.
Watch the video below to see how they handled the awkward situation.
The rut makes deer do some strange things, but this is pretty weird. Full of piss and vinegar, the younger buck mauled the dead deer with its antlers, nearly tearing off the dead deer’s face and legs.
Between them, the hunters only had one tag, so they couldn’t shoot kill it. And the angry Colorado buck didn’t give a hoot about their shouting.
By the way, please don’t shoot your guns into the air like these guys did.
