A game warden uses a gun to save a deer's life.
When the rut is officially in full swing and the bucks are starting to fight over does, things can get a little hairy in the hunting woods. And sometimes, unfortunately, deer end up in a life-or-death struggle when two bucks lock antlers.
You may remember years ago when we shared some footage of a Kansas game warden freeing two locked bucks with his Glock handgun.
Well, it happened again, shortly thereafter! Watch the full rescue of a locked buck in the video below.
The game warden captured this body camera footage in Clark County last Friday and the Kansas Wildlife Parks and Tourism Facebook page says coyotes had already partially consumed the second buck before the warden arrived.
Considering the video we shared earlier this year was that warden's second time freeing locked bucks with a Glock, and we now have this video, we're wondering if freeing locked bucks is standard training now for Kansas Game Wardens?
We didn't get the name of the officer, but congratulations on some fine shooting officer!
