An early morning coyote hunt turned into an against-the-clock rescue mission for two hunters. One buck is dead. The other gets a new lease on life.
The rut can be a life-and-death struggle for whitetail deer. And when antlers get locked-up, the prognosis is often grim.
Imagine being eaten alive like this one unfortunate buck? Or dragging around the lifeless body of your foe, knowing the same fate will ultimately befall you?
Hats off to these compassionate hunters. A day of predator control ended with a rescue that won’t soon be forgotten.
