Thanks to some quick thinking, these locked-up bucks made it out okay.
This time of year, locked-up bucks are fairly common. In most cases, a couple swift juke moves by one buck or the other can free them up. Other times, though, they need a little more help. Just take these two Nebraska bucks that were saved by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for example. After these two guys were found stuck together in a creek, it was just a matter of time before exhaustion set in and they drowned.
Finding something like this in a creek is recipe for disaster.
These two bucks were lucky, as conservation officers received a call and ultimately set them free.
Now, all these two bucks have left to do is get past the rut...and gun season.
