The Struggle is Real for This Rut-Tired Buck

We're guessing this guy had a late night chasing the ladies.

This hilarious clip comes to us by way of James Byler, a Colorado native who happened upon an overly tired mule deer buck Nov. 5.

I can't imagine the life of a buck is an easy one. All that scraping, rubbing and chasing down does all day long has to be exhausting, especially with the heavy headgear they cart around.

It's no surprise that from time to time, deer just have to say "the heck with it" and lay their weary heads down for a little shut-eye.

Try not to laugh when watching this:

Did that clip remind you of anyone in particular? You have to love how he acts all nonchalant each time he wakes up, just in case someone happened to be watching.

Thanks for sharing this awesome footage with us, James! This is a humorous side of deer we seldom see.
