Found my #1 dead. They got locked up and drowned. Pulling them out they came apart pretty easy but they couldn't touch in the little pocket of water they were in.

What a shame. Terrible way to lose a couple of nice bucks.

Be a rough way to go. Kinda fits in with the other thread about a shot not going as we hope and the result for the animal….

Yuck! That had to be a pretty terrible way to die. Mother Nature is one cruel B!

That’s a sinking feeling! Sorry to hear that Tanner. You’ve got a history with some big whitetails in it, and this is no exception. The fact that you came upon them (seems like) in pretty short order means you are tuned in. Something to be said for that

Crazy thing is, I shot a buck Friday night (which I passed once already) and I mistaken him for a different deer. When I went to track him I heard rattling in the trees where he headed. I knew exactly what was going on so I quit blood trailing and went right in, the bigger buck that drowned was beating the sh*t out of my dead buck. I felt pretty bad about shooting a buck I wanted to pass but atleast I got a cool experience out of it. So the 2 that were locked up couldn't have been there for more than a day.

Lungshot x2. Mothers NA true is cruel, time go after number 3. Are you able to keep the racks?

From: t-roy

That’s a kick in nads! :-(

It’s not much, bet at least a little consolation to know what happened to them.

From: Hessticles

Yes I was able to keep them, and beings I shot the one Friday night I am tagged out on bucks. I may not even shoot does as we got hit with EHD and our numbers seem down.

Ouch that one hurts me nothing is fair out there but seeing something like that just hurts good luck Lewis

15-Nov-21
Too bad, at least you know what happened and have the skull. EHD is a killer for sure. Has hit some areas this year

An acquaintance lost his #'s 2 & 3 that way last year. #1 was shot by a neighbor's daughter during the WI youth gun hunt.

Wow! Cool, but depressing find, I'm sure.

From: SBH

Least you know why you won't be seeing him around. That always drives a guy crazy wondering where a buck ended up when he disappears.

From: INbowdude

Curious, did you happen to save the meat?

From: Hessticles

No I did not, I didn't wanna chance it

18-Nov-21
My condolences. That's a bummer.
