Got a call a few nights ago about two stag locked up. I showed up to catch and help out but was not happy to see one was already dead. I was able to get the other one down and unlock his antlers. Treated him and sent him on his way hopefully to rest and recover. The really bad part is the bigger one is the one that did not make it. He had a pretty cool drop tine too. sorry about the paint on the picture but i don't like to post people in pictures or mention names or ranch names unless they tell me to. Not the last time two males will fight to the death but you never like seeing it.
Yeah I understand it's part of life. Animals have a way to cull each other out and keep the herd balanced. It's really only when people get involved that the balance is messed up. But no matter how many animals I work on or hunt cause I do hunt every chance I get. I still hate to see animals suffer.
