Definitely could have been. Looks like he's been through the ringer.

Not uncommon for bucks and does to stand up and box each other at a feeder. Dominance even comes into play in velvet antler growing season.

I would say scars from last years rut and losing the fight to a dominate buck.
I had a friend that shot a large heavy antlered buck at the later part of the rut one year. The buck looked weak and sickly as it came to his feeder, and he took it to put it out of it's misery.
When we skinned it out and there wasn't an area on either side of the deer, shoulders and hindquarters that was salvageable. It wouldn't have made food fit for a dog to eat. Bloodshot and puss and puncture wounds over the entire body.
The deer had to have been near death as it was.

That's crazy. I've seen them beat up, but damn. Worst one I saw was last year. Not beat up, but sickly, weak with what looked like puss and matted around eyes.

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

I see it happen quite often at our place. A doe won't put up with a buck around a feeder right now for long.

Looks like he got punched in the nose. Bet an old doe ran him off a feeder.
