This was a 2.5yr old 8 point. He could barely walk, he was skinny and had a bad foot, shoulder and his back leg was growing something. We decided to take him out but it was sad because he had a lot of potential. Beautiful young buck for sure.

I filmed this free hand so im sorry for the shakyness but ill be getting a tripod soon!

Nice young buck. You made the hard right decision. It's a shame, because he had a lot of potential.
