I took this pic November 17th. I probably should have shot, but opted not too. We put a family member on him and she hunted him hard, but never found him. On new year’s eve a neighbor said he thought he saw him running a doe about 2 miles away from where the pic was taken, so I had some hope that he was still out there.
Saturday evening he showed back up in the same spot. Look how rutted down he is! All broken up and has to have lost 1/3rd of his body weight. Hopefully he can recover and make it another year.
