Saw this 4yr old in person last week and noticed some skin hanging down and a bad limp. Seemed to be doing OK. Thought he might have had a rough fight and was just a little banged up as this was a new injury (seen several times over the course of the season and almost daily on camera). Finally got some good pics and it looks like a pretty clear brisket shot. Was a little surprised as this deer hung almost entirely on the interior of our property but all bucks can take a vacation and he got shot by a neighbor on his.
Given he has still been active and can hop in and out of pens fine, do y’all think he is good? Doesn’t seem to be in a bad body shape outside of the shot. Would hate to see a deer with his potential go down before his time due to a careless shot. If so, hopefully he learned his lesson about vacations.
