I have found some nice whitetails that have died of blue tongue disease but nothing like this. Great animal and a great find.

Not the best way to go for anything, but definitely a good find out in the woods, not something you see to often.

It's kind of sad, but it was a quicker way to go than a lot of what nature provides.

Brutal way to go...but that's mother nature for you. I have yet to walk up on a similar situation or dead bucks with antlers locked but always wonder and believe I will eventually. It will be sad when and if I do but it will definitely remind me of the way things really are out there in the woods.

A couple of years ago I found a ten pointer on our farm;lying beside a creek embankment with no tell tale explanation of what lead to it's demise.It was about two weeks after gun season had closed;although archery season was still open.Although I have harvested many nice racks over the years and each one provides a special memory of a day in the deer hunts of the past---this rack is one of my favorites because it reminds me of the cycle of nature that we are all part of.This really is a special find and definitely one to remember for years to come.

what a whopper of a buck!! such a shame for an animal to suffer such a grueling death!! i cant imagine the pain of a struggle like that. so the real question is when will the anti's try to ban sapling's and dead elm limb's!!!!!

I found a bull elk in nearly the same situtation a few years back. Sad & horrific ending for such a nice buck. A fare chance that the preditors found him while still alive.
thanks for sharing the story

Sad reminder that nature can be cruel. Interesting note, think of all the mature deer that die of natural causes each year...too smart for us hunters, but not so much for nature and the course of life. I've walked up on 2 nice dead bucks in the past 3 years...one died from the wound made by a 270 (called around and found the man who didn't find his kill...he was elated to say the least), and the other by the hoof disease.

Seems wierd how i feel bad for this buck, but not when i throw a 1oz lead slug through their lungs. But at least he was found and given the honor to be mounted on the wall and will be spoke about for years to come!!
