So he's the winner?

Wow, that's brutal!

Where did this come from?

That's an awesome pic. Rarely get to see shedding velvet pics, especially like that!

From: David McLendon
Date: 14-Mar-18




Looks like he could have waited a few more days before he started rubbing. What's the rush?

From: Sawtooth (Original) Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member

Whoa. Never seen that before. Is that from losing velvet or does he have a head injury? The way his mouth is positioned it looks like he might be stressing over something.

I'm glad I didn't see that fight. I know nature is cruel sometimes, but that is just plain sad. This is not a comment about posting that pic, it's just sad to see how nature works sometimes.

Hopefully, it's just a flesh wound on the forehead and not the eye.

He was rubbing the velvet off and probably shook his head like a mad buck to get it off. His neck is too small to be a fall deer. Not to mention the entirety of his antlers are equally red, clue #2.

Cars have horns!

He is yelling for Adrianee.lol

From: Mpdh

He may have become tangled up in brush or a fence and then had to struggle to get loose. Don’t think it’s from a fight, unless he’s strong enough to jam his antlers in all the way to the burrs!

That just looks like blood from the shed velvet, not from a fight. Otherwise there would be scuff marks all over his skin, shoulders, coat, etc. This blood is from the velvet coming off. Those antlers are fresh velvet-shed horns, the blood has not even dried yet.

Guess I should have read the other posts first - already been said. Also though, the tips are real pointed, not yet rubbed at all. Points do wear down some by Nov. from rubbing and aren't nearly this sharp.

Reminds me of an old country song

Sawtooth, I think he is a southern deer and he was just getting ready to spit his tobacco juice, not stressed at all.

He's Manstruating.

That’s the buck that Sandy Harris talks about in his book!

I'm with Pearl Drums...Neck is not swelled enough and real pointy tips...That fat belly will be run off before long too.

Like others have said, it's from the velvet coming off and just maybe he has some in his mouth, as I believe I have read where they do eat it sometimes when it's freshly shed.

He's known as the serial car killer LOL.

From: Shawn
Date: 15-Mar-18




he is stripping velvet, he is eating some of it no doubt. They clean it up as much as possible. I have seen worse when they shed a bit early. It was probably really bothering him and he thrashed a bush and the blood started to flow so he wanted the rest off asap. No fight, no injury at all! Shawn

"That’s the buck that Sandy Harris talks about in his book!"

Very cool to have a pic representing the crazed buck in my novel. If only he had a drop-tine to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was him!

Yep, shedding velvet. You can see it draped over his eye.
