    A guy down the road from me shot a huge buck and crippled it. He found bone where he shot it but they never found the deer. Last night, a week later, the deer shows back up on his game camera. When he shot at the deer it was almost facing him, but quartering a little. The deer was about 175 yards away when he shot it. NOw the deer is back but with a hole in his upper hind leg. My question is, do you think this deer will survive? One of my buddy's says it will be ok and another says it will die. I really don't know. What do you think??? Pic is kind of graphic. If you look close you can see through the hole. The guy is trying to get a second shot at him and hopefully he will get him this time. OH, he was shooting a 7 mag.......I'll try to get a pic of him so yall can see his rack...He's nice.

    That doesn't look good at all. Stranger things have happened though.

    This cold weather will help a little but i wouldn't get my hopes up.

    It's just a matter of time before infection sets in. But deer are tough animals. I give him about a 60%, chance. I hope he waits till the deer is broadside next time.

    This, if the infection don't get him he'll probably be okay.

    Next year somebody will probably kill a three legged buck with a messed up rack on the opposite side of the injury.
