    I've been after this deer for a few yr. just never have been able to get close enough. I went up to the place today and found him scattered across one of the food plot. He had already dropped his horns. He didnt have many teeth left, he had been looking pretty rough.

  2. oh man that sucks. Maybe he has a kid or two that will grow like he did and you can chase them.

    So what do you think killed him? I know the yotes took care of him after death, just wondering if you think they are to blame.

    Was his back broken? That dark streak between his front legs - was his rib cage ripped open?

    Looks more like buzzards work.

    That thing had been drug along way, not buzzards.

    I think he probably died of old age, He had went down hill a good bit since last yr and was looking pretty poor. he only had 3 teeth in the front of his mouth, rest were all gone.

    Not at all. Yotes usually eat from the back end up.
