Default Lost one of my target bucks this morning

Had a buddy text me this morning saying a big buck was lying dead right past my Dad's drive way. I rode by a couple hours later and someone had already cut the head off, but it was a huge body and older deer. Deer was hit about 300 yards from one of my stands

That sucks but that is what happens to a lot of them around here.

Why in the hell would somebody cut the head off? As far as I know ain't no way to save mushy growing velvet antlers

I have no idea but it was cut off halfway up the neck. Maybe they think they will dry out, I always figured they would rot away

If you allow the velvet to dry out, it will stay. I've got my first caribou still in velvet and it was shot in 1976.

I don't believe anything will stay when the antler is still growing underneath????? It's just blood vessels and tissue

It's the exact reason the I went to a "Kill em all" attitude several years back around here.

What puzzles me is why in the hell they try and cross 4 lanes of traffic coming from an area of nothing but houses and very little woods. If they stay on our side, its woods all the way to Lake Allatoona and no cars. Dumb animals

Seem to be a lot of deer there this year, my Dad has given up on his garden, they have even started eating his peppers They destroyed his beans, okra, his grapes and grape vines and all the peaches and pears that they could reach.

We put him up an electric fence couple of years ago and it helped for awhile, but now they don't pay it any mind.

Doesn't bother him in the least when one of them gets ran over
