Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way

Previously, I had mentioned seeing out in my field, a nice deer, with tall, uneven antlers and a pronounced limp and I had decided that if given the opportunity, I would dispatch it.

My neighbor captured a picture of the deer coming in to his feeder and it clearly showed that it was missing its rear, right hoof and leg, just below the joint. Barbwire or a bad shot, we couldn’t tell. As expected the deer’s left horn was deformed and much smaller than the right one and with only one rear leg, I was wondering if he could perform his yearly reproduction duties?                                                                                                                                         Last Friday was the first cool morning of the year and I was in a tree stand overlooking thick cover and a feeder 110 yards away and here came three does right to the feeder. On time at 7:30 AM, the feeder spread the corn, the deer jumped over the low fence and chow was on!
