Big dead head

I was down at the farm for Christmas and decided to walk off some prime rib chasing the elusive southern MN grouse.  The dogs found one but I missed. 

 

Next the dogs found a deer I had some history with.  In August, his G2 was bent down to look like a big drop tine.

However, the “drop tine” fell off when he shed his velvet.  It was pretty sad walking up on this promising young buck.

I looked hard for a bullet or arrow hole but couldn’t find any sign of one.  That sad the hide was missing on half of him so a gut shot that didn’t pass through might have been the culprit.  He was laying right at a fence at the bottom of a near vertical bluff so I assume he was wounded and lost momentum and died at the bottom.  There was a doe in the same condition 50 yards away.  

 

I assume it was neighbors or poachers because no one that I know lost any deer and they both were in very obvious places to look if you shot one on top of the hill and lost one

Nice looking buck, next year he would have been a good one.
