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
