Found a old warrior dead in his bed today.

Postby Tennhunter3 » Sun Oct 22, 2017 10:40 am

I was scouting during midday and followed some large fresh rubs to a tiny point sticking out into a brushy bottom.

Climbed my tree and hung stand looked down and there sat a old dead buck in his bed. Looked like it was a year or more old only horns part of a skull and backbone remained.

His horns were real low but heavy hard on decline from his prime 8 point probably 110 class. From his teeth he was at least 5 if I had to guess I'd say 7 or older.

I think he died of old age.

Sounds like a spot a new buck will take over. I'd like to see some pics as well

I didn't take any pics or keep the skull it wasn't my kill. Probably should've taken a few pics.

Does your keyboard have commas or any other significant punctuation?

I would pull what is left out of bed. I would keep head.
I live to release an arrow and watch woods grow into chaos and then grow quite as a mouse in just seconds.
