    Man that first pic looks bad but if he's eating then everything must be functional. He's a lucky boy!

    Good thing he has made it this long. Deer are definitely tough critters.

    I believe he will live as well. I also think he will be a TANK next year! It would be an awesome deer to kill with a wound like that but hell on a taxidermist.

    Checked my camera a few days ago and he has really been hitting the corn. His neck wound has really got better the last couple weeks. Few pics he was even fighting breaking off his left brow tine too. Hoping he’ll put on some inches this year and stick around till September. Great to see him healing up.

    I killed a 8 point buck in Ohio a few years back during the Jan. muzzle loader season that had a slug hole about 6 inches long straight up the backstrap on one side. It was full of hair and a little infection. The outside had completely healed at the entrance and exit holes. You could hardly tell it had been wounded. These deer are tougher than a pine knot!

    They are amazing animals, and to think we spent thousands a year on vet bills for our cattle

    Good to see him healing up nicely. I doubt he has any effects from it whats so ever!! Well. other than being a lot smarter that is!!

    He is looking good, but it must not have made him smarter. He is out and about at 4:30 in the afternoon. He should be nocturnal after getting shot like that.
