Injured Buck

Reply
Here are some interesting trail-cam pictures (from July through October) of a buck I have on my place that has injured his left front leg earlier this year which has caused deformity in his antler development. Back in August it really looked bad and I figured he would die from infection. But as you can see it seems to be healing good and I expect him to make a full recovery. I have read where and injury affects the opposite side of the antler development. I have two other bucks with similar leg injuries which I am trying to figure out what might be the cause. Any input is welcomed.

LETUMGROW : have seen young deer on property same way before , thinking it was from jumping fences while being chased by predators, years ago found a young doe hung up in fence dead hanging by leg wrapped up in wire

It appears to be either wound from some type of wire or some poachers were using rope to capture deer without using a weapon. Have seen several examples of wanting waste.
