    I didn’t notice the tongue either. I commend you for caring. I usually try to avoid it too but these are tasteful images and I know you from social media to know you aren’t a blood thirsty antler hunter 🤣. Congrats.

    The main thing is you said he had a limp, I took a 4 pt years ago that was limping. After we retrieved him I found out his whole left hind quarter was full of maggots. Not a good way to go so I felt good to not lot him endure a slow painful death.

    @Jonathan I sent a picture to Jim Heffelfinger, who is a wildlife biologist and deer “guru”, and he said that most likely the deer had broken his toe at some point and it didn’t heal properly, so the hoof continued to grow in the wrong direction. He said he couldn’t be 100% certain, but that was his gut feeling.

  • Kevin's avatar

    That's fantastic and congratulations! What a great story. Poor fella had a jacked up hoof for sure

  • Bruce's avatar

    You did a great job on the photos. No disrespect I see. Great story and great job. Yes things like this do happen to people like us. Great deer. God bless.
