TROPHY WATCH - ARCHIVE - DETAILS



Texas, 2004
Bizarre Circumstances
February 1, 2005

This photo is definitely making the rounds on the internet, as it continues to make a stir. This deer was reported as severely wounded by a pilot, who saw it from the air. It was radioed in, and eventually the deer was killed with a knife. There are many circumstances about this deer that are currently very controversial - how the deer was killed, who will retain ownership, legality of the kill, etc. It's a sad end to a magnificent animal.

Update: This big buck was determined to have had a terminal brain infection. There was an abcess in the brain that contained bacteria, causing loss of motor skills and giving it the drunken-like appearance that it was observed having when it was first spotted.
