Justin Eckert 2012
Alberta What The...
March 20, 2013

Justin Eckert is a guide for Billy Franklin of Silver Sage Outfitters. He watched this mule deer buck during summer scouting sprout his new antler set until the buck contracted an unknown injury or disease that almost finished him.

Somehow this buck made a fully recovery to a healthy body weight, but not before the ordeal took its toll.

Antler growth in a nutritional luxury after the needs of the body are met first. Obviously whatever this buck had in reserve and what he was able to eat in a weakened condition all went toward fighting off whatever was ailing him, and antler growth was discontinued in the process.
