    Had pics of this buck since June. Sure was hoping he would make it thru season great potential. I Posted some velvet pics on here of him This last week of gun someone took a bad shot and hit him in the neck. Pics few days earlier he was fine. Last few nights he has showed up on cam hurt. This one shows how deep it cut. Sure hope he makes it. I think he will unless infection gets him. What you guys think?

    If makes it there will be no mistaking him. You should call him Forrest Bondurant.

    Infection is a concern and id think yotes could tear that back open after it starts to heal real easy. I hope you get another pic next year.

    Hope he makes it, but that is one heck of a hole. Its a shame to see one suffer.

    I highly doubt that slows him down.

    I don’t like naming deer, but Ol’Cutthroat seems appropriate.

    He’ll be more aerodynamic now when chasing tail.

    Just got thru looking at a few cards. Last few days he has been coming to corn and eating some. Got a decent frontal pic of him. Looks bad but I think it is healing some. Not much on naming deer but I think Ky swamp beagle said “Cutthroat” would be a good name for him and that’s what my son and I are calling him.

    Yep I think he is fine as well. A really cool deer to keep tabs on pretty easily. It's going to be a heck of a scare!

    Yep something could get him but I think he'll survive the neck wound. Good luck!

    I think he' good to go..due to neck swell it looks like only muscle hit...obviously not airway..and if he's eating not esophagus....hed be looking bad by now if he was nutrient deprived.
