Had this buck come in earlier this week. The rack looks fine but the deer is looking like he is not doing well. I know that bucks can wear themselves down during the rut, but he looks like he has something else going on.

What do y’all think?

He is definitely super skinny. Otherwise looks healthy from a still pic. Hopefully he survives because he has a beautiful rack on him!

I have seen cattle do this when they eat a piece of metal and it sticks inside their stomach . It is called hardware . This may or may not be the case but with no sores , hair loss or large lumps , I think hardware.
