Rare deer video

8 posts in this topic

Some friends of mine in Iowa were pheasant hunting a few weeks ago & came across 2 bucks with their antlers locked; one was dead and had been dead for quite a while. They took a video with a camera phone as they separated the antlers and let the live deer go. The link to the video is below; it takes about 14 min to watch and if you don't like rough language you should turn the volume down. The quality of the video isn't that great as it was taken with a cellphone camera and there was a lot of moving around. Notice the state of decomposition at the end of the clip. You may never see anything like this again.

You will need to have Quicktime 6.5 or greater and RealPlayer10 to watch it, and both will have to download additional plugins to view the .3g2 format. Windows versions should do that automatically, but I haven't been able to find the plugin for the Linux version yet.

Please remember that if you don't want to hear swearing, you should turn down the volume when you watch the video.

The poor deer looked like it was exhausted. It had to have been dragging the other body around for 2-3 weeks. Can you imagine how it ate, drank, slept, etc with that thing hanging on his head? If someone was to shoot him this season he'd probably be a little disappointed that the 12 point rack was broken up from the guys separating them.

Thats a great video. I had a friend in Roseau, MN. who shot a buck, who was locked up with another buck. One of the deer was dead just like this situation. All though I don't think the dead deer was rotten yet. He had both deer heads mounted, locked up, so you would hang it on the wall in the corner of the room. Pretty cool.

It was nice to see these guys decided to let the deer go. Did your friends say how pheasant hunting was ? I've been to North Dakota twice this fall and filled out both times. I am looking to go again, was thinking about trying Iowa.

7 guys got 21 birds. There are a lot of pheasants (and deer) around.

Without trying to be nosey, wondering what part of Iowa were they hunting. Did they just hunt a couple of days ?

It was in NW Iowa, around Emmetsburg. They live in the area. It was a one-day thing. I talked to one of the guys yesterday, three of them went out without dogs yesterday, saw quite a few but only got 2.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
