I was out on Tuesday morning and right on my boundary, on our way off the ground we came across the worst looking buck I have ever seen. He could hardly walk and his body weight was very poor. On closer inspection he had a broken front leg, swollen up like a tennis ball, plus his pelvis didn't feel right either.
He was about 4 years old and as you can see by his head must have been suffering for most of the winter.
