Saw this young fallow buck this evening sitting in a stubble field. He was alert and saw me before I saw him. I got my bins up, looked at him and he was away. Unfortunately for him he stopped 130m from me and turned side on and had a good look at me. Heart/lung shot connected and he ran another 40m and dropped down dead.
When I examined him I found a snare around one of his front legs. He had managed to break the wire near to where the snare had been secured. The wire had cut down into the bone. No sign of infection and it looked recent to me probably about a day old.
