I was out this evening and spotted this buck so i took him out.Very nasty mess he was in maggotts all his head they had eat to the bone.


Just wondering has any came across this before.

I have never seen this on a deer.I have seen sheep with maggotts on them but never as bad.

He may have been spiked fighting with another buck in the rut, horrible, poor beasty, you would get a bit of satisfaction taking him.

I had a Buck like this that had maggots all under the skin of the head, when I saw him I thought he was a black animal as all I could see at first was his face looking over corn, when he turned and offered the shot the client dropped him and when we went up to him you could smell him from yards away, I have some photographs which I will try to find but he had been fighting as he had wounds in the chest and rump the venison was unfit to eat.

Thats nasty...well done for taking him out.
Would a situation like that be just cause for culling an out of season beast to prevent further suffering?
