We were checking our back pasture Sunday before opening it up for the cows, when I ran across this skull of a young buck. He could have died of natural causes, but most likely he was wounded and died later. We have had a problem with poachers for the last couple of years, both in the daytime and at night. I've been awakened at 2AM by someone shooting towards my barn from in front of my house. Seems like we don't really have a lot of hunters in my area, but rather a bunch of people that like to shoot at deer. There is a difference. What a waste.
