Have you ever seen a kudzu buck?
Kudzu Buck Dead
The deer really like kudzu. If you like deer hunting big bucks you may like this story. Just the other day my father in law Bill called me and said he had found a photo copy of a picture he had taken on his hunting property. Right in his own back yard. He said he thought this would be a great story for us. There have been several big bucks taken deer hunting on this property. His grandson had told him he thought he heard two big bucks fighting back there. It’s several acres back there with part of it being a kudzu field. I’ve been deer hunting back there and it just looks like there would be some big bucks living there. Bill went to see what the commotion was back there that his grandson had heard. It’s pretty thick back there. As Bill was walking down through there, he spotted a deer leg. Then he spotted the deer. In all his years of deer hunting he hadn’t seen anything quite like this. It was a trophy buck that had gotten his rack entangled in the kudzu. He must have freaked out and broke his own neck trying to get loose. It was just a freak accident. Bill went and got his camera and took some pictures. He can’t find the original pictures or negatives but he did find a photo copy. The quality isn’t very good. If he locates the original photos I’ll update this post. It’s like when two bucks get locked up and can’t get apart. Except it’s just one kudzu buck. Bill eventually cut the buck out of the kudzu and cut off the antlers. If you are like me, and like deer hunting big bucks, you sure hate to see a big buck die like this, especially if it’s one you are hunting in your own backyard.
