While fishing, it was lying up on the bank with the skeleton

Man, you've got some really bad trackers in your area! That's a bunch of deer shot and lost for one area.

No wonder you have so many deer around there. It looks like the yellow brick road all the way to your shooting house \:D \:D

I was thinking this one was shot and lost but on some of the others, it's hard to say. Being right by the water near a place that I know gets hunted, he was probably shot and never recovered.

Nice! Already most of the way cleaned too.

If it's in a area well hunted, then this one my have been sick or one would think that someone would have probably found him earlier. Or it could have floated down as well I guess. Who knows.

probably what happened to my 1 horn buck, shot him with an arrow, blood trail dried up 200 yd later, ran another 200 yd and died by the water, and I'd never have found him without a more experienced tracker (geezer)

Catman, I might need to release you on our place. You seem to find these quite often. Though, I hope you don't find a dead 150" \:\)

If all of the skulls are found near a water source, then the problem could certainly be EHD. But that's a lot of skulls from older bucks to find on one property. Did you find skulls from does or young bucks in the same area? When it comes to deer age and sex, EHD is an "equal opportunity" killer.

this skull wasn't on the same property. I was fishing another local stream and had slowed down to look for arrowheads and saw bone up on the bank.
