  1. Was there forsure signs of this deer being shot? If so that’s horrible!! If not there could be a chance that this deer was hit by a vehicle and someone took the antlers?

  2. I’m confused, so you can’t cut antlers off an animal that was taken down and eaten by wolves. The animal wasn’t poached by people, only the antlers taken. I don’t see anything wrong with this. Someone please correct me if I am wrong with my thinking.

    1. Darlene Your opinion of this situation shows how shallow your problem solving skills really are. How do YOU know it was not poached and then left to die AFTER the antlers were removed? A pack of wolves would smell a bleeding carcass from 10 miles away..It really doesnt take a rocket scientist to logically figure out the most probable scenario here. Somebody most likely only wanted the antlers so they killed this deer. and left it to rot hoping no one would discover it. It is one thing to hunt and eat the meat but it is quite another to kill an animal for just the antlers.
