It's interesting to me that the head was found with no other bones around. Do you suppose an animal dragged it away from the carcass to gnaw on it?

IM jaybe :)

I'd have to agree with those who say that a "winterkill" most likely would have already shed the rack! I don't know if it was poor shooting, or an accident, but even if it was winterkill, the rack is remarkably well preserved. I left a rack out to dry in the back yard two years ago, and before I knew it the squirrels had gnawed it to nothing!

I can almost say for sure it's not a winter kill. One more thing, It's not from last winter it is from the year before. I have found many skulls,antlersand bones,this one is older than a few months. Nice find.

We found one this winter while cutting firewood. A buck had got his rack wedged inbetween 2 trees and i imagine the coyotes had their way with him. What a way to go. I have pics of it but just not with me at the time. I will post them up as soon as i can.

I'd say it was killed the year before because of the lack of hair &flesh on the skull and also because none of the nose membrane is intact. Most skulls you find immediately after the season usually have a fair amount of flesh on them still...even into early summer (if they are in the woods).
