Nov 22, 2009: Deadly Rut

The "rut" is when male ruminants, attempting to breed, become aggressive, combative and far less cautious.
A buck will fight any other buck, it feels is a threat to it's chance to breed...

even a concrete one.

This buck deer sure put a hurtin' on that concrete lawn ornament, but it cost him his life, as you can see in the background.
More noble than being knifed in a seedy bar, I suppose, but the same result.

Edit: It was a 640 pound Elk statue and a 7 point buck. Some places (east) they count the points on just one antler, and some (west) count total points.

That is so funny and dreadful at the same time!

I am not drawing any comparisons whatsoever....That would be dangerous!!

SPUCK  Sunday Nov 22 06:39 AM

The buck stops here.

What a maroon.

I hope that concrete buck had a hunting permit and tags.

Am I a bad person for laughing?

Poor fella, all hormones and no brains. I guess in the evolutionary timescale, the appearance of concrete bucks is so new that real bucks haven't adapted yet.

Seems the buck was right - the concrete buck very much nullified his chances of breeding...

Am I the only one thinking "dinner"?

My uncle has a deer statue in his yard, which I've long wanted to dose with buck lure... I think I won't.

Could have been worse. Just think what would have happened to that poor buck if it had been a concrete doe.

I showed this IotD to my dad, he told me he had just got an email this morning from one of his hunting buddies. He's got a practice target doe in the yard for archery. Earlier this week they found it a little beat up with blood all down its backside. They assume the deer "hurt his weenie". >.< owch

ZenGum  Sunday Nov 22 05:31 PM

I love the way IotD brings the lurkers out.

Sheldonrs  Sunday Nov 22 08:57 PM

For some reason, I'm imagining that the dead bucks last words were "Hold my beer and watch this".

ZenGum  Sunday Nov 22 09:25 PM

Sheldon, I was expecting a lecture on the evils and perils of heterosexuality.

"Hello, State Farm?"

"Dear Penthouse. You're not going to believe this, but..."

I'll bet one of his does got pissed at him and told him to go take a flying fuck at a concrete lawn ornament.

What exactly are backstraps?

And while we're at it, does anyone know what "numbles" are? It is some part of an animal; Tolkien found it when translating some Olde Englisshe poems and couldn't figure it out. I reckon that was because he was buried in a university full of dictionaries and should have gone and asked some hunting-type country folk.

The deer ingredients for haggis.

SPUCK  Monday Nov 23 06:24 AM

Every year someone get gored by a rutting buck that has not only gone into rut but is also psychotic. I'm just glad this buck took himself out and not some farmer or kid he decided was competition.

"...the Vernon County conservation warden tagged the buck with a note that read: lawn ornament fight - lost."

Backstraps are tenderloins, the long, narrow, deliciously tender cut of meat that comes from along both sides of the back/spine area. Most venison-eaters consider backstrap/tenderloin THE best cut of meat on (off?) a deer.
