    I received two pictures of one of my up and comers today and it appears there may be something wrong with him. There was a doe that came through about two minutes prior to him but he looks to be hurt. I don’t see blood so I thought I’d see what you guys thought. Thanks in advance!

    Agree ^^^. Swelling actually appears to be below the knee. Maybe a new injury or may be be an old healed fracture. Seems to be bearing full weight on it so if that's all he has he should be OK.

    What ever it is he's definitely not feeling well, not sure the injured front leg, which looks healed, has anything to do with it. He looks like I feel when I have to go to work instead of a tree stand ;)

    The pic in the plot just looks like a tired, worn out deer. The other one almost looks like there is a buck just out of the frame that he's squaring off with. Back humped up, head down.

    Well I got this picture on another Plot this afternoon. He looks rested and feeling better. This was at 4:45 then at 5:07 he was back at it chasing a doe. Thanks for the input and replies. I’d say worn out rut buck is the reason for his looks last night.
