That one had to hurt, but it’s a risk of the trade sometimes. These animals constantly fight for their lives at any cost they feel is necessary.
Whitetail deer are one of the most iconic animals in North America. They typically weigh from 100 to 300 pounds, with males, or bucks, typically weighing more than females, or does.
Males known as bucks grow antlers each year, which they use to establish dominance and attract mates. The size and shape of the antlers vary depending on the age and genetics of the deer, with some reaching up to three feet in length and weighing over 20 pounds. Antlers are shed each year and new ones grow in their place.
While whitetail deer are generally timid and avoid contact with humans, there have been rare cases of them kicking humans, especially during mating season or if they feel threatened. The kicks can be powerful and dangerous, as the sharp hooves of the deer can cause serious injuries.
I mean, when you think about it, it seems like it’s bound to happen. We are out here chasing these animals, and at some point someone is going to be in a situation where a deer is angry with them.
This hunter found out the hard way when a beauty buck absolutely beat the hell out of him.
This buck is seen sporting its large antler set and repeatedly kicking the man who is rolling around trying to just survive and cover up from the flurry of blows. With the strength to break bones with kicks and puncture skin with antlers, it’s a bit of an uneven match for someone unarmed.
The man made it out fine given the beating he took, but it could’ve been much worse.
