Locked-Up 10-Pointers

One buck was alive; the other was dead and partially eaten by predators.

You never quite know what you’ll see or experience when you set off into the wilds of the Georgia woods—that’s one of the draws that brings a hunter back.

John Hicks certainly didn’t expect to see a buck on his way to his stand Dec. 9 in Ben Hill County. John stepped behind a tree to take a closer look through his scope. To John’s surprise, the deer had his head down. John shot the standing deer and then was shocked to find two 10-pointers locked together. The one that had been on the ground was already dead and a predator had eaten part of his rump—with the live buck attached by locked antlers.
