Many people think that deer hunting is a brutal hobby, and for anyone who doesn’t like the thought of killing an animal, that’s perfectly fair. It’s not for everyone.
But I will say this… a clean shot through the heart is far less brutal than what can happen in the wild.
Exhibit A: These two mule deer in Arizona.
Captured by MuleyBull Outfitters during a hunt in Arizona, these two rutting mule deer engage in a brutal fight to the death, although it is clear from the start that the older buck appears to be far outmatched by the younger, more powerful buck .
This fight started over a doe, except when the older buck finished fighting, the younger buck would not stop.
Long story short, if you mess with this Buck’s wife, you can’t get away with your life.
We could probably do without the goofy dramatic music, but if you’re looking for a front row seat to nature’s wildness, look no further.
