Public-Land Buck Found Dead On A Fence

Brad Gill | March 4, 2015

Judy Hodnett, of White Plains, stopped by the GON office yesterday with a picture of something strange she found in the woods in January. It was a picture of a 10-point buck that she unfortunately found hanging dead on a barbed-wired fence. Her property borders the new portion of Oconee WMA in Greene County, and she hated to see this nice buck die in such a terrible way.

Judy suspects that if the buck did not die quickly, the coyotes probably got to him and finished him off. As you can tell by the picture, the meat has been picked to the bones.
