Even if the fish aren’t biting, the ducks aren’t flying and the pheasants aren’t flushing, Doug Smith says any day spent outdoors is a good day. A Minnesota native, he’s been covering the outdoors for the Star Tribune since 1995. He considers walleyes fried over a campfire to be gourmet cuisine.

Amazing video of Kansas man trying to release ensnared trophy buck

When whitetail bucks fight, several outcomes are possible.

One deer gives up and runs off. One deer might be seriously wounded or even killed in the encounter. And occasionally the bucks will lock antlers during the fight, spelling doom for both.

Rarely do people find or witness such an event. But a Kansas man last month encountered two nine-point bucks whose antlers were solidly locked. Amazingly one of the deer had been mostly eaten, apparently by coyotes, while the other was exhausted from the struggle but uninjured and still entangled with carcass.

The Kansas City Star posted the story and incredible video the guy took with his cellphone of him trying to release the ensnared buck. Check it out:
