    Deer Rib Cage

    I don’t know the story behind this photo but I can see that the deer who took this arrow survived evident by how the rib bone grew around the shaft of the arrow. Also, given the angle of the arrow I would also surmise that it was shot from above the animal and that the deer was facing away from the hunter. Not a great and one that obviously didn’t pierce or damage any vital organs allow the animal to live long enough to heal considerably. This should be a lesson to all to take the right shot and not rush it since I am sure this animal suffered some in the time between this wound and it’s final demise.

    the way I see it the deer was facing the hunter as the wider ribs are the front of the animal. The angle is a bit extreme though and still not a great one to take but unfortunately sometimes that happens. Still with ya on the ethical one shot one kill thing. If it’s not broad side or quartering to me with a little more side showing I won’t bother shooting.

  2. Diamonds are beautiful even when they are small… one of the few things wild trout and diamonds have in common.

    To quote the infamous @souldoubtak “If you must catch every fish swimming in the river, you will fish the fly of enlightenment, the Dolly Llama.” #flyfishing #thedollyllama #catchandrelease #alaska #alaskaflyfishing pic credit Ben Haga.
