Muzzy Moment: Whitetail Swingers

Muzzy Moment: Whitetail Swingers

What happens when a buck gets his antlers stuck where they don't belong?

One Wisconsin buck found out the hard way. While feeding underneath a rope swing the buck somehow managed to tangle his antlers in the swing. Frantic to free himself, the buck fought the swing for nearly an hour before calming down long enough for the resident to loosen the rope.


But, believe it or not, that was not the only incident involving a rope swing. Near Alexandria, Ohio, a similar incident unfolded as a buck also found himself in the same predicament. It took several people using a saw to free the buck.



As far as anyone could determine, these whitetail swingers suffered no long term affects from their encounters. Watch the action unfold in this Muzzy Moment segment.
