These photos came in from Phillip McGowan of Bloomington, Ill. Here's the story behind them in Phillip's words.
"Both bucks were locked at the head due to a freak sparring accident that would ultimately be their last. The antlers were so intertwined that after shooting the smaller deer of the pair, the larger deer dragged the smaller deer backward until I was able to fatally shoot the second deer. Eventually these deer would have died and someone would have came across the two skulls cleaned by scavengers. However, to actually see both deer alive and for a split second observe how they moved as a tandem, avoiding the entire bow hunting season and the first season of shotgun hunting, is an honor and a story I will pass on for generations to come."
