It was going to get too warm to keep hanging a deer, so I started skinning only to find that my deer was bad. It was full of infection from what I am guessing was a vehicle hit. There were no wounds, just a nasty infection. I did not see any sign of it when field dressing or washing it out but that was in the dark. The conservation agent took one look at it and called in so that I could get another tag.
I drove to Wal Mart, got a new tag, went home and cleaned up, went to my river bottom stand and sat for 20 or 30 minuets when a nice 9 point came running through chasing two does. I'll let him hang tonight with bags of ice in the chest cavity and butcher him tomorrow evening.
I'll get some pictures on the Photo thread.
