Old buck looking rough.

Dang....thought South Florida had some scrawny deer. Maybe a parasite or worms keeps his weight down?

Likely on his last legs.

When I saw the post name, I thought “I also have some scrawny ones I can share pics of” - but mine don’t come close.

If he is gonna die, my prayer is that he does it with little pain and suffering.

Maybe the green up will help him....

Jim between plots and feeders he hasn’t been hungry from lack of exposure to food in several years. I bet he is an old fella
 
Seen a real old doe in that same area last year.
Almost hit her. She never even looked but strolled across the road.
She had a much better looking doe and buck behind her.
Not as bad as your buck just older than dirt.
 
And the rack looking screwy for 4 years. You have fed them the whole time, so genetics do make a difference.
Take him out if you think thats best for your management.

I think it’s going to happen naturally.
