Mule deer buck roughs up dead foe

HUNTING -- Although the story in the video doesn't totally add up, this footage illustrates the power and violence two rutting mule deer bucks devote to battle -- even if one of the bucks is dead.

The hunters probably picked up a rifle sooner for self defense just in case the attacking buck decided they were worth fighting, too.

A mule deer buck is a big load to pack around, but this buck whips his deceased foe around as though it were a rag doll.
