Video: buck survives horror story to be rescued by hunter

WILDLIFE WATCHING -- You think you had a bad night?  How would you like to be tied to one of your rivals while coyotes chewed him up?

I've seen quite a few fascinating videos of hunters rescuing bucks or even bull elk after their antlers had been locked in a battle.

This one isn't the most exciting of those available on YouTube, but it just boggles your mind to think about what the buck went through during the night.

Check it out if you want to see a whitetail buck being rescued after it locked horns with another buck that wasn't nearly so lucky.
