Illinois Buck Gets Combined—And Survives

By Dave Hurteau

From the News-Democrat:

Wayne Harre, of rural Nashville, said his father, Arnold, was shelling corn in the evening when he came upon a monster buck straddling three rows of corn. . . .

The buck didn't budge when Arnold Harre approached with his combine. Because it was dark, Harre didn't see the buck in time to stop. It became caught on the corn header.
Harre . . . eventually reversed the corn header and dislodged the buck, which sprinted into a nearby timber. . . .

"That's the dangest thing I've ever heard," he said. "There's so much power behind one of those corn heads, I can't believe it didn't break one of it's legs."

Wow that's a story for the grandkids!

I'm glad it turned out well for all 3 involved
(The deer, the combine and the farmer)
The damage the bone and tissue could've done is unknown.
The mess and smell/clean up would be intense.
