WOW, I'm not sure what's worse.......the fierceness of nature or the lack of class that people can have. We are supposed to have the highest appreciation of wildlife.

Absolutely one of the strangest stories I have ever heard. We all spend many hours and days hunting these magnificant animals and can go with out seeing such beauty. Behold the power of mother nature.

That really sucks! I live in Ohio and can't hunt this deer season because I dislocated my right shoulder, (I'm right handed), and I can't pull my bow back yet. I would have loved to harvest one of these guys!

Wow, it's a good thing that the discoverer had a good head on his shoulders, otherwise this may never have come to our attention. The title is right though, it is quite a tragedy that three big bucks died. Hopefully they got a chance to pass on their genes in seasons past.

Additional Info

WARNING: The photos in this gallery are graphic in nature and may disturb some readers, but we feel they are necessary to tell the story of this rare natural occurance. - The Eds

To a hunter, it’s a stomach-tightening, bizarre sight. At the same time, it’s a stark example of the potential ferocity and brutality of the whitetail rut. These three Ohio bucks somehow locked antlers while battling near a small creek. When one deer slid into a shallow pool, it sealed the fate for all three, who drowned together, antlers still locked. Steve Hill talked to the men who found and recovered the deer and their combined 400-inches of antler to bring you the story of this sad, almost poetic scene.
