As every experienced deer hunter knows, a rut-crazed buck will do a lot of strange things.
Including fight a buck that's already been killed.
In a November YouTube video submitted from a Colorado mule deer hunt, a hunter is shown with antlers in his hands, talking to the cameraman and celebrating his kill. But then the ordinary goes haywire at the one minute mark of the video. Out of the darkness another buck enters the scene and locks antlers with the dead buck. The scrap lasts several minutes as the camera man is heard saying, "Hey, get away from my buck! Should we shoot the gun in the air?"
That's one you definitely don't see everyday.
