As Promised

I am a little surprised that there is anything newsworthy going on with our old friend the dead deer, but there is.
His antlers are gone!
Someone sawed them off and apparently replaced them with flies.

This isn't a big mystery when you think it through.
During the rut bucks will fight for dominance, to score with the sexiest does.
The sound of clashing antlers attracts other bucks.
Hunters rattle real or fake antlers together for the same reason.
A hunter must have wanted some free real ones for this purpose.

Waste Not, Want Not.
