Default What caused the injury on the back?

I saw two bucks this past season with the same injuries. No noticeable damage under the hide on this one.

Probably from sparring/fighting other bucks.

+1 to 74adamsmith. You won't find Eagles in America to do that. NICE Buck though. Congrats!

Had a guy try to tell me that was self inflicted. Said he was scratching himself with his antlers.

If you look close he has to broken tines on the side in the leaves. This guy was fighting hard. I think he took a butt whipping.

Ticks. Deer rub the hair off with their antlers trying to get at the ticks.

Maybe a fence? Have seen them go through a four strand fence at what seemed like a 100 mph.

This possibly, I use to have a spaniel that always slipped under the bottom stand of an electric fence to go chasing females, and he kept a bald spot from burned hair on the highest point on his back. I could see a barbed fence making those injuries especially since you've seen more than one deer that way.
