Rantoul, KS – This past weekend Franklin County Kansas Game Warden Ryan Twellmann responded to a farm near Rantoul, after a landowner reported seeing two whitetail deer with their antlers locked together.
Game Warden Twellmann found the entangled bucks near the original reported location.
One buck was still alive, but the other buck had unfortunately already died. Using a shotgun and a slug round, Game Warden Twellmann was able to separate the antlers and free the buck from the entanglement.
The buck immediately ran off unharmed and Game Warden Twellmann issued a salvage tag to the landowner for the dead buck.
