DICKINSON COUNTY —A Kansas Game Warden was called out to Dickinson County on Monday for two bucks that were locked together from fighting, according to a social media report from the the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks Game Wardens. It appeared the two had been locked together for some time.

One of the bucks was dead but the other was still alive and full of energy. In order to save the deer that was still alive, Game Warden Colter Silhan used a slug from his shotgun to shoot the antlers of the deer and separate them.

The buck appeared to be in shock for a few seconds but once he realized he was free, he took off running and appeared to be in good health. A salvage tag was given for the dead deer to the hunter who originally called in the incident.
