This poor guy stepped out this morning. Nice animal, however he has a mild problem with his huevos. What are his chances of survival?

Yikes, that doesn't look good.
I believe this is caused by a hernia and the intestines start to drop down. Not a scenario he can recover from.

Great looking buck, probably nothing wrong with his meat unless his situation worsens (e.g. infection, rupture)

Wow, that is crazy. What ended up being the cause? Currently sitting in the same spot this afternoon with my youngest brother to re-evaluate the deer if he steps out again. (BTW got to love iPhones)

0% chance of surviving if he stepped out in front of me - with or without a hernia!!

Well maybe a 5% chance, I guess I could miss.

This deer was on a high fence ranch. They had been watching him for a couple years and every year it keep on getting bigger till they decided to go ahead and take him out, the other bucks keep running him off. If he were on a low fence ranch dont know if he could have ever made it over any fences, My advice would be to take him out it will just get worse for him as time goes on with the problem.

It was in fact a hernia. He did step out and we decided to take him. Heck of an animal. He ended up taping out at 162 7/8 - beams were a little longer than expected.

that's what you get for not letting them pee in the pasture.. he's full up. :)

and now how in the heck are able to get out hunting so much with a little one? huh, huh? LOL

The intestine drops down through the canal where the testicles drop during puberty. Same thing can happen to human males. Not sure if that is the exact problem but looks pretty likely.

Edit: Sorry missed the confirmation post.
