North Dakota Harsh Conditions Kill Deer

It's been a tough winter back home this year, but I can't remember seeing the results as illustrated with these photos. You would occasionally come across dead deer walking for pheasants and would always see pheasants frozen solid from an overnight low reaching the 75 below windchills.

These photos were taken from a landowner removing the deer from the fields after several continuous days of COLD! Nature at work!

Those are very sad pictures to see but like you said, nature at work.

Wow, that is hard for me to take in! I agree with Rick and you in that it must be nature at work. God bless those who have braved the winter season in North Dakota.

These are hard photos to stomach, but it's simply nature. It's a good reminder that life is cyclical.

Its amazing how I never really thought about this kinda stuff while growing up in it...you just don't know any different. Crazy thing is how much I miss it. The cold and all.
As hard as it is to take...this picture didn't even make a dent in this particular farmers deer population.
