I have seen bucks and does lay their head back on their flank for short periods of time but I have never seen a healthy deer with its head on the ground...it might happen, just is something I haven't seen!


Yea, not sure if anyone has ever seen it. I just remember reading in a Benoit book that they sometimes track a buck into it's bed and find the impression of the buck laid out and rack laying in the snow...

Would love to see an actual picture of it though.
