Default "48 hours" continued...

He showed up in the afternoon still packing the one side.

You could clearly see the bloody divot and some blood running down the side of his head in these first 2 pics.

I wondered if he'd show up the next morning having lost the remaining antler but he was still carrying it. I saw him that evening too...still carrying. The next morning, he was out there again...still packing that one antler.

He showed up that 3rd afternoon having finally dropped the other side.
So the whole process took more than 48 hours. Once the deer have dispersed and left the woodlot, I hope I'll be able to find the other side...but a deer can cover a lot of ground over 2 days!!!
