After letting the arrow fly, a bowhunter watches as a buck's antlers go flying from his head.

Video: Minnesota Buck Sheds Antlers On Arrow Impact

Hunters have been known to capture some crazy things on camera during deer season, but this may be one for the books. In the video below, a Minnesota bowhunter lands an arrow in a mature buck on the last day of the season (December 31). However, seemingly upon impact from the arrow, the bedded buck sheds his antlers as he jumps up and runs away.

More than likely, this buck was just ready to shed his antlers at any given moment, and when he jumped up after being shot with the arrow, that triggered them to fall off. Minnesota bucks usually begin shedding their antlers in mid-January, so this guy was a couple weeks ahead of schedule.
