Steve Rebelein forwarded the photo above, which he took Aug. 30 along Silver Cliff northeast of Two Harbors.
“I walk the Silver Cliff bike trail daily and found this buck just off the trail at the base of the trail,” Rebelein wrote. “The cliff rises 80 to 100 feet above where this buck was found.

Below is a photo of the antlers and also a photo of the cliff where the buck apparently fell:
