There were a few bones on the surface, like the other half of the pelvis and a femur.
I must have seen hundreds of deer skulls, but I have never seen one as badly damaged as this one. The back of the skull was broken, and the upper palate (roof of the mouth) was also broken.This was very unusual.
The skull was in 32 pieces but I did my best to lay them out. It was so many pieces not because of a trauma which smashed the skull, but because the skull was still growing, and did not have much time to fuse together. Even though I did not get all of the bones, I was still pleased.
