The buck didn't stop here: Rick (Frankie Avalon) shoots a buck and carries it on his back up to where his father (Ray Milland) is standing. Rick lets the buck drop off his back, and it hits the ground and rolls behind him, until it disappears off screen. Camera angle switches to a close-up of Rick and his father talking. Then there's a wider camera shot as both father and son turn to look at the buck, but the buck is now lying on the ground almost right next to Rick. See more
