This is a great image for a bunch of reasons. Its one thing to take a photo of a deer, its another to get him jumping a fence, to say nothing of him being such a massive stud. Each of those qualities make this a unique image.

However, this is a technically wonderful photo as well. The Pin point sharpness is unbelievable, the depth of field is perfect, you have excellent leading lines and layers in the composition. I really love the colors. In the bottom third, you have very nice, fresh and deep greens that still look totally natural, so if you did any post production work on this, it was well done. in the middle you have very nice, warm colors contrasting nicely with the buck, and on the top third you have some nice cool colors to balance everything out.

I really love how you can almost feel the texture in the bucks coat. There is such a sharpness to him with such an excellent contrast to the soft background. this is my favorite part of the photo. I applaud you. There is nothing that I can see, that could have possibly been within your control that you could have done to improve the shot, and frankly I am amazed at some of the things you did accomplish in this photo.
