Just pulled the card on a game camera and found this poor devil. He's obviously in severe distress and it appears that he has gotten some barbed wire wrapped around his head/antlers and is slowly starving to death. At first I thought it could be CWD, but all the other deer are healthy and normal. Opinions?

Looks like he spent a while getting out of that fence!

Looks like his bottom jaw is wired shut in the first photo. If you can't dart him and remove it, then put him out of his misery.

Poor guy. I'm guessing it's the barbed wire, not CWD. He will most likely be coyote food soon.

Contacted the warden and he said it looks like he got caught in a snare or fence. He says to find him and take him out of his misery and then call him so he can come out and inspect the carcass. I'd say our chances of finding him are pretty small, but if we do, I'll take some pics and also tell you what the warden's comments are.

Good move. What did the warden say about tagging him or not?

The warden said to put the buck down, leave him where he lies, and call him (the warden) to come out and inspect the body. Any decision on tagging him will, I guess, be made at that point. The warden may just want to take him back to the station for his fellow workers to take a look at. Even if we need to tag him that's sure OK. Between me and my extended family, we've got more than enough deer tags to fill all our freezers and supply Hunters for the Hungry as well!

So the warden gave you permission to shoot that deer with a rifle at anytime? Like tomorrow or maybe in March? (not that he is going to make it that long)

The warden urged us to find him and put him down as soon as possible to end his suffering. He didn't say what means we should employ to put him down, nor did he give us any direction on "time" other than "as soon as we can find him." What, exactly, is your point?

I didn't take it as dig at me; I just don't understand the point of your question!

Maybe, just maybe the GW doesn't know for sure the wire is the sole cause of the the deer's poor body condition. Perhaps he'd like to take some samples for testing, just to make sure the deer was otherwise healthy. I'm pretty sure a GW has the discretion to authorize the humane removal of any native game animal in the state in such condition, regardless of season.

I'd get something in writing(text/email) from him before I proceeded. People do forget what they've said from time to time.
