A friend of mine that lives in a large acreage subdivision had this buck coming to eat. At first had sometype of net wrapped up in his antlers then got barb wire tangled up in them. I darted him and cut off his antlers to get the stuff off. If I need arresting I will plead insanity.

If you need an "expert" witness to verify your insanity I will volunteer. No idea as to legal or not, but he might come back to haunt you. up

You should have contacted law enforcement. They are the only ones smart enough to decide if a deer in that kind of trouble should be helped.

Good Deed done. Next time might consider diagonal cutters and a sharp knife just to avoid any complications that is. The way I see it no harm no foul... did a good thing for an animal in a bad situation. up

The animal is still alive. That would be in doubt without your intervention. Hard to find fault with that Don. Well done. up

Good deed Don, that deer could have been a terrorist in disguise but through your investigative techniques you determined otherwise. Bandera is a safer place.

Yes I gave him the reversal and he got up staggered around for a few minutes and left.

Any man that has hands that look like yours and displays a concern for animals like you just demonstrated, has earned the right to make the decision you made.

Well done sir!

Saved him from getting caught in another fence he tried to cross. May have saved him from a miserable death. You had the means that most people donít and the good judgement to use your resources. I say good job.
