Father in law and I were walking back to camp from our blinds and talking about how the full moon was hurting us and nothing was moving. Neither of us seen any movement. As he was giving me the “we are wasting our time” speech, I seen a Buck out in the open working his way towards the road. We laughed it off and kept walking to camp parallel to this young Buck. As we got closer to camp, he got closer to the fence at the road. He then started walking towards our camp while watching us walk the same way. Once we got about 50 yards from him, I guess he realized he was about to skillet meat and attempted to jump a low fence with zero success. Back leg got caught between two strands and it rolled the barn wore over itself locking him in and he just hung upside down. I jumped over to the neighbors ranch with a crow bar and once I got to him he gave me this look like “are you going to set me free or beat me with that”. Leg was broke and barbs were dug in that leg. I busted the neighbors wire tie around fence post and put enough pressure on wire to push his leg out. Dummy got up, ran into road, turned around, and jumped back over fence and ran off into the brush dragging his leg.

Thank goodness. When we hunted Ft. McKavett years ago, they put in a new cross fence with 1 strand of barbed on top of goat mesh. It looked like a trotline with deer hung up about every quarter mile. When we built our fence we did not install a top strand. Probably saved a bunch of deer over the years.

I released a doe from our neighbors 4 foot chain link fence about 6 weeks ago. She is still in the neighborhood and we call her "Limpy". That leg will never be the same but she's alive.

We run one barb just over the top of the net and another about 8-10" up. The top barb has enough gap that this is very, very rare for us. However, about 8 years ago I did rescue a fawn hung up like that. Fortunately he'd just gotten hung up that morning and hadn't broken his leg. If they hang for much time, it usually tears most of the muscles and you might as well shoot them.
