This little guy got fence caught last winter and managed to get out. I decided to not interfere and just hope that he would live. With the coyote volume here I didn’t give him much of a chance. He is getting around nicely and is healthy looking.

Glad he made it, might be frustrated come the rut. Doing somethings with 3 legs might not work out for him. roflmao

I bet he will manage. He hops in my feed pen like it’s nothing. I’ve already named him Tripod.

Tripods weight bearing hip will eventually wear out. In addition, it’ll suck hind tit watching him during the rut. His desire won’t diminish, just his ability to engage.

We have a 3 legged doe in the area, has been around for about 1 1/2 yrs. She seems pretty healthy otherwise. As you said , they are resilient.



A clear conscience is often the sign of a fuzzy memory.

I would recommend the top layer of the pen be anchored with break-away attachments. Fawns usually jump the fence with the back legs pointed forward, thus, stabbing the wire squares.,,older does usually jump with their back hooves pointed backwards. When a deer gets caught it just bends the fence backwards and allowing the animal remove their legs. Then it becomes a small repair just rewire the fence and back in action. I found this happens each year. I also use a barb wire 6 inches above the top wire..also with break-away wire.
I never found a dead deer stuck in my fences. I hope this helps as it worked for me but I'm sure you have a better set up than me. I added this just for grins and may help.

He was in the top 2 stands of barbed wire somewhere but not my fence. I don’t run two top strands for that reason.
