I've been seeing this deer around the house for the last week or so. He has a rope caught around his head and neck. What can I do to help this poor guy?

That's sad.

What,...The,...Fuck?
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:52:31 PM EDT
I vote to help him, poor bastard.

Help doesn't equal put him out of his misery in this case.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:52:41 PM EDT
Pop him.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:52:45 PM EDT
You could call someone out to dart him and remove the rope
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:54:12 PM EDT
Good Luck. Short of catching it while it is under the influced of drugs, you are out of luck.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:54:24 PM EDT
<shrug> he looks healthy enough...

When his antlers fall off the rope may come along with them.

You cannot get close to this deer. As soon as he hears a sound, he's gone. Is there a tranquilizer gun that is accurate up to 200 yards?

Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:55:18 PM EDT
You probably need to get pretty close to get that rope off. Cover yourself with doe estrus. Let him come to you.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:56:16 PM EDT
I'd call animal control and see if they could help you out with a dart gun.

Or just put a bunch of painkillers in some corn and see if that would work.

Put a cap in his ass...the eat, fresh protein.

Call up the DWR.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:57:18 PM EDT
Either call the game waden or get a deer tag and fill it.

From the pics, I can't tell if the rope is wrapped in such a way that it will come loose when the antlers drop. Doesn't really look like it, though.

That's a young deer, too. He has lots of potential if he can survive. I'd probably go ahead and end it for him, and enjoy the meat.

get someone from a wildlife deparment or whatever you guys call it, in Texas to tranqualize it and remove the rope.

You don't need to "put it out of it's misery"
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 3:58:26 PM EDT
Get an opinion from a Game Warden first.

Oh, just ignore this guy...

This is actually really good advice.... when he get's close enough, coo to him gently, then grasp him tightly around the neck and wrestle the rope off his rack. It's probably not NEARLY as pointy as it looks.

This should end well for all involved.

Looking forward to reading about this in the news.

Shoot him and get the whole deer mounted.

Would make a good conversation piece.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:16:50 PM EDT
MYOFB.


Seriously, he's gonna suffer in that condition. Call the Game Warden or fill the deep freeze.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:18:52 PM EDT
Oh shit, on second look that rope is around his neck I thought it was just around his rack...

Yeah, that not gonna be healthy for the little fella

The rope looks pretty tight around his neck the way it is now. As the rut kicks in and his neck swells up, he's gonna eventually suffocate.
It looks to be causing him some distress already, he appears rather gaunt..

I think you should just buy a license and pop him, or get somebody else to.

Call Animal Control if you don't want to go that route, but that will probably be an expensive circus without success.

Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:21:07 PM EDT
call what ever your state calls the DEC
hopefully they can tranq him and remove it
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:22:54 PM EDT
Call Texas Parks and Wildlife and see if they can help if not shoot him.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:25:04 PM EDT
You came to GD for advice???
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:25:50 PM EDT
reminds me of a crippled bastard that hung around a feeder I had 2 years ago. broken leg from getting caught in a fence.

Bushmaster Predator with 68gr Hornady Heavy Match to the head cured the poor guy. tasted like Deer veal
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:27:07 PM EDT
also, if you have a friend who is a police officer ask them if they have tags for dear motorist hit. here they have DNR tags for people who hit a deer with their car and then decide to keep the deer, shows they didn't poach it.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:28:03 PM EDT
This not any different than finding a deer caught hung up in a fence with a broken leg. Shoot him. Sorry to seem cruel,,,look at the rope closely around his neck,,,he is not going to make it,,,,,,he could even get hung up around a stump and be eaten alive by a predator,,,,not a good day to die-think nuts and neck by two coyotes.

I had a breeders permit for many years in Tx. and darting him IS a viable alternative. About forty (preferably twenty) yds is the max. range I darted from. You will need a pro who`s done this MANY times to help you as the learning curve IS VERY VERY STEEP when darting deer. You can easily kill any deer during the darting process. It takes specialized equipment to dart deer properly such as capture boxes for the deer to be placed in after you dart him. The drugs you need will NOT be available to you unless you go through the state for all the permits req`d. With the game warden`s help you might get a one shot deal IF the game warden is comfortable with the individual you ask to do the dart work. This avenue is probably not going to happen. One deer dying is just not the end of the world.

that actually looks kinda tight

how long has it been that way?

Try to help him, but if that doesn't work... you might have to do something else.

Well it isn't rocket science!
He's got three basic choices:
1. Leave it alone; ignore it.
2. Kill it cleanly and eat it.
3. Have "the Authorities" try to capture and rescue it.

Pick one.

I don't know. Maybe we could text message the deer and ask him.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:38:01 PM EDT
If it's legal, shoot him. If not, take more pics. [shrug]
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:38:33 PM EDT

What are you guys who think "he looks healthy enough" actually looking at???

That deer is well on his way to starvation and death by dehydration.

See how hollow his paunch is and how his hips protrude so sharply? And his neck looks like that of a young giraffe.
Anybody who knows anything about whitetails can see that he's already pretty badly stressed...sorry but he's on the way downhill -big time.

FWIW.. If you decide let your nutz klank and man handle that buck to get that rope off him so he can go on his merry Acorn eating way..

He will FUBAR you 6 ways to sunday most riki tik

DNR probably wouldn't bother coming out. Not worth the cost to them, Texas is full of deer. Best to shoot him and enjoy the venison.
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:47:09 PM EDT
Turn him into summer sausage.

Actually, the photo shows an average 1 1/2 year old Texas buck. If there were no rope tangled up around his head there would be nothing at all remarkable about the way the deer looks.

About the rope, you should shoot him at the next opportunity. The rut will be starting soon and there is a possibility that he will get the rope tangled up with another buck's antlers or get hung up in brush as he is making rubs. This is no big deal. Any game warden would tell you to shoot it after seeing the photos.

Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:49:28 PM EDT
put it out of it's misery and into your freezer
Link Posted: 10/28/2010 4:49:35 PM EDT
That's what that fucker gets for rubbing someones freshly planted and staked trees. (I'm about 85% sure this is what happened)

If you can get a picture of it, you can surely shoot it.

Do that, as others have said.

No, no, he should do just that, and have a "friend" video tape it for Youtube.
