    If you saw a sickly looking animal be it malnourished, obvious prior injury causing majot distress or any other obvious tell tale signs that something is definitly wrong would you take the animal then contact the game warden or contact them first and ask what to do?

    Well if it was in Indiana and it wasn't in season you'd go to jail. If it is in season and you shoot it more than likely it will be taken by fish and game and I think it would still count against your tag (I could be wrong) If it was my choice shoot first and ask questions later...:peace:

    I personally would just shoot it and not say anything, but I live on a large parcel of private rural property and nobody would ever know it. I wouldn't advise you to do what I would do.......:laugh:

    I'd hit it with my car and get a new paint job out of it. :lol: Seriously...I don't like to see anything suffer, so if I honestly thought it was in serious pain and dieing, or had a disease that may infect others I would kill it, and burn a tag. If it had a broken leg or something I would let it be. Deer are pretty resiliant, it would probably bounce back.

    a few years ago i was leaving my parents house and it was the day after rifle season ended and as i was backing out of there driveway i seen a deer. i stoped and looked at it and it was a nice 8 point but it had no lower jaw, just skin floping around. i pulled back into the drive way went into the house to grab my bow walked out and followed it into the woods. i never could get a shot on it and that was the last time i ever seen it.
