Guys today my dad and I were taking our weekend trip to the 3d range we practice at and at 10:50am saw a deer in the MIDDLE of a huge field...100 yards away from the closest woods line and only 75 yards from the road. It picked its head up and we saw a decent rack so we decided to turn around and take a look at it through the bino's. When I put my binos on him I saw his body was covered in black tumors. The lower half of his body especially. Then he picked up his head and my goodness!! The entire face of the deer was black, eyes appeared to be completely closed over with tumors. Just felt horrible. I decided to call our DNR and ask what we should do (if anything). They said they would talk to the patrol officer on call and see what he wanted to do. I thought they would want to put him down but they didnt seem overly worried. I honestly thought about shooting this deer from the roadside and believe me I've NEVER thought about doing anything like that. I follow the laws to the letter as our reputations as hunters is all that we have but just as if I hit a deer with my car and knew it would die regardless of what I did and would have to make myself stop its suffering I honestly thought about doing it in this case. The only thing that stopped me was I have NO idea why they would grow these tumors or if it in fact is as bad as it appears. The only thing that I'd feel worse about than watching this deer walk around would be shooting it and finding out it wasnt needed. Anyone have any idea what was going on or what I should have done?
