On my way to the butcher shop w/two legal deer, I come up on this 6pt in a ditch laying down on a state 2 lane road. As I slow he turns to look at me. Turn around in two drive ways so I on the same side as he is and get out to check him. He can not get up and is balling. Seems as though either his back or hind legs are broke, and has no visible marks on him, no lost hair or cuts. All legs are folded under him like he would just be laying in the woods. His front legs came out as he tried to get up. I go to the truck and load up two rounds and put him out of his missery and used my buck tag on him. Go to the butcher shop then the check in station and dressed him out when I got home, did not want to do it in that blasting winter storm along the road. Was I wrong to take him and use my tag? No one has questioned me but one guy here at work shooting that chose to the road. I checked for cars and people first. On the bright side he was approx. 160-180lbs but may have some truma loss when butchered.
