Wounded Deer at work - what to do- .227 took him out.

28 posts in this topic

I pulled into the parking lot today at work in Golden Valley and noticed a deer in the woods. A buck looks like it was hit by a car. Gimping around. His antlers were all broke up. He is still laying there (it's been 3 hours). Stands up every once in a while to lick his wounds. Do I just let him follow his course or would you call the police or DNR??

Feel bad for it. From the looks of it a broken front leg and wounded rear quarter.

Call the police.

Last thing you want is that thing getting up and gimping into a road again.

Yeah, that does suck to see that.

I would call the DNR. They are going to know what to do better. They will probably take it for the venison donation program.

A friendly peace officer took care of him. The right call. The buck wasn't very healthy. If you can get here in an hour, the office left his card to issue a tag smile Wow, big mature deer with some crazy horns.

Thanks for the advice.

How messed up is he? I'm not far away and could get over there. I assume the deer isn't gutted yet...

Can you get a pic of it with a camera phone or something?

Was your office building all looking out the windows like the kids on the school bus in Napolean Dynamite when that farmer shot that cow?

LOL

LOL...

Needless to say, some of the female co-workers didn't like to hear the shots.

I think one of the warehouse guys is going to take it.

The kicker is I just took a co-worker out there and not 2 feet away from the dead dear there was an even bigger buck making a scrape. I couln't beleive my eyes. 12 pointer, heavy heavy mass. Got within 20 yards of it. Went running into the Tennant property. Boy I wish I had my camera phone.

They have a better chance in the city with no one shooting at them!! Just have to watch out for cars.

I'm just West of you and I watched a big buck all day one day a couple years back. It was cool because we could look down on him all day while he sat with this doe. The one I watch was a real nice 10 pointer with an impressive rack but probably not AS big as the 12 you are describing.

I work not far north of you guys, right off 169.

Same deal. Amazing the number of deer and the size of some of the bucks over the years we have seen.

And also sad how many are busted up from car hits too.

Just curious, do you work at General Mills? In 2004, when I moved to Minnesota, I lived in a townhouse right by General Mills (just SE of 169 and Medicine Lake Road). There was a wilderness area there where I saw deer. If I renember right, the General Mills parking lot bordered this area.

on this same subject my buddy is working on posting a pic of a 12 pointer taken from his front door south of 252 on brookdale. His townhouse borders a little city park, that thing is huge. Years ago I lived in fridley and there is that nature preserve by the railroad tracks there east of East River Road, can't tell you the huge deer you could see in and around there.

I the buddy of yopaulypinkfloyd. My wife took that pic. The next night he was about 15 feet from my front door. I went out to walk the dog and as soon as we stepped out the door, we slowly stepped back in. I couldn't get another pic though.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
