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.

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
