Oh and subby that was a handgun, not a rifle.  You can tell by the lack of it being a rifle.

He shouldn't have locked their antlers with his rifle in the first place.

fragMasterFlash: I thought SOP in that situation was to startle them with a gunshot so that they will break free from each other no matter what the cost?


The antlers were physically intertwined. They really weren't fighting anymore, they were just trying to get unstuck from each other.

Jeff5: Moniker o' Shame: Does this mean that the game warden gets to mate with the doe as he proved himself superior to the two bucks that managed to lock antlers?

Gets to?

Nice shooting. Now wasn't that better use of time than killing the beasts?

foxtail: That can kill the deer easily. The concussion of the beam being hit by the bullet can knock the deer out and even cause brain damage.


Give them a chance or just kill them for the meat for the local food bank.  Office chose to give them a chance.  Either option was viable.

The deer already routinely consent to smashing their skulls together. It would be unfortunate to inflict additional brain damage, but it doesn't seem out of line with their normal level of risk tolerance.
