I have seen a fair number of deer stuck in fences by a leg, where they jumped over and put a foot though the mesh twice and hung themselves. They were always dead and decayed.

Tonight, we were driving home from shopping and I saw a deer standing by the left side of the road. I slowed down to a slow crawl as we approached and the deer just kept standing there, only a few feet from the road, with its face pushed into a fence. I realized it was a buck with it's antlers stuck through. It moved its head very slightly as we passed. I think it was worn out.

As soon as I passed it, I thought about backing up to take a picture, but figured I would panic it.

I had Diane call the sherriffs department.

Have any of you seen a buck do that?

I haven't personally. I know several who have. Recently there was a big buck with Christmas lights tangled in its antlers.
My kids uncle and his buddies recused 2 bull elks that were fighting when they got tangled in the barbwire fence.

In my parents old neighborhood, our neighbors 2 houses down kept having their Christmas lights pulled down, every single night. One of the local police officers parked down the road a ways and watched and realized a herd of deer were coming from the woods across the street and getting tangled in the lights while eating their bushes and trees. They tried spraying a bunch of smelly products, hanging soap, and putting out hair clippings, but nothing helped. They ended up taking their lights down a few days later.

I called the sheriffs department to see what happened to the deer. Apparently it got out on its own.. It was not there when they arrived.

I killed a nice 8 point buck that was caught In a fence.
Was heading down the road when I came on this traffic jam. As I pulled up I could see what every one was gawking at. I figured there was no way you could get that deer out of the fence without getting hurt. So I did the deed most of the gawkers were k with It but I did get some nasty remarks. It was during bow season.

Glad it got out. That's wild Keith.

Come to think about it most elk we've killed, fall in the thick scrub oak and rose hips patches. Talk about stuck and tangled. It makes quartering fun lol.

I actually saw where 2 dogs had jumped a fence and both were hind leg caught. One was already dead but I got the other one free but I'm not sure If It made It or not.

I found a deer where It had jumped a downed tree and landed In a in a clump of trees and got wedged there. It was about 4' feet off the ground. There was nothing but hide and bones.

I drove by where I saw the stuck buck at today and that section of fence was missing, but the posts were still there, with what looked like some new metal posts put in. I suspect that the buck damaged the fence, getting lose and they are replacing it or that he pulled off and dragged away around 50 foot of fence.
