Heck no! I don't like seeing an animal suffer anymore than the next guy but I sure ain't gonna risk my hunting privileges over it. The coyotes will take care of it. Thats nature. It isn't always pretty.

call the game warden. sometimes they even give the go ahead to put it out of its missery and then they come out and deal with it legally but call the game warden first!!!

No tag no shoot for me. I hate to see animals suffer but I also just can't abondon the laws either. Even if I thought itwas the best orright, it is illegal and therefor to me it isn't the right thing to do under the circumstances.

If I didn't have the proper tag, I would pass. The loss of property and hunting rights is just too much to risk.

that's a tough one! In all my years of hunting, have never been put in that spot. I have however dispatched wounded bucks, ending my hunt, but never doe w/only buck tag possession

Call game warden.In the eyes of the law it would be considered poaching if you take a doe under those circumstances.Like Introc said the coyotes will take care of it.
