    Don't stress mate you wont get in any trouble if it was on doc land
    If there was a deer farm at the bush edge and you wanted to get in the farmers good books put the eid tag in his mailbox.

    If it was on doc land it is fair game. No you cant get in trouble. Cant help with how tender it was. How long did it hang before butchering? What state was it in when shot?

    As above.

    A mate had a few get out a few years back, about 3 months later he got a ring from some guys who had shot one and traced it back to him.
    It had gone bloody miles away threw prime habitat.

    Tag in the ear

    Could be an old animal. Was it stressed before you shot it? Only things I can think of.
    Only tough venny I have had wasn't mine and was helicopter shot.

    For the most part a deer fence is more of a psychological barrier to deer rather than a physical barrier. I have seen both stags and hinds under pressure clear a deer fence and have even seen a four month old fawn get close to going over on one occasion. They are also quite adept at digging, mostly under gates but fences also.

    Yep you certainly don't want them doing that shit. The young fawn I referred to got its front hooves over the top but it's centre of gravity was low on the near side of the fence so it fell back and unfortunately landed awkwardly and broke its back.
