from what it sounds like this is the question here. someone earlier said the deer was caught on camera at a feeder 2 days after the first shot. if he was at a feeder eating 2 days later, is he mortally wounded and in need of being "ethically" dispatched?

I know Travis to be a Godly man. I believe if anything was done wrong it was by accident . . . . I'm more confident nothing was done wrong.

18 pages in a day is probably more fun but I've been privy to the hunt for this animal for a number of years and i'm betting all will be cleared up and the deer will be over the mantle.

Really????
18 pages read....clicked on a GW video 10 times, watched girls with hoola hoops a few times (gonna leave it at that).....and no resolution or complete story???

I hope it all works out for the hunter, from what others have said about him, he sounds like a stand up guy and a heck of a deer.

This is why I refuse to shoot big bucks, I'm a cull and doe hunter!!!

If one thing the GW's can take away from this is they'll be hard-pressed to find anyone more honest than Travis. If he told me it's raining buffalo dung outside, I'm bringing an umbrella.

I literally will trust this man with my life and he's the only non-military person I know that I would put that level of trust in.

While I'm checking this thread religiously, this is the truth of the matter. To all who are saying "if you know, tell us"...I hope that friends of mine would respect me enough to keep their knowledge to themselves until/unless I want it told. From the little tidbits that have been shared, it sounds like an overzealous GW, who is deciding to work on the far right side of the judgement call. I could be wrong tho...I've been divorced twice 😂

Im not sure of the particulars on this story, but I had pics of a buck that was showing up to a feeder "trying" to eat. I had never seen this buck before I got the pics. You could tell something was up with his mouth but I wasnt sure what. I told anyone that saw him to shoot him, he was a very mature buck so that wasnt an issue. My brother ended up shooting him at a feeder a two miles away from where the pics where taken a few days later. His mouth was very damaged and he stunk to high heaven. Not a rut stink but an infection stink. He strung him up and started skinning him but it was obvious the meat was no good. So I guess my point is that just because he was at a feeder doesnt mean he wasnt in bad shape and in need of being dispatched. I guess it will all come out sooner or later.

I'm sorry for not reading the 900 comments to search out the answer for myself but can someone elaborate on the timeline here...

1. When was the deer killed?

2. When was the deer confiscated?

I'd like to know also. This thread took so much time I forgot about garage ninja. THAT could be the only real answer we get.

I'm sure I'll catch ***** for this but from the little tidbits that have been shared it sounds like the deer was shot, was seen at a feeder eating corn, then shot again 2 days later after legal shooting time, making it illegal

For all I know the information I have stated above was made up by someone on this thread but If any of the above is true, I don't see how the game warden was being overzealous? I understand that the hunter is an outstanding person but illegal is illegal and the game warden has a job to do. Can't let him off because he goes to church every Sunday.

And we wonder why news and Fake news (if there's any difference) have such an impact on our society. Especially with social media.....................

My first post on this thread and have read most of the comments but you sure seem to be doing a lot of speculating on this issue. Why?
Do you know the whole story? If you do please PM me

travis often sent me bible verses and encouragement though the toughest season of my life. I am thankful for his friendship and willingness to help others whether it was a text of encouragement or answering my million plumbing questions, travis was always there. Hope you are ok buddy.

I guess my point was don't go accusing these game wardens of being some crooked POS's who just wanted to hang the head over their fireplace.
