When a deer is standing out in the middle of a field and daylight is breaking and you are on your father's property. With that in mind can you tell if a deer is a doe or has 3 or 3 1/2 inch spikes.
Sounds like to me, that guy got off cheap, Part of hunting is identifying your target as legal.
As for the improperly tagged deer, it probably depends on whether or not the hunter had a valid permit to hunt deer or not. Seems the person who's tag he used would be up for a fine too. Here's a list from 2011 on fines and penalties for game violations.
