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.

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.

It would probably not be cheap
I know a young man who shot a deer thinking it was a legal doe. Shot it at a distance with open sights. When he retrieved the deer it had spikes about 3 and a half inches long. 3 inch spikes would be legal, he was fined $300.00 for that. He probably won't ever hunt again, just because of that heavy of a fine for a half an inch. That was in Missouri.

Howdy! Probably will be a hefty fine. Depends on the Game Warden and the Judge.
