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.

He probably won't ever hunt again, just because of that heavy of a fine for a half an inch. That was in Missouri.

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