    Like the title says, If somebody hits a deer while driving, is it legal to put the animal out of its misery or no?

    Nope unless you have a hunting license for a deer and it is during hunting hours and deer season. And even then it could get dicey as you might be busted for hunting from a road depending on what type of road it is.

    Running it over is much quieter than a gunshot. That's all I know.

    I've put on a lot of miles, and then a deer ran into me. That's why this year, I'm taking up hunting. With any luck, I'll be getting a block permit.

    I really hate deer.

    Tire iron works.... I have done that... But be careful if it can kick you it will and then you will need a hospital.

    You've seen the people who leave there V-blade plows on their trucks all summer, that's not because they're anticipating snow (although it could happen up here), but they're great at gently assisting those deer to the side of the road that aren't quite fast enough to make it on their own.

    often takes awhile for LEO to get there.

    all i can say is ask the 911 operator if you can put it out of its misery,that you dont want it to suffer,make sure the operator checks with a LEO.

    they say its ok,by all means do it any way you see humanely fit.
    not a lawyer, dont take anything i say as legal advice.

    I wouldn't. There's stupid things like 'discharging a firearm in city limits', etc. that they can try and bust you with for example (if you're in city limits)

    Even if a 911 operator gives me permission, I'm not discharging my firearm unless I have good reason to. A 911 operator may tell you to go ahead, however, that's not their call to make imo, after all, they're the ones taking all of the MWAG calls, right? I have a feeling something like that could come and bite you in the ass.

    Personally, I'd just run it over again. Better to be safe than sorry.

    In my trunk I carry an emergency first aid kit complete with CPR mask and blood pressure cuff, an emergency road side tool kit, and this thing:



    It's a crash axe that can be found in many aircraftcockpits. I keep it in case I have to break out a window or cut through a car door (it makes short work of sheet metal). I'm thinking it would work ok on a deer if the need arose.

    Here's a tip for you. NO ONE can "authorize" you to break the law.

    It's illegal. Period. Get over it.

    Maybe it is just me... but there is no way I'm going to get close to any animal that is thrashing around in agony.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    OK Sorry This IMO : Who states it is Breaking the Law to Call 911 and be told LEO on the way , No LEO So Do What 911 requests as long as Safety [ One is NOT Hunting a MVA with deer } Culling is part of life if a wild animal is injured and suffering .

    If a shot goes off in the middle of the night and nobody hears it, did anyone fire a gun? I'm not endorsing illegal behavior, but it all depends on where one is. The boondocks is a good place to be.

    What does a person do if one is in an area where cell phones don't work (we have that here in Pennsylvania due to the mountains). What if the animal is in agony? Would you let it suffer?

    Sometimes it's best to do the right thing even if it isn't the lawful thing.

    Someone should videotape a struggling deer who has been hit by a car, and send the video to the legislature. Include captions like, I had a gun, but it wouldnt be legal, so I let it lay there and kick for 2 hours.
