    Shoot it on welfare issues . Your only mistake has been putting it on this open forum . Shut the thread and do the deed . Everyone's happy , and the deers not suffering .

    simple answer is yes you can shoot it if you deem it and keep the meat
    as for the time that rule will apply as you will have a right to prevent any further pain and suffering.

    defy any to offer adverse reply and any good reason why

    Your perfectly within the law and having a second opinion from the farmer is a good thing .

    You are within the law, but inform the police and make sure the farmer is willing to back you on the welfare grounds.
    pss I could give you a good reason why if you really want one in a pm

    You don't have to inform anyone. Go to it, observe it for yourself and if it is suffering then within the terms of the Deer Act you are entitled to use any means at your disposal to end its suffering if you have reasonable belief that in so doing it will cause rapid unconsciousness and death.

    You are entitled to remove the carcass if you have the landowner's consent.

    That said, if it is in a sensitive area with likely onlookers then it would be prudent to notify the police and or secure written consent from the landowner.
