Deer season doesn't open for several more weeks. However, vehicular smashing of deer happens all the time. We didn't see the crash, but this one was fresh - its mother was still hanging around waiting for the dead fawn to recover.
It was not going to recover - the good doctor determined that it had multiple broken bones and an exploded liver. And was already dead.
So he tossed the fawn in the bathtub he was hauling in the back of his pickup. Fortunately he had a state wildlife biologist along if an explanation to game wardens was called for.
He recovered what meat there was.
