Son shot small doe today...

and it was already shot a few weeks ago. It's front leg was broken ( it was dangling - it was hit about 6 inches above the hoof ) that's why he targeted that deer. We'd figure we would take it not knowing if it would live or not. We gutted it and the smell was horrible. I think infection set in throughout the body. I don't think we should eat the deer but wanted to get another opinion... I hate to waste a deer... never encountered this before. Your knowledge would be greatly beneficial. Thanks in advance.

My motto is if in doubt throw it out. If it smells bad, then it is bad.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Call your local warden and show them the deer and let them have a smell. If it's no good they'll likely issue your son another tag to extend his season.
