Not an embarrassment at all. The tag is for a leagal deer. If he wants to use it for a spotted fawn, spike buck, or a 4 1/2 year old doe or a 190" buck....who cares. The tag is not yours, its his. If your going to say there is no reason for this unless he is starving, then why do you hunt....go to kroger. None of us have to hunt for food we all have a grocery store we can go to.
