I know very little about blacktail deer, but from i know, it seems like that is a very big one - antlers and body. Is it a big one?
Sorry about the yellow jackets. Not something you'd expect happen to you while recovering your deer. I am glad you're ok, it could have been worse. Some people are allergic to the stings so you are fortunate. I used to get stung by bees a lot when I was a kid, but it has been a while. I still remember they hurt so I feel your pain.
Good job at getting the deer and getting through a tough situation.
