Better find “him” a home BEFORE he goes through puberty. Afterwards, he can become dangerous.

Correct. You don't want him around when he goes into rut. By the same token, after being socialized to humans, he likely will not survive hunting season.

An animal sanctuary might take him.

Yeah. He probably won't survive in the wild anymore. The hardest part is training humans to think about what they're doing and then having the discipline not to do it. I grew up in the country when growing up in the country was safe (no meth labs a short piece down the gravel road). Our property was posted, but we never had an overrun. A ten point buck silhouetted in the setting sun is one of the most magnificent sights I've ever seen. My headlights caught his eyes as I came around a blind curve. I stopped, he just looked at me, then sauntered off the road. Nature, if enjoyed for what it is (and husbanded properly) is as good as it gets.
