Buck with limp

I have a yearling buck that has been limping on his front leg for a couple days now. It looks to me that it's his shoulder. Not sure if it's dislocated or what. No sign of any wound or anything. Should I keep monitoring it and see if it heals on its own, give him meds, or call the vet? Thanks for any advice

I would leave him alone and he should heal by itself.

Cervid: deer
Yearlings always find ways to hurt themselves. Especially their antlers.
Jack is correct, just wait and watch what happens.
No reason to add up costs on vet bills.
