According to a post on the @UtahDWR Twitter, the biologists tranquilized him in order to untangle the mess and then administered a reversal drug before he was allowed to be released back into the wild.

“We’re thankful our biologists removed the rope & rebar from the antlers of a buck in Provo recently!” officials said in a Twitter post.

Utah DWR also issued a warning to ensure ropes, twine, and Christmas lights on your property are secure.
