SO I WAS WONDERING TONIGHT, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF I WOULD SHOOT A DEER CLOSE TO SUNSET, AND COULDN'T FIND IT. I GO OUT IN THE MORNING TO TRY AND FIND IT, AND BUMP IT. I HAVE TO LET A INJURED DEER TURN IN TO COYOTE FOOD ? I COULDN'T FINISH IT OFF BECAUSE THE SEASON IS CLOSED, IS THIS CORRECT. BECAUSE IT WOULD BE PERCEIVED BY SOME THAT I WAS STILL HUNTING CORRECT ?


To hell with them fellas. Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms.

I believe you are correct in your assumption.

We might be spoiled up here, but I know the local co will go with and verify the hit and help guys try to recover the day after season closes. If he gets tied up he asks that he is kept updated. Most of the dnr guys are more than willing to help, people need to ask and try not to circumvent the law.

And then what, if it’s still alive? CO puts it down for you? Interesting conundrum, never though of this happening but I’m sure it does all the time.

I agree a "recovery" effort while accompanied by the local CO would be acceptable DNR practice. Not sure this would include using a weapon to put down a wounded yet still fleeing deer.

As long as you stop typing in all caps, do whatever you want. Man that shit is annoying.

But no more than the daily spam.

But yes... deer season ends when deer season ends. Wink

Even if CO said "tough crap", for me that would be a case where legal and ethical don't line up and I go with ethical.

X2... at the very least you go look unarmd. Nothing illegal about that. If you bump thedeer th next day and it appears to be ok, it will probably live. If you find the deer and it's dying and sufferring, you call the CO and explain the situation. Pretty simple.

Agreed. No different than somebody finding a crippled/suffering deer bird hunting and having CO or Deputy finish it and issue salvage tag.

legal, ethical can cost. a few yrs ago, a fleeing buck ran onto the ice and into a path cut by duck hunter's boat. after watching it struggle for an hour, our crew which was boat equipped to exit the lake point motored out and reduced the exhausted buck to bag from a stationary boat. a concerned local citizen turned us in to TIP, and hours later a ticket was issued because we had used a motor to go to the deer. Oars were too wide to get into the water, and I am sure the animal would have succumbed had we towed him to shore and tried to release. We ponied up the fine for the infraction and thanked the concerned individual for his interest in our business, in that we knew he hunted the same area the next season. doc


How come there is never time enough to do things right when there is always time to do it over again? doc

This is an isolated case, but it might give you some idea where you stand.

A few years back my cousin arrowwed a decent buck on the last night before 1st slug season. He bumped the deer that night and knew it ran into the next section. So he called the game warden to see if he could trail it in the morning and put his bow tag on it even though bow season was closed. The warden told him that if it died from the arrow then yes he could, but if it was still alive it was fair game for the slug hunters. My cousin did find the deer dead at 1st light. I believe the game warden even met him at the river that morning to see how it went.
