i am a new comer for the forum from Asia.
althrough i am interested in hunting, it seems to me no chance at all as holding guns is against local laws,
still i can learn a lots of knowledge regarding huntiog here time to time.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
