Sounds like the guy that shot the deer may have been pushing his luck. If I was the landowner I think I would be a little upset too but if the landowner is having him charged because he wants the antlers then that's just dirty.
I dont know how it works there but here in Montana the land owner would have no chance of getting the antlers,the F&G would sell them at an auction they have at the end of each year with all the seized trophys and gear from F&G violations.Sounds to me like they guy had permission to hunt,just not permision to shoot a new state record

My Ex-wife actually sent me the link I posted earlier as a poke and jab at me.
