road kill and deer crazies

I heared you Cob, it is in my point of view ok to salvage the meat and horn(antler) for use I see no problem at all with that kind of thing, what always got me was the FLOOD of people who wanted the road kill, fresh stuff just happened kind of thing, not the days old bloated carcuss thing. But to mount it and make up a yarn about I hunted hard to get that bad boy, that is a bit much for me. It lessens a person to do that even if they don't realize it. I mean if a person asks what did you use to get that giant, what do you say Goodyears P225/75R16's

road kill and deer crazies

My freezer was full of venison last year due to a road-kill buck. I have a friend who is a cop, and is kept very busy with deer collisions every fall, several a day. He actually has a long list of names and #'s of people who will come out, clean it in the ditch, and take it away. I'm on the list. He told me last year that while he waited for me to show up at least 20 people stopped and pretty much begged for it. It's funny how the person who hits the deer never wants it, and people that want the venison never hit one.

Yeah that is a good point, guess they are just pissed over the vehicle damage.

Do you butcher your own meat? Reason I ask is because was the buck you took last year pretty blood shot? I suppose it depends on how it was hit, if it was a head impact maybe the entire body would be recoverable.

Took it to the butcher. It was hit in the hindquarter I think. That meat I kept for my dog (he still gets happy when I go to the freezer). Useable meat added up to 90lbs worth. A few of the best roasts I've ever had.

I bet you just don't hear about the people that take the meat they hit because they don't tell any athourities.

pretty sure it's mandatory to report roadkill collecting to the MNR in Ontario

It is snowing hard here today so I was catching up some.
I read what Cob was saying about the lady and the moose.
Well earlier this morning on the local news they had a report about that and the judge said that she will get the next one.
If the other person don't want it. LOL's

That is interesting, Maineguide. Did the judge say why the lady could keep the next one? Seems that if people know they can keep the meat, some people will use it as an excuse to run over game out of season.
