i'll ask here first then consider calling places,but ever since so much has been made out of CWD i was told that some states prohibit or restrict the way you transport game through the states,is anyone aware,or heard of this?
I've never heard of that, at least not here in colorado. i know some areas of our state require testing, but i've never heard anything about transporting it. chances are, you're not gonna know if your meat has CWD unless you get it tested so i don't think it matters how you transport it. I would check the other states though just to make sure
there are restrictions if you are a resident of Minnesota and harvested game in some areas of Co.,Wy. Ut.,Wi. and others.http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/natural_resources/animals/mammals/deer/cwd/bah_import_restriction.pdf
there is a map and a listing of requirements on the Minnesota website. (in case your interested and it may effect you)
In California, you can bring in meat from anywhere. However, anything that could have brain or spinal tissue is prohibited. To bring back horns off a freshly killed animal, it must be a clean skull cap. No part of the spine is allowed.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
