What if you are not fortunate? Like i believe i am. I am almost in the situation described in the second half of your response.
Your point is well taken, greekfreak. I was responding to your first series of questions which left some question about the circumstance behind the recovery of a dead deer. You leave no doubt about the circumstances in your reply, so I can appreciate your policy of not giving dead heads back to the doofus and his doofus friends. However, it sounds like you know who the bad actors are among your neighbors. While you might not want to reward their bad actions, you might want to cut some slack to someone who you know is an ethical hunter rather than apply your rule universally. The only other thing that comes to mind is that perhaps you’re finding a lot of dead deer on your property because your neighbors are afraid to track a wounded deer across your property line. My thought is that they may just quite their tracking efforts at the fence line, so the deer never gets recovered until you find it. At the end of the day, it’s your property and your rules. I’m sorry you’re being put in this position in the first place.
