Carcass'

To bowhunters out there, what do you do with your deer carcass and hide prior to the hides for habitat boxes appearing around firearms opener?

Well what remains of the carcass gets put out in the woods on private land. It doesn't take long to disappear with all the animals around. The hide I usually bring in for a pair of gloves.

Most of my cleaning happens around the metro so I just drop it in a heavy duty bag and put it in the garbage. I've never had a problem.

In Duluth, they encourage us to double bag EVERYTHING we don't use and throw it in the trash. We have to pack the entrails out with us, so they don't want them ending up in a ditch or back alley somewhere.

They go in the middle of the field behind my house. Shortly thereafter we sit in my back yard and shoot yotes. grin.gif

The past several years I've set up a trail camera over the carcass and guts, interesting what you see!! Big hawks, crows, cats frown.gif , coyotes, neighbor dogs. But you almost have to tie the skelton down because they keep wanting to drag if off!! I've also hauled home roadkill deer and set up my trail camera, very interesting.

I almost always dump it back into the woods. I use to throw them by a ditch or creek by the house but the coyote would drag alot of it back up into the yard. Then I would have to clean it all back up again.

ditto up at our cabin. makes for great shooting. We also get foxes and wolves in, so we have to really look it over if it's gray. It's a lot of fun though!!!

As of late, my wifes work dumpster! She is manager of a retail store (I get permission) and I always wondered what garbage guy or other co worker would think if a cat got in dumpster and tore bags open!

Hides go to Gun and pawn in Anoka (I get a free pair of cool leather gloves with wool inside when I turn it in there. One pair of gloves per hide and they are not work gloves, but nice gloves you could wear to Thanksgiving.)

If some one is in inner city and does not want to dispose of remains in own trash can, you could always ask local meat market. They have dumpsters for this kind of stuff and most times if they process deer, they have dumpster just for deer Carcass's.

Good luck and I might try to get some yotes on trail cam this year with remains grin.gif

I too make a pile in the feild next to my house with all my deer carcasses and duck and goose carcasses and then hunt yotes over it. The hides go in the freezer until the Hides for Habitat boxes come out. I take every single hide I can to those boxes, Dad's, brothers, brother in laws, friends all of them. Good way to help the deer.

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
