Is it legal??

21 posts in this topic

I was wondering if it a "legal" to hang deer carcuses from a tree all winter for "feeding" the birds? It seems to me that it would be illegal

( dont ask why).as far as I know you must properly dispose of them, and where would you get one this time of the year except for a road kill.....................

As far as I know it's legal to hang a deer carcass for the birds. People up here do it all the time, and I've never heard different. I believe a DNR permit is required to possess a road-killed deer.

I've seen it done around here as well. Better that then in the ditch like I've seen. I would bet if you asked a sheriff for a road kill he'd let take it home. Might not be the best time of year though, with warmer temps and all. Stinky.

I talked to a C.O. and it is legal if the deer is taken legally or a permit for road kill and no meat is wasted.(See wanton Waste Laws}

Also sounds like a good way to attract other critters of the four legged variety.

I'm lucky, it pays to have good neighbors.

I guess I'd talk to the guy and see if you can get it taken care of, but I'll bet you already tried that.

Good Luck.

I think there are better ways to feed birds than hang a deer carcass in your yard. I think having to worry about all the other animals coming into the neighborhood to feed on it would be a problem.

Same here. Someone threw out the legs and head and other unusable deer parts on my land and my dog found them and had the same gastro-intestinal problems yours did till I followed him one day and found the garbage and was able to haul the parts out. I wouldn't hang a deer for the birds for that reason.

In the city no its not good, out in the country away from neighbors, I don't see it as a big deal.

Hung in a tree the only critter you might get into it is a pine martin.

They're pretty commonly hung in people's yard trees out of town up here, not in town.

All the birds that come to suet will come to a deer carcass. Most are the remains of the deer hunt, not a fresh carcass, so there are scraps of meat and tallow. Pine marten, fisher, any of the smaller members of the weasel family, as well as squirrels, will eat the tallow, and sometimes they get pulled down by wolves or coyotes at night and drug off.

If I lived out in the woods I'd have no problems hanging one like that.

Cousin cleared it with a CO in NW Iowa. Built a Buzzard Bird Feeder. Large pole in the ground with a 8 x 8 platform on top (w/bracing). Uses a ladder to put road kill on top so it keeps most four legged critters away.

After the deer season we usually leave the remains hanging in the trees for the birds. they love it and it is good for them in the winter. I probobly would not do it in town but here at home it bothers nobody else. Do you guys no the definition of a good neighbor?

Or you could just say, as the poet Robert Frost did, that good fences make good neighbors. smirk.gif

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?
