Fresh Meat...Pet Deer Shot in FL...

Recommended Posts

I live near here and have come very close to hitting these deer numerous times. Anyone else ever see them?

FOREST LAKE, Minn. (WCCO) — A Forest Lake homeowner is demanding answers after he said a police officer came onto his property and shot at two deer, without warning.

The Forest Lake Police Department said the officer was acting on behalf of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, who believed the two fawns posed a health risk to other animals.

On Jan. 3, police say they received an email from the DNR advising them of two collared deer near the area of Highway 97 and North Shore Trail. The email advised officers to shoot the deer if they were located, saying they were likely captured and collared illegally.

Around 7 a.m. on Jan. 14, an officer said he nearly hit the two deer while driving near that location. The officer noticed the deer were wearing collars, as stated in the DNR email. He removed his department-issued shotgun and shot the first deer. The second deer ran into the backyard of a home on North Shore Trail.

The officer said he followed the deer and shot it. He said both deer were shot about 50 to 60 yards from the residence.

At this point, the homeowner, Jeff Carpenter, came out of his home and began yelling at the officer, saying the deer were pets.

The DNR is conducting an investigation on the incident.

Carpenter said the DNR should apologize.

I have 2 deer that I have raised since fawns they are legal and registered with the DNR and the state. The rules are really clear if my deer get out I have 24 hrs to capture and return them to their enclosure,after that period the DNR must be contacted and can use any means possible to keep the deer from entering the wild. If they were my deer I would have no hard feelings towards the officer or DNR. They have our wild herd to protect which is much more important then a couple domesticated collared deer. 2c

Well is it ok to shoot the neighbors dog with a collar? I think it may have rabies. Sounds just like the DNR/FL Police shooting the deer cause they could have TB or CWD. TOTAL [PoorWordUsage]! Might as well shoot the deer in my backyard now for the same thing.

This guy lives down the road and I find it [PoorWordUsage] that they shot the deer. The deer roam free just like all the other deer around here.

Nah, I had no problem with the deer. I was surprised to see them with the collars on though. As far as me almost running them over, I'm sure they spent no less time on the road than any other resident deer.

Feel kinda bad for the guy whose pets got shot but keep em under control not running around the neighborhood if they are "pets". 2c rather have a healthy deer herd they probably did whats right

I watched this on the news tonight the way I understood it was the guy for some reason put collars on wild deer. Regardless bad decision.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did.

      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
