Roadkill Deer

Recommended Posts

Mr. Pickeral

Im sure this topics has been discussed many times but just wanted to revisit it real quick as I had one quick question.  If you do all the necessary steps in claiming the roadkill deer can you just take the deer directly to a processor or must you gut it and strip the hide off first and do your own processing?  Im aware that many parts of the deer might be damaged, but I would imagine a processor would know that?  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

I might suggest having the discussion with a processor you think you'd use before picking one up.

 

Once you get the possession tag from LE, it's as good as a license.  Whether or not a processor would handle road kill is something I can't answer for them.

Agreed with Wanderer, once you've got your possession permit from LE, its yours. Your processor may not take it. They may also charge you full price to process a deer that is only half edible. 

 

If you've never done it before, roadkill can be a great opportunity to start learning to process the animal yourself and save some  $$ without feeling like you might mess up the only deer you shot this year.

Awesome thanks guys.  Only reason i ask was someone hit one just by my house the other night and just got me thinking.  Only got 1 doe that had to get split with 4 guys this year during hunting season so the freezer is a little thin, but agreed that a deer like that would be good to learn on how to get better at doing it myself.  Thanks

We got a road kill deer this year, We didn't worry about cutting steaks or anything with it, we just cut it and put all the meat in with the rest of the trim from the deer we shot. Usually when we bring trim in they only care to have one tag I know when I brought trim from 3 different deer in last year the guy only wrote down my main tag info.

 

I wouldn't bring one in straight the processor though like powerstroke said it would be good practice. And if you are just cutting meat to make sausage and what not it shouldn't take too long.

 

I know some places charge you  extra money for handling spoiled meat too so at least this way you don't waste your money incase for some reason it is bad.

      We didn't have a problem catching them on fatheads today out of long point in 32ft saugers and walleyes with several slot fish up to 25 inches and nice saugers

      After chasing panfish, walleye and pike for the winter, the trout season has opened. Let the trout chase begin. We were very blessed with some great catches and a fantastic time as a family. We were also blessed by some help from the game warden. Thank you!  Get outdoors and be AWESOME. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

      The Department of Natural Resources today announced leadership appointments in its Commissioner’s Office.  DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen named current Assistant Commissioner Barb Naramore as deputy DNR commissioner. Since 2013, Naramore has overseen three divisions (Ecological and Water Resources, Forestry, and Lands and Minerals) and worked frequently with other divisions on interdisciplinary efforts. Prior to joining the DNR, Naramore was executive director of the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association, where she worked with five states, federal agencies, and stakeholder groups on river-related programs and policies, including a groundbreaking aquatic ecosystem restoration and monitoring program. “Barb has a passion for the full breadth of DNR’s work and understands its importance in the lives of all Minnesotans,” said Strommen. “As deputy, Barb will work closely with me on DNR’s strategic direction, building partnerships with external stakeholders, and fostering our efforts to connect all Minnesotans to the outdoors.” Naramore will oversee the agency’s regional directors, assistant commissioners, and general counsel. Strommen said as she works to create a DNR leadership team, “my primary goal is to ensure that we have both the framework and the individuals DNR needs to implement its critical and complex mission and pursue Gov. Tim Walz’s vision for One Minnesota.” Other appointments:
      Assistant Commissioner Bob Meier will continue leading the DNR’s legislative and governmental affairs efforts. According to Strommen, “Bob will also use his deep knowledge and experience with natural resources policy and programs to oversee the Enforcement and Fish and Wildlife divisions.” Meier has been with the DNR since 2003, serving as legislative affairs director and as assistant commissioner. He was the legislative affairs director for the Office of Environmental Assistance from 1994-2003. He is an avid outdoors person, hunter and angler. Jess Richards, currently director of the DNR’s Lands and Minerals Division, is joining the Commissioner’s Office as assistant commissioner overseeing the divisions of Ecological and Water Resources and Lands and Minerals.  As Lands and Minerals director, Richards helped lead the agency’s Strategic Land Asset Management work, modernized its land records system, and navigated complex minerals development and environmental protection challenges across multiple mining projects.  He is also an avid outdoors person who enjoys camping, hunting, fishing, and biking with his family. Before joining the DNR in 2012, Richards worked at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency for 18 years, serving in a variety of leadership and staff capacities. Randolph Briley will join the DNR as special assistant to the commissioner. Briley will focus on public engagement, outreach and building stakeholder coalitions. Prior to joining the DNR, Briley served for over nine years in Washington, D.C. as Congressman Walz’s agriculture and natural resources policy advisor and legislative director. During this time, Briley worked on passage of important federal conservation policy, including the 2014 Farm Bill Conservation Title, the Sportsmen’s Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Enhancement Act, Land and Water Conservation Fund Reauthorization and the National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act. The DNR will announce a third assistant commissioner and other leadership appointments soon. The third assistant commissioner will oversee the divisions of Forestry, Parks and Trails, and Operations Services. “I’m very humbled and honored that these outstanding public servants have agreed to work in the Commissioner’s Office,” Strommen said. “They share a passion for the DNR’s mission and will provide a diversity of deep experience and perspectives.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone been out on Lake George lately near Oak Grove?  I'm heading out there on Saturday and I was wondering if people are driving out there.  I know that channel off of the landing can be sketchy.  Thanks in advance.
