DNR took our deer.

Recommended Posts

My younger brother went out last Friday and shot a little spike with his bow but it ran into a rufugee area. He and my older brother went and got two conservation officers and tried to track the deer down but never found him. The officers then said that if we were going to come back and look for him don't bring any guns or archery. So the next day we went back out there and searched again but without luck. The following morning my brother went and hunted for about 3 hours in his stand and saw a hiker poke his stick at something by the road. My brother then went to check it out and there it was the head of the spike he shot a couple days ago. Only him my older brother and the conservation officers knew about the deer in the refugee area. It would have been his first deer with his bow and someone had to ruin it. Oh well there's about a month and a half left hopefully it was for the better.

I understand that only you guys & the DNR officers new about the deer, but couldn't someone else have stumbled onto it & took it? Why would it have to be the CO's? It sure seems like there certainly could have been someone trespassing in the refuge that found it.

Just a thought cause why would someone risk getting caught in there? That place we hunt has too many CO's.

If it was a CO, they wouldn't have left just the head. They would have confiscated the whole animal. Besides, I would think the head is more valuable to the DNR so they can test for CWD and age the deer.

ok then why would the CO take your deer but leave the head?? Just a thought...You did say it is a refuge..people can still walk through the refuge I would imagine...Bad deal but at least it didn't go to waste!! Sounds like someone found a treat on the trail....Hopefully next time you can locate the kill before the scavengers do!!! wink.gif

I agree with Ozzie, you've got no proof that the DNR cut the head off your deer and took the body. In fact it sounds like someone took the deer and probably cut the head to try and claim it as a doe.

Maybe I should take the other side and say you must've found your deer and cut the head off and now you're lying to cover it up. Does that seem any more likely than the same CO's that helped you look for your deer came back to steal it without the head?!?

This thread should be deleted.

Maybe not delete the thread, but the DNR isnt going to leave body parts.

Heck, its illegal for the public to dump carcasses/parts.

Someone either found the deer you guys shot, or it was parts from a similar deer that just happened to be dumped near your spot.

If I knew I killed a deer and failed to find it, I would consider my hunt done, unless I had bonus tags. If I ever fail to retrieve a duck of pheasant (very rare, thankfully) I count that bird towards my bag.

just my .02

"That place has to many COs" ???? How many is that? Only if I was up to no good would that concern me.

I'm with you on that one Cat... There are NEVER enough CO's... Every time I am checked for anything I always than them for their time! I can immagine their job to be one of the most thankless on earth!

Buzzsaw,

If they left the head, wouldn't it have to be a crazy deer "body" collecting cult???

I'm glad everyone sees the outragous nature of this accusation and realizes it make NO SENSE!!

I would like to thank the 2 CO's for stopping to help some young hunters locate a deer they shot. You can't always find them all, but a well placed shot ups your chances.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
