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?

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Actually, merc has Verado and "four strokes" . I have seen a fair number of mercs on west end but very few verado which have a distinct silhouette.
