Had to call the Game Warden
« on: November 26, 2013, 02:40:09 pm »
So when I pulled up to my hunting spot yesterday I noticed that there were three deer that had the horns cut off the head and that was it... laying on the side of the road. Not gutted, skinned or had any meat removed. It really irritates me that people go out hunting and kill deer just for their horns. I myself would consider myself a pretty avid hunter. I have hunted since I was 7 with my dad. I have killed deer and seen deer killed. and with all those years and deer killed I have never actually shot a buck with horns. But I did put food on the table for my family. My dad is also a butcher and I know how to process deer and love Venison. I don't know it just bothered me and thought I would tell the Game Warden about what was going on because to me that is ethically and Morally just Effed up. Shoot, I just killed one out there on Friday and guess where it is. 1lb packages in my freezer of deer burger, breakfast sausage, and steaks. Those people need to get busted and have all fish and game privileges revoked for life. thoughts?

Hopefully the warden find the a** and put them in jail. I really hate that crap.

On a different note, got some spare venison? Love it to death and son has never tried it. Wife won't eat "Bambi".

Did you see gun shot wounds?  I have to ask because there is the possiblity you may have seen a county/city/state roads and grounds dump site.  They end up pickin up road kill carcasses across the state and take them places to dump them.  One would think that would be the local dump but is not always the case. Someone has usually already cut the antlers off.  (antlers grow back and horns are perm).  This time of year, there are many road kills, many of which show no signs of being hit by a vehicle.  I saw three on the way to Lillington last week, looked like they could have stood up and ran minus their horns and one was actually 'caped'. 

Many taxidermists will harvest from road kills as well as the average deer hunter who want a rack or more racks.  For the most part, many in the South will take the horns and the back straps only and leave the rest which of course is still wasting meat.  An Asian will not pass an antler either. They use them for tea and believe they increase longevity.

Just thought I would throw it out there because for the most part, hunters are straight up when it comes to their sport. I do however know that there are some, though few, that jacklight just to kill.  Used to work as a GW years back, scariest duty I had as an MP.

Swish, Fort Bragg used to have a list the GWs maintained that if your number is up and they have a road kill, they will phone you and you can come to the scene to pick up the carcass to butcher.  Not certain they still do that.  Legal office might have stopped that for various reasons.  Used to be a good source of meat supplementation.

That is absurd.  However, on the flipside of this I can hardly fathom someone killing an NC buck for the rack...unless it were citation sized or close to it.  Afterall, NC does not grow very big deer.  Either way, if someone did do that I hope they get rolled up by the law and have a judge throw the book at them.  Suspending hunting/fishing license for life would be a great start.  Just my .02
