We have a season is South Dakota but I know for a fact you can not be found guilty and fined in just a matter of a couple of hours.

In fact in all reality Animal Control would not be involved at all. It would be GF&P or in the case of the State of Ohio the Wildlife Division, and they are not dumb enough to think that all deer drop dead where they are shot. There would be a complete investigation and it would not just be over and done with a prognosis in already.

Sad that is was wasted! I love deer meat and though I love to look at them and think they are a beautiful creature, I do find them tasty. I hate that it was wasted....

They're doing an autopsy on the deer to make sure it was a bullet, but the AC person said he would definitely be fined that at the least for hunting with a gun out of season. The hunter didn't come closer when we called out, just stayed in the cover of the woods on that side of the field. When my mom said she was calling the police he turned on the spot and ran. AC said he's definitely going to investigate who it was, and we gave him a lead that it was probably the neighbor 3 doors down, who's 40, lives with his parents, and has been in countless run-ins with the law already. Yes, the deer was wasted, but hunting out of season is a big crime over here. AC said it was as bad as robbing a house.

Doesn't sound like a positive ID to arrest him. More than likely the deer will be used to feed zoo animals or something of that nature

But you don't know who shot the deer, you are assuming. AC and the Wildlife Division are not the same same thing. You gave a lead and they are going to investigate but that doesn't mean that the neighbor will be arrested. In researching OH hunting laws, I found you can not retrieve a wounded or dead animal from the property owners property without written permission. That in itself it sad if you shot and animal and can not retrieve it.

Do you know the hunter was not with a youth? No you are making assumptions as well as AC as before any fine can be handed out it has to go to court. I am very curious about the role of AC in this area as their involvement as Poaching is handled by the Wildlife Division in Ohio. You would also have to know if the hunter had a Crop Damage Permit which is also legal in Ohio no matter when the season is.

There is a lot more to convicting someone of poaching a deer than just calling the police.

It's not in our hands anymore, it's in the hands of AC or the Wildlife Division or whoever is handling it now. You can't deny it was wrong to shoot a deer with a gun when it's not hunting season....especially since we have deer hunters who abide by the rules and don't go out with a gun until hunting season! That's not fair, IMO. That was no 17-yr old kid, there was one MAN, and he had no right to shoot a deer with a gun while breaking the law. If he had been a legitimate hunter with a bow and arrow or a kid with him, you would think he would have come over to where we were and talked it through rather than speed away at the mention of the police. He gave himself away when he said he shot it on his property, because where he was standing was the property of our neighbor's neighbors.

And who is to say it wasn't someone tresspassing? You could be fingering the wrong person. Did you see his face? If not than what you are doing is considered libel (defamation of character in writing). Yes, if it was shot out of season it was wrong. But it's just as wrong to blame a neighbor when you didn't even see his face.

sounds like you may have made enemies of your neighbors over this. Did you already not get along with them?
