Yea, there are all kinds of various other reasons people can be killing deer out of season.

Had the OP been smart and not acting purely on emotions they would have let the hunter collect their deer and then called the DEC and reported what they thought was out of season hunting.

Then the DEC people could have stopped at the neighbors house and looked to see if the proper paper work was in order for the body they would have hanging.

AB that would have been the perfect solution. One of my daughter's best friends just found a dead deer in their pasture and she assumed the same thing, shot there. I was talking to my daughter and she said the deer had been shot with an arrow and the arrow was still stuck in the butt. Well, hello, do you know how long and far that deer could have traveled with an arrow to the butt? Hello!

Than Kass got to talk to her dad and realized the deer died in their pasture wasn't shot there.

I hate that the op had this guy tried and convicted before he was even been talked too.
And judging someone's age these days is nearly impossible. There is a Senior in my daughter's high school that looks older than my 52 year old husband!!!

We live in kansas, my husband is a avid hunter and also works for our local sheriff dept, right now it's bow season. Rifle should open up some time in dec. Rule of thumb, if you do shoot a deer on a WHA (walk in hunting area) and the deer crosses on to a non WHA after being shot, the hunter has to reteave the body. Although my husband tends to hunt on privet land more more then WHA to avoid the "week end " hunters.
To OP yes Wn is's up to a judge only after evedence is taken in to consideration. Fines can be higher and the hunter/pocher will lose his fire arms.

Kansas, proper hunting etiquette requires the hunter to request permission from the land owner prior to entering their land, even to retrieve a deer they shot.

It is hard to believe that anyone would refuse them access to get the body though.

I'll have to ask my husband what is it call but not in kansas......i had this conversation with my husband last week end when he was bow hunting and took a shot at a buck on a WHA, watched it as it went down the fence line and then cross the road and in to a wheat field...turns out my husband missed on his shot but asked him if he did shot could he go and get it...he said yes only if dragged out then gutted???? But for the life of me I can't remember what he called it when doing it.
normally we ask permision to enter any ones property to either when hunting or if one of our live stock get out.

NYS is obviously very different than Kansas.

I got this from Here

Question: If I shoot a deer and it runs onto posted property, do I have the legal right to go on the property to retrieve it?
: No. The DEC recommends that hunters finding themselves in this predicament seek out the landowner, explain the situation, and ask permission. If the landowner refuses, the hunter will not be able to enter the property, and the DEC cannot compel a landowner to grant access. If the hunter has reason to believe that the landowner intends to illegally possess the deer, it should be reported to the nearest Environmental Conservation Officer. This situation illustrates the need for hunters to establish good landowner relations prior to going afield, and to take only good clean kill shots when hunting for any game.
The Kansas regulations can be found Here

I see one huge difference, in Kansas you are allowed to bait dear and other wildlife to hunt them.

Here is a nice resource about trespass and it happens to state the fact the in Kansas a hunter can go on private land to retrieve their wounded animal unless told to leave.

Interesting stuff how different things are from state to state.

I agree with WickNag and Alwaysbehind.

OP - stop and think. Did you hear the shot? If not - and I doubt you did or there would be more drama to your story - it proves the deer was shot elsewhere and being tracked. It really sucks to shoot a deer at dusk and have it keep going. When that happens, we typically contact the rest of the party to help track so the poor thing doesn't suffer. Our hunting party is typically teens to grand parents . . .

My mom said she heard a shot but it was 20 or so minutes before we found the deer.

Which makes sense.

Just so you know in the future, it is not like they show on TV. The deer gets shot and then the deer runs off, bleeding along the way. Sometimes bleeding a lot, sometimes not bleeding much at all.

The hunter then has to track the deer following the blood trail usually.

Hopefully the deer falls quickly and dies right there. Frequently the adrenalin keeps the deer going for quite some time over a large distance.
