Where I live ( in Canada) our deer season just closed! Might I add, I was skunked this year, no deer for me! Around here bow season opens 2-3 weeks before rifle season. We don't have any special season for just youth! The youth hunt during the regular rifle season, with an adult of course! Deer can travel MANY miles with a wound. I have even seen ones that have been nicked in the heart take off in the woods and have to be tracked down. My uncle and I went out hunting when the season started, he wounded the deer and we had to track it through the woods, by just a little blood trail. It took us a VERY long time to find the deer, we walked probably 5-7 miles altogether ( back and forth through the forest, following the blood), and the deer was still alive when we caught up with it and had to be shot again. It is entirely possible this person shot the deer on his own property. Here we are not allowed to shoot on our own property unless it is 400 meters away from any dwelling, so here he could have been caught for that too!
It certainly a shame for that meat to go to waste though! There is nothing worse then seeing that happen!

It's not going to waste, it's being used to feed the homeless.

I don't believe it's possible for a deer to run that distance with a wound to the heart but by the sound of it the deer might've been hit in the lungs instead of the heart. Deer can run far because of the rush of energy they get when they get shot. If it did get shot in the lungs then it could've ran that far. Things can happen. They might be rare but they can happen. I don't agree with you but I don't disagree with you.

That's a harsh prognosis! It amazes me that we punish innocent poeople for stupid things, yet the real criminals get away with things sometimes. Not being rude, but I have a question. Why could'nt he just take the deer, were you planning on making jerkey or something?

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

The deer wasn't gutted soon enough to be used. You said it went in for an autopsy and there is no way that deer was able to be used for meat by that point.

Just a reminder of your post. It is nice for you to believe this deer didn't go to waste but sadly it did. The right thing to do would have been let the fellow retrieve his deer and than if you felt if he was in the wrong, called dept of wildlife and had him investigated. At least the deer would have been gutted and than they could have used it for meat for the homeless.

I still find this very sad and a bad judgment call on your mom's part.

I am just a little confused on why you could'nt just let the dude tae the stinkin' deer. I mean, you weren't gonna use it-and he wasn't threatning anything/anyone on your property... So why cause all the commtion?

Wannahorse, I am thinking that those are spam posts..


OP - Your story has jumped around and changed a couple of times concerning the deer.

Also without the deer in the possession of the person who shot it, it is unlikely that the person is going to be charged with anything. There is no real sure way to prove that person did shoot said deer.

Also I am with everyone else who said that the buck very well could have run that far. We have tracked more then one deer that was mortally wounded more then a mile when out hunting.

FWIW our deer season just got done with here. We have a short youth season right at the beginning of rifle season, then muzzle loader and all through this bow. Bow season doesn't end until sometime in December I believe.

Sad to say that I also agree that the carcass was wasted.

I am in a residential area with properties varying from 3 acres on up. I do not like people on my property weilding a gun and have denied access. Specially when I come home and they are already on my property helping them selves.
Too many people taht do not know how to handle a gun running around. There should be some mandatory training to get a gun liscense.
