I don't think what the OP did was wrong... its a shame the deer was wasted though.

It's just my opinion (and obviously it might be very different to others on here - and where I come from few people hunt and not many people have guns) but I would not want anyone on my property with out my permission EVER. I would not want shot animals on my property. At the very least I'd expect people who are planning to hunt around my property to come talk to me about it first, let me know what they were doing, where and when.

I don't know what sitatuion the OP is in, but many people know their neighbours and community pretty well. Perhaps she is making a sweeping statement about this neighbour - but maybe she isn't.

If I found a dead animal on my land and suspected someone had shot it on my land then I would call the relevant authorities. They could tell me if it didn't happen, or if it was legal etc. That is what the authorities are for - they serve the public. The man could have come over and apologised for the deer coming onto the land when he saw the family was upset, he could have offered to remove it, or something. He didn't though, he bailed. If he had stayed and explained the situation then the police may not have been called. He could have gone round to all his neighbours and asked for permission to go onto their lands - but he didn't.

You can not control where a wounded animal runs or how far. Doesn't even make any sense... Why would the man apologize for where the deer ran? And he did state he wanted to get the deer. They told him no, he was not coming on the property.

The OP is very young, the story has changed signifigantly and it is over. Very sad!

My story has not changed. Yes, I agree emotions got the best of us, but the man never stated he wanted to come get the deer.

In the original post it seemed to me that you immediately yelled to the man that he was NOT to come onto your property. What choice did he have then? He never even had a chance to offer to remove the deer.

One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.

Although I agree with the majority of responses, at the same time I can see where the OP is coming from. Before I read the responses I likely would've done the same thing as the OP. I am not versed in the ways of hunting and guns and although there are laws in place for whether a person can cross my property to get his game or not, I might be unsure if this was a random guy shooting animals illegaly on my property or not. I might consult someone for information instead of heading straight to animal control though.
