Sorry, I can't. I recall reading it in the digest years ago (maybe it was a press release?). I know nothing of the rules of these DMA areas either as I'm not in or even near one.

I'm certain the PGC has mentioned this sometime and somewhere in the past. I'll try and dig it up. If anyone else knows where it is, by all means, post it up.

Here it is in it's original form....not much help either.

I can't find an actual law that says you can't dump carcasses on your own private land (farmers do it all the time with dead cows, for instance). Dumping them on public lands 'may' be considered littering?

I wasnt looking to be difficult, I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss something. I remember reading that it was OK to dump carcasses on public SGL's etc but that was a few years ago. I cant seem to find any verbiage in the current digest that says either way. I am guessing the verbiage that used to be in the digest was removed to prevent confusion when the DMA rules were added. It doesn't matter much to me either way since I bag and put the the carcass out with the trash. I know plenty of people that dump the carcass on the SGL's by me. Outside of the DMA I doubt it is a big deal.

This is a really useful thread! I realized today that my zip ties were misplaced and separated from my field bag last season (I moved in January). I was out for deer and wondering what I would improvise to fill out the tag. I've never gotten a deer, either, and did not realize that the township needed to be filled out, too. I hunt suburbia and have no idea what township the property is located in. Need to get organized!

If your way back in on state or private u can do your entire butchering job there, deboning meat and bringing meat and head. Is there any difference? I really would not care to just pull up and throw out carcass anywhere on state ground even if it was legal. I hunt in a DMA and just take the so called parts to there dumpster. I don't really care to have the crap on my property legal or not. I went to an actual CWD meeting in fall of 15 the PGC put on. I don't want to tell you what to do in case I'm wrong and I'm sure someone will correct me. I thought a WCO speaking that night said leaving a carcass or parts was not littering. I could be wrong but I don't think I dreamed it though. If you find out let me know. I used to in the day would just bring my in used parts home with me and just sit out for garbage pick up. Even though I own around 40 acres didn't really care to have those things scattered on my property.

I use US Topo Map app on the phone to figure out the county/township when hunting. Sometimes I am close to county borders. It makes figuring out the township much easier.

A very interesting thread. I will add this. If I shoot a buck that is going to be mounted, no way am I cutting a hole in the ear. The tag is going to be filled in, zip tied and then possibly Saran-wrapped around the antler. It will not come off that way no matter what you drag it through.

I get the idea behind filling in the tag and then tagging the deer before moving it. It helps prevent illegal activity.

And as R.S.B said way back in the thread, he was looking for the deer to be tagged, if it was on the antler or ear.

A closed mind keeps the truth out

Years ago, I once shot a doe. I tagged and gutted it, then dragged it to the vehicle. I sat there and waited for my father and buddy to finish hunting. About an hour latter a guy walked up and tapped on the window. Here he followed my drag marks on his way out. He handed me my tag. He found it. It seems it came off and I never knew. Good thing a WCO didn't drive by to check!
