These quartering laws need a change

I know you can bring one out in pieces if you bring out the whole thing.

I honestly believe that this hinders people from getting as deep as they possibly could. What does it matter if you bring out the cape and quarters, tenderloins and neck meat leaving the hooves and rib cage.

Are we really worrying about the very few that will do this in fear of how game crooks might abuse it?

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

What are the quartering laws? Actual law please, not a summary!

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: These quartering laws need a change

Jason, I dont have an excerpt from the digest. It wasnt clear so I contacted the office directly and they stated that big game animals could be quartered provided EVERYTHING was brought out. The entire hide, head, rib cage... everything!

Its not black and white in the digest, I just looked.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

Im pretty sure you cannot 1/4 elk or bears due to the fact they must be checked in.

There are no quartering laws. And there are also no place of processing requirements so where it falls is OK to process (quarter). But there are refuse laws. Only the offal is exempted from them. Everything that is required to be disposed of as residential waste from your house would also need to be carried off the public land and disposed of in that manner.

Re: These quartering laws need a change

If and when I feel the need to quarter and pack out...I'll do it..regardless of the law. Everything will come out..."no one left behind."...

Re: These quartering laws need a change

I have definitely carried/dragged/pushed/cussed deer that I have killed that I would have quartered but I was also under the assumption that it was illegal to do so. And if you cant leave the rib cage the hide and the hooves, then to me whats the point. You might as well drag the thing.
