Deer normal

Recommended Posts

Can anyone confirm this is ok? I hit a deer tonight with the car, went back later to get the back straps. They look fine.

But look at the head is it okay? Every deer I've ever gotten has either been a buck with horns, a doe, or a spike of some sort but I've never gotten a deer where the antlers are gone. This is okay? Those holes are normal? Thank you very much. For your help.

Yep either you knocked the horns off when you hit it or it recently dropped.if it lived they would of scabbed over and grew into new antlers this spring


I've hunted almost everyday of my life.. the rest have been wasted!

That is in the healing process. I’d guess the horn dropped in the past couple days. 

Eat ‘em!!

I have to ask why only the back straps?Unless slammed with a Semi there is more meat that should have been taken.

Better than taking none I guess.

Thank you all! You made difference between me keeping that meat and not. Thank you very much!

On why I only kept the backstraps:

1.) It was after midnight when I got done. I had been up since early AM and was tired.

2.) I had every intention of either gutting it or taking the front legs. Probably should have done the latter. But the guts were coming out its butt and it smelled like poop....so I just decided to take the backstraps.

3.) I was in a public-ish place. On private property but "town like" for sure. I didn't want people oogling at me.

I did drag the deer into a ditch by a culvert so the coyotes could eat in peace.

If I had this one to do all over: I would have kept the front legs too.

You do not have to explain yourself to anyone. You made the best decision that suited your situation at the time. Had this been a deer you shot and didn’t want to take out of the woods thats a different story. The fact you salvaged anything from it shows you are a responsible person.

Yep no worries NYHuntfish. It’s a road kill deer that otherwise would have went wasted. You got what you could given the circumstances.

Where is Biz on this one? Was this road kill reported and tagged before it was hacked into. Letter of the Law one would say.

I’m not sure of the roadkill laws in NY. I’ve never had an interest in eating deer that badly.

Just as much against the law as having some Como pvc strapped to a tree. You losing your touch?

I’ve never looked into roadkill rules. Wasn’t aware people eat those animals.

      Wondering if anyone has an extra DMP tag for 4W. 
      Long shot I know and would be happy to get a 1C to exchange. Or trade my turkey tag. Wasn't sure where I would be hunting and never got a deer yet.
