Question guys.  Some shot at buck and look like they miss , then the buck came into the property I hunting and shot again in the property I am hunting and hit the buck but the buck was crawling and alive. I shot the buck and is dead.  Still waiting on the person but hasn’t come my my way. Who keeps the buck? They shot another is laying dead in the field 

Personal decision.   I would give it to them if their shots were lethal.  But on your property your call.

Like Moog said, your property so it's really going to be your call.  If it was state land I believe the final kill shot gets the deer.  Opposite of archery, which would be the best vital shot, I think...

I always go with first vital kill shot. If they are friendly neighbors I’d like to keep them that way.

If you killed it, it’s your deer as far as I’m concerned.  If the hunter shot two bucks, you’re doing him a favor anyway.  Possible trespasser is a separate issue.

Moog thank for the advice. Waiting here to see if the person comes my way. The second deer is dead in field and they haven’t retrieved it. 

I would also let them know they should not cross property line or shoot into it.

You keep the buck. You made the kill shot

I dropped a doe, looks like she was wounded. Wouldn't be surprised if one of the neighbors 8 or 9 shots was towards her.


Switching gears to habitat improvements!

Thanks again guys for the advice.  I don’t need enemies, so I will have friendly conversation with the person is he ever show up. In many years of hunting this is my first. Be safe and out there my friends.

Had a doe group come through around 730 i was gonna shoot the biggest until i saw a buck behind them.. 2.5 year old 8 pt... Swung around to scope the buck and the doe blew. Wasn't about to shoot a running 2 year old buck opening day. Not to mention i was on the ground and they were all inside 20 yds. Really exciting tho. Good luck all...

Packed it in daughter doesn’t last long, heard a single and double shots that’s it ! Unreal . These two bucks would have been  a cake shot from the hut two mornings ago ....

Only a few shots this morning. Lots and lots of squirrel. My new hunting neighbors were out with guns. Not sure they got permission to shoot within 500ft of the houses they were by but I guess not my issue. I saw no deer this morning. Each year opening morning seems to have less and less shots. Hopefully others are seeing more than me. Be safe everyone.

My 81 year old Dad's  new knee seems to be holding up fine .

That's him in the distance  we walked about 1.5 miles in 

Saw nothing but did see deer droppings  so there in there somewhere.
