Well I happened to stick a doe Sat. night and she went 20 yards and expired. The problem was she expired 5 yrds onto another persons property. I didn't think anything of it so I removed her ineards and drug her onto my property and drove my truck down to pick her up. I get a call Monday evening from the Game and Parks official informing me that I was trespassing and the land owner requisted I recieve a violation. Appearantly this guy had told the game official that I was poaching deer at 11:00 pm in the evening with a rifle. I knew the Game Warden and he knew me and told me that since the land owner requisted that I recieve a violation that he had to give me a ticket. He said "Steve, I know you didn't poach and I had already asked your property owner what had happened that night so I don't want to give you a ticket for trespassing but I do have to give you a ticket for hunting with out permissiopn which is the least of all game violations". I thanked him and assured him that I will get permission before I retrieve my game on some one elses property. I am $150.00 poorer but reminded that you can't take anything for granted anymore. Ask permission. The bad thing about the whole thing is that I have asked this guy before and he said no and thanks for the deer only to find out later that he left the deer to rot. I will have the Game Warden assist me next time to retrieve my kill if it happens to go onto this gyus property.

That would be best Steve. When in doubt call the Game Warden. That way you can't be accused of wrong doing.

That's too bad that you have a problem neighbor that likes to create false stories and cause trouble for you.

That's what I have been told to do when a deer drops on someone elses property. In the city parks hunting program we have been told to call the police so they can escort the hunter when asking permission and removal of the deer.

That's just dirty of the adjascent landowner. Gettng the GW to go with you next time is a good idea. I would also like to put something in the back of your mind as well. In Arkansas it is illegal to intetionally waste the edible portion of any game animal. I believe the fine is much worse than what you got. Just something to think about.

I've heard the same kind of story from Maryland. The buck laid on the neighbors land in full sight after being shot with a bow and arrow. The hunter knew the neighbor and said it was impossible for him to retrieve the deer.

His nickname for his neighbors spread was "The Evil Empire".

This happened to us in Maine once. The wounded deer entered posted posted property. We asked permission to enter and it was granted.

Thanks for sharing your experience.
