    Husband shot a deer tonight and of course it ran over to the grouchy neighbors. Well he did the right thing and called up the man to see if we could go get it. He said NO! youre never aloud on my property ever! So this is where I need the help...

    Is there some kinda law or some way we can go get it?!

    Its an awful waste to let that deer die and rot for no reason! HELP

    Does the DNR have a hotline? call them and ask what the protocool is.. my guess is that it's not trepassing under that circumstance, but call for the rules.

    Call the Game Warden and get him to go with you to get the deer.

    My husband is a game warden and he agrees with Oklahoma Lightning. The local warden should be happy to help. Good Luck.[​IMG]

    I most places it is against the law not to retrieve it. Call the warden and ask what the law is or look it up online. If the neighbor is being a pain, have the warden go with you. You will not be allowed to carry a gun, or bow with, in most cases. Of course by this time the neighbor probably has it hanging in his shed!

    Deer or no deer you can't trespass on someone elses property. I'm not a lawyer but without probable cause the land owner could hold out and ask the game warden to get a warrant to search his property. Maybe the land owner wanted it for himself or if not in a couple days the vultures will tell you where it is. Once it gets good and rotten he will wish he let you come and get it.

    I wouldn't do it. If somebody doesn't want me on their land, I wont go. Hunting close to private property that your not allowed on is a chance you are going to take if you wound a deer instead of dropping it.

    I personally don't care what the DNR says, its still tresspassing.... Sorry.
