Nice. Takes a good 8 to break 140".

Congrats.

I assume over there that even with the sheriff or game warden involved the other landowner doesn't have to grant permission to retrieve game?

Thank you!
Correct: in Illinois even the DNR can't force a landowner to allow you on their property to retrieve game. Not only do we live about 30 miles away, this property is fairly new to me and I don't know the surrounding landowners. It's possible that permission could have been obtained if necessary, but there was a CRP field directly on the other side of the fence and who knows if we would have ever found him. I'm just thankful it didn't come to all that!

Kind of sucks IMO.

I guess if they go to waste because a landowner wants to be an azz and law enforcement cannot get involved then good enough when they feed the buzzards.

Great deer. I bet if you extended trespass rights to collect deer that are shot to your neighbors they would reciprocate. I have that agreement with my neighbors. No trespassing for any reason other than after texting or calling to follow a blood trail. Works well.

I didn't say that it would have been impossible to get permission, but this property is new to me and I don't live in the area to already know the surrounding landowners. It will take some research and footwork but may be possible.
Without much of a blood trail at that point, coupled with the fact there was CRP on the other side of the fence, it still would have been a very unpleasant job trying to find him. I'm just very thankful it worked out the way that it did under the circumstances.

Congratulations man. A straight 8 that goes 140 or better is a super nice buck.

A friend's 12 yo grandson shot his first buck the other day. 8 pointer as well. Damned thing launched off a small cliff into a river before being shot a second time. Died in the water so they stripped down to fetch him. Dressed weight 244. Toady Maine mountain buck.


The way life should be.
