So the young hunter left the buck in the field and went to Grandma's house to brag on facebook?

I'm confused

I’ve gone from being agnostic towards Facebook to thinking that it’s members may have some kind of emotional disorder.

That is how I took it. I could see how someone could come across the deer and think it had been shot and lost and claim it as their own too.

I have yet to watch the video

But why not tag it, leave your hat and THEN go get help? Take a couple pics and do online check in, etc.

Yeah I'm with you on this one. If the deer want tagged or marked then it's their own fault.

I don't see how the guy that found it could be charged for harvesting it if it wasn't marked. Unless he was not supposed to be on that property.

I've walked upon 2 deer that I can remember that had been shot and was either left for dead or the shooters were poor trackers. Unfortunately by the time I had found them they had be dead for a couple days. Both were does, not that it should make a difference!

Didn't see anything in the story about it not being tagged.

My take on this story is a thief / thieves stole just the deer's head w/rack and cape only, AFTER it was tagged, field dressed, skinned , etc.

An outstanding buck. Congratulations to the young man and I'm happy to hear he got it back.

Not every state requires a deer to be tagged.

I tagged one years ago and left it for a few hours to go back home to get the snow machine to drag it out. When I came back the coyotes or wolves had eaten most of the hind quarters. That burned my buck tag.

Probably figured because it was on their private property no one would steal it.

That's like saying it's ok to steal someone's car because they didn't put it in the garage.

You think that will stop a thief?

I had a deer stolen once. No, it wasn't my fault because I didn't hang a tag on it immediately. Sometimes doing so can be foolish, and don't believe for a second that a deer having a tag would stop the scumbags from doing it.

I arrowed a descent buck about 200 yards from a trail going through national forest land. I saw it was a good shot placement with a complete pass through. I watched where the buck went and marked it in my mind, as well as where it crested me from the hill leading to the walking trail. Having learned in my youth, give a wounded deer time to die or he may be bumped never to be recovered. My practice for an arrowed buck has been 30 minutes to an hour before approaching. Even perfect shots don't give immediate kills like a rifle does. I arrowed this deer at about 1600 hours with dusk falling at 1800 hours that time of year. At about 1645, I hear a UTV approaching on the trail which is supposed to be foot traffic only. I hear it shut off and somebody yells "looks like a deer laying over there!" I start getting out of my tree stand (a climber) and finally hit the ground and sprint that direction. As I approach, the I start yelling, "hey, that's my kill!" as they close the tailgate and get back in the UTV. I went back to where the shot was placed and picked up my arrow and trailed it to exactly where I saw them loading it in the UTV. Yep, it was my deer.

I went back to my father-in-law's place where I was staying to hunt and he told me that was a common occurrence in the area and people had threatened to kill each other in those woods over claiming a deer.
