  • Deer carcasses being dumped in the subdivision.. ideas?

    There is a creek that runs under a bridge at the entrance to our subdivision, it also happens to be where the bus picks up the kids. Three deer carcasses have appeared in the creek in the last 2 weeks (visible from the road and bridge), two of them are partially wrapped in plastic, the third isn't, all three have limbs removed and tossed nearby. We are pretty sure we know who it is that is doing the dumping, the guy has been seen gutting a deer in his garage one day, the next day the first deer ended up in the creek. The next time he was seen with a dead deer laying in his driveway, again the next day the second deer was in the creek.

    Any ideas on how to handle this?

    Never heard of anyone gutting a deer in their garage. Is he missing a few marbles? I would call the authorities. Tell them what you know. Try and get the neighbors to do the same. Then let the authorities handle the issue...... That's just nasty.... Could turn into a health issue if the deer aren't removed....
    How to start an argument online:
    1) Express an opinion
    2) Wait

      What, he just guts them and then tosses the carcass? Sounds like he' after some organs or something. Your DNR officers will find it very interesting i bet.

        Are you saying that it is basically the skeletal remains of the deer, the cut up deer, with hide on, or the deer less the hind quarters and back straps???? Just trying to get a picture of this.

        Carcasses will be gone in no time ... predators and decomposition, so that isn't a major issue. But what are the laws about the number of deer you can harvest there? Is it in season? Is the guy well known? Neighbor? Nice?

        Might want to talk to him, stating that you have seen some deer in his possession, then you see deer carcasses in the stream. If they are his, he might want to find a more discreet place to dump them. Or you may just want to notify the authorites and tell them what you know and share you concerns, letting them handle it.
        Rules of Repair:
        1. If it ain't broke, give me a hammer, it will be!
        2. You only need 2 tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move, and it should, use WD-40. If it moves, and it shouldn't, use Duct Tape!
        3. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

          Not only is it unethical but its also against the law in most states to dump deer carcasses in creeks, road sides and ditches. If it were me I would notify the game wardens next time you see him dressing an animal in his garage and let them set up and catch him.

            Interesting that this came up. A few weeks ago I had an appointment with a GA DNR Ranger to inspect my boat to finalize registration. He called me and I answered the phone and heard a noise and then a dial tone. After a few minutes he called back and apologized for hanging up. Long story short he was checking into deer dumping. Someone had dumped 15 carcasses over the course of deer season at the end of a dead end road on private property. The owner was getting ticked. Here's the bad part. The Ranger has a good idea who is doing it, but DNR has no money to set up cameras or stake out the site. He has to randomly check in the hopes of catching the poacher. All he does is take backstraps and hind quarters, wasting the rest. I hope the ranger gets his man.

              Return the deer to their owner. Take the rotting carcasses out of the creek and put them in the guys garage or leave them on his front porch. Sometimes its the only way to get through to people.

                When you see a third deer in his driveway stake the place out. After you have solid proof that is the guy who is doing the dumping, try a little southern justice on him. Why not go dump it on his front doorstep?

                    There is absolutely no reason to confront anyone. A simple call to the local DNR advising them of the dumped carcass is all you have to do. Itís their job. Let them handle it.

                      Thanks guys. I don't really know anything about the guy that we strongly suspect is the culprit. Honestly, if a guy wants to butcher a deer in his garage and then take it into the woods to let nature take it's course I have no problem with it. Wrapping them in plastic and tossing them off a bridge where all the rest of us have to see and smell them is not cool.

                      I'd really like to drag them out of the creek with the wife's jeep and leave them in his front yard, but ill try to be civil first. I called the Missouri department of conservation, they were very interested and are sending an agent out to look into it.

                      The wildlife camera is a great idea.. That may be the next step.

                        When the DNR and law enforcement gets hold of this meatball, it's liable to cost him a bundle$$$....Even plain ignorance is no excuse for creating this health and evironmental hazard!

                          I have gutted deer in my garage, and a hog or two. The deer were road kill, and did self butcher, the cleanup was send body parts with the trash. Kept the blood for the roses, wife was ready to kill me till she saw the roses the following year. The hogs were for a hog roast cleanup the same. He may have only kept the straps on the inside that are the most tender. He needs to be drawn and quartered.

                            Gutted? As in, remove entrails? In the garage? Weird.


                            Gut pile stays in the woods. Technically supposed to carry them out, so you're not feeding coyotes, but that's a lot of (extra) dead weight.

                            I happily SKIN my deer in the garage though.


                            Either way, hope they catch the guy. I'll turn my head for the guy who's taking more than the legal limit to make sure his family has food on the table for the year, but those guys are usually the ones taking the extra time to pick every ounce of meat off the deer. If you're just doing it for a couple steaks, you're ruining it for everyone.

                              I would call the DNR in your area and let them handle it, don't touch the carcasses let DNR handle it and any subsequent investigation. Field dressing an animal should be done in the woods and left in the woods for mother nature to take care of. Unless your from PA hunting in Colorado with your own mobile Butchering facility.......

                              The idea that you don't want to feed the Coyotes is absurd and just another BS regulation by those empowered with keeping their thumb on us.

                              I would be interested in pics of the Carcasses though to see exactly what has been done, these could have been roadkill which would explain why some are still intact but to be honest 98Shabah probably doesn't know the specific terms that hunters do so pics would probably be in order, in any event discarding them in a running creek is unethical and should be investigated properly.
