Okay someone post on another thread that you could track a wounded deer onto another property without permission.

I found this in the laws:

"A person on foot may, without permission, enter land that is not posted to retrieve a wounded animal that was lawfully shot, but may not remain on the land after being told to leave."

So I still don't think you can track it if the land is posted.

If it is posted you have to gain permission. I know that if you track onto someone elses land you have to leave your gun otherwise it is a gross mistermeaner. It is always best policy to ask permission. I am hunting a 40 CRP field this year and I know that I have to more or less drop it in its tracks otherwise I will have to get permission to cross over to other peoples property. We already have verbal permission, but still, it obviously depends on the deer for the land owners response.

There was a post a few years ago where someone shot a 180 class deer and it ran into posted land and expired. The person who shot the deer legally asked the land owner if he could retrieve the deer. The land owner looked at the deer and said no. He walked out and tagged the deer himself. The shooter called the DNR and the DNR officer told the shooter that unfortunately he could do nothing about it. I don't know if that is a true story, but man I would be very unhappy if that ever happened to me.

It is true that if it is posted that you do NOT have permission to enter. You must ask the property owner. It would also be in your best interest to contact the CO or local sheriff. That just eliminates a step if you talk to the owner and they say no.

If the law enforcement speaks with the owner and they still say "NO, you cannot enter", then there is nothing they can do. You are not allowed to retrieve that animal.

You lot are more charitable than I. If it had been me, there would have been a midnight run and a couple hundred pounds of salt pellets involved.

This did not happen to me. I just want to make that very clear. I would have probably done something very different as well. I just know it can be a sticky situation. Something that did happen to our group was that we had a neighbor on some land we hunt down in SE MN that has been known to pull guns on trespassers and will not allow individuals on his land at any cost. It is not posted however. My buddy had a deer land about 120 yards onto his property. Lets just say there was a late night extraction team (I was not a part of) that went on and pulled that deer out without any lights or anything. It was not posted and they did not have any guns, knives or archery equipment, so it was not against the law, but it was definately risky. The deer scored 176.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
