Rule clarification, lcornice

5 posts in this topic

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.

    • That's rough DrJ, were you on public or private land?   
    • They're finally playing someone outside of the central division tonight, so we'll see what happens. Did Sano get suspended for throwing a punch yesterday?
    • OK, to go back to original question, how much current do the 12 volt pumps used in those sort of systems use?   I can go look up the information and figure it out, but I hoped someone here already knew the answer.  
    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
