Why won't you let someone recover a deer on their land?

    Yea but there's still the question, was he able to get permission to go on neighbors property?



    As far as original question, it would depend on who it was. Most neighbors around lease their ground to non residents, they would haveta come and ask. The actual land owners can pretty much go get it and not really even haveta ask and the same goes for us on their land. I myself always call anyway to let them know even though it's not needed I still just do. Most of the surrounding property is owned by people I've known my whole life so it's never been a problem. Everyone pretty much knows what's what and where the property lines are but doesn't make a big deal out of it. But like someone said earlier we run cattle on the farm I hunt and from past experience most of the hunters leasing ground aren't smart enough to shut a gate back up that they have open or not get their trucks stuck out in the middle of a feild they never should of been in. Just avoids problems.

    cooter. if the land is legally posted, yes you need permission to go after a wounded game animal.

    Ask permission every time. Blanket permission to "track" is like permission to look and come up with an excuse if caught on the other person's property not really tracking. I'm neighborly, but not that neighborly.

    Don't really have a dog in this hunt only my thoughts. If the adjoining property is also hunted you should make a courtesy call just to make sure your intrusion is not going to interfere with any activity the land owner has planned.

    We have a small place, only about 23 acres. But it borders the state gamelands, and I have a lot of deer on my place or passing through. I don't mind anyone coming in to retrieve a downed animal, but the only person I've ever had trouble with was sitting in a tree stand 25 feet outside my front yard, watching my yard.
    I used to keep salt blocks out for the deer year round, down in the bottom of my yard. He would sit and watch them and shoot as soon as they stepped off my property. Legal, yes. But I have a problem with someone shooting a high power rifle towards my house legal or not.
    He got mouthy with me over coming across my place to get to the gamelands, and was told he'd be arrested If he stepped foot on there again.
    If he killed a deer and it ran onto my place, I'd still let him come get it, if he asked first. I'm not THAT big of a jerk.
