Dirt Nap
« on: June 02, 2016, 01:49:07 PM »
Another one bites the dust!  I had my farmer bring me a doe he killed with a crop damage tag and put it 175 yards from the house in a waterway.  Around 10:30 this morning, Half Tail as we have come to know her, shows up for her last meal (compliments of my 22-250).  She was tugging on the hide when I shot.  She still had a firm grip on it when I took the picture.  As a plus, she looks as if she had been nursing pups as well.

Good job!  One question, why did you dump the doe?

It was a crop damage tag from another farm.  The game warden told him he could bring it to my place for coyote hunting.  Not sure if it is legal to consume a deer taken out of season using a crop damage tag.  We always get plenty of meat during the regular season anyway.

Now that's an odd law,  I think I would double check...when stationed in SC we used crop damage permits and always ate the meat or at a minimum gave it to needy families...I know many places have laws that require you to use the meat as food or it is considered wanton waste...just seems a shame and a waste to dump a whole deer as yote bait when the carcass would serve the same end...

BTW nice whack on the yote... --09--0

Thanks TT, Sorry if I misled with my previous post.  I do not know the legalities of consuming one with a crop damage tag.  It may have been perfectly legal to consume.  If it is legal, I might just get free crop damage tags and stop buying doe tags during the season... @--0--0105  Also, thanks for your service.  My dad was stationed at Charleston AF around '65 (?).
