this is the best thing i've ever heard.shadowrider said:A car about 1/4 mile in front of me rolled a buck into the ditch at the edge of a yard. The pickup behind the car stopped and as I drove by the driver of the pickup and the guy in the yard were trading punches over the deer. I didn't stay to see who won.

Around here, you cannot take a road killed deer w/out a permit. This way, if you have a dead deer, they know it's not as a result of poaching. The other night, my boss's hubby hit a deer. My 1st question? What did he do w/the deer? Unfortunately, it ran off. :/Bettacreek said:I have yet to actually get any thing from the roadkill cafe. Maybe it's the roadkill drive-through? Anyways, any time I see a dead, potentially edible animal on the road, I slow down to take a look. I found a young doe last winter, and went back for it, but when JD (ex-boyfriend's brother) went to grab it, it seemed like every bone in the body was broken. The hind legs were shattered and it had foamy blood in its nose (ie, lung damage). We ended up leaving it for the wild critters who aren't so picky. Jas and I check out all the deaders when we're spotting. Again, have yet to find a good fresh one. As far as permits, what permits? I've never checked into it. The way I see it, deer around here lay for days at the shortest, or end up bloating, rotting and then completely decomposing along the road. Obviously nobody else wants them or cleans them up, so why bother wasting time with someone who might say no you cannot take it, then let it sit and rot? If I find a yummy roadkill, I'm stopping, loading it into the bed of my car, and getting the hell outta there, lol.
