To go along with the other posts

Is there a way to check on a neighbor to see if they are buying tags? Curious because they claim to have killed 4 deer (1 buck and 3 does), and couldn’t find 2 more(1 buck and 1 doe). When I helped him look for the lost buck across our property, he had mentioned these were just something to shoot at until the big buck walked by. I know you are allowed 2 bucks and mentioned that to him but honestly I do not think he has bought a tag at all. We are having a deer shortage and no amount of talking to him is helping him from refrain from shooting anything that walks by. He hunts on 6 acres next to our 105. My husband and I have passed on every deer this year (which is not as many as usual) looking for only 1 mature buck. Needless to say no shots by us.

So I guess 2 questions:
How can I check if he is buying tags?
Any suggestions as how to reach him about managing deer and saving some for everyone else who lives around there?

Thanks

Contact your local CPO. Usually at the end of deer season they will have a list of suspicious tag purchases and deer checks and will conduct interviews with those people. Crazy what people think they can get away with.

I’d like to see a search link on the IDNR website just to verify whether or not a persons deer are being reported.  I know of a couple idiots myself with fishy stories and one in particular that I have caught in several lies about his deer.  That would save the CPO’s some valuable time as well.

Mrs. Outdoorswoman . If he just shoots deer for something to do until a big one walks by and had the balls to ask me to come onto my land to help him find one. He would get a rude and very nasty response that he would not like. He is probably a fence sitter also. You know what they say (when you straddle a fence you get splinters up your a$$!) You can’t fix stupid and he fits that bill. What a piece of trash!. Turn his worthless butt in.

Knox… you hit the nail on the head, one stand is close enough to the fence I could spit on the tree from our property. I like the idea that you could look up someones last name and search to see what tags they have checked in. Its all in the system so I can’t imagine it would be that hard to add it to the website.

Anyway thanks everyone for the thoughts.

One more thought, can you kill a deer and give it to the landowner legally? The same guy has to give his landowner 2 deer to be able to hunt there, can you do that?

Thanks

I think he can give it to the landowner but he has to tag it. Kind of like the super pros that donate to hunters for the hungry. I do know its illegal to sell venison . But if he does all you say he does then who would know if he tagged it or not. I would turn him in for sure. Worst that could happen is the CPO won’t find any violations and he knows he is being watched. Start chewing tobacco and spit on him while he is in the stand lol….

Yep. You can shoot and “donate” as long as the deer is tagged legally. But then you got to think too….does the land owner have nuisance tags and is the hunter placing the farmers tags on those deer instead of using his own? Check with CPO and he can get on his computer and have an answer for you in two minutes and if he feels something isn’t adding up especially with what you are saying, he will help find an answer.

I am not sure I want to chew tobacco but how about a squirt gun filled with coyote pee.

Okay…..get a remote fart machine and when a deer gets close to ole splinter butt, let it rip off a big ole fart. That will scare them away and probably him to. Just strap yourself to the tree so you don’t fall out laughing .
