    Joe goes to jail and I wouldn't want the rack.I'd be pretty steamed though.

    I hear you Smitty18, I get far more excited for an opener than I do my birthday or a holiday, I'm guessing the same is true with most people on here.

    the dnr keeps the rack for evidense /if someone at the dnr office likes the rack the odds of you getting the rack back are slim to none.this is from an experience with a similar situation.

    Yeah, I kinda figured the non-regulars would be the ones having a bit of a stroke over my comment. Just to let ya'll know I am not a guy who runs around gunning down people in my stands. Well, maybe sometimes! [THAT WAS A JOKE!! I AM NOT SERIOUS!!].
    I had been hearing lots of gobbling but then we went from 70s to 30s overnight. The birds have shut down. I do have my opening day spot picked out, all that is left is to roost them the night before opening day.
    My friends had a bit of a chuckle today when I was able to tell them when trout opens (the 16th/3 days) and when turkey opens (the 23rd/10 days) but not when my 15th birthday is (the 19th/6 days)
    That really shows what my priorities are. And yes I did have to look at the calendar to figure out how many days until my birthday.

    I knew you were kidding Smitty18 but people who don't follow OL.com might not know your sense of humor, best to put a or something after. Heard my first gobble today and saw a couple dozen turkeys out in the cow pasture, man am I excited for my turkey hunt coming up in a couple of weeks. Got off topic a little but had to let it be known

    It would appear that you guys took my attempt at a funny answer a tad too serious. I would not shoot someone unless he shot first. The best thing to do is get his license number and personal information and call the Cops and DNR.

    It would be hard to not take matters into your own hands, but in a case like this it would be best to let the law handle it. I am sure that the laws of whatever state this may happen in are enough to cover the offence and discourage it from happening again.

    Smitty18, yea Joe should get a smack or two by the property owner not sure about taking it to the extreme of SSS, lol. DSM suggests just trespassing but Cgull by saying his gun and truck getting taken would that mean he is busted for poaching also? DJH, lol, this hasn't happened to me but I was just thinking about how it could and I'm sure it's on lots of hunters minds each season. I agree that it wouldn't hold the same value on the wall anymore but I probably would want the rack, not to tell false stories, just that it is a nice set of antlers.

    At our place, this guy isn't getting a ticket, he's going to jail. There is a nice upside to hunting with a Sheriff's Deputy. Joe should not have had dozen warnings. One should suffice then the trespassing complaints need to be made official. The trophy value of the deer may be the super size rattlin' horns I would hope you get to keep; a reminder to you of the day Joe got a free ride to town.

    MWK_MN, ignorance is all around us & it seems to grow each day, a guy with a gun on private property that could lead you in so many ways, you need me to go put the fear of god into him my friend :-)

    Joe gets the ticket for trespassing, loses his gun and maybe 4 wheeler or truck. The DNR decides who gets the deer. I hunt public land mostly and have found several hunters in my best stands openeing day before dawn. I didn't make a situation, I just went back later and chained the platforms to the trees so no one can hunt those stands and I hide and camo my ladder stands better.

    Joe gets cited for trespassing and I will have to let the DNR decide who gets the deer. As big as that deer might be it has no trophy value to me anymore.

    what smitty said, joe had no right to shoot something that wasnt on his land and now he has to pay. It would be something different if he had shot it on his land and it ran on to your land. I cant stand it when people take your trophy away after you have been watching it grow for years.
