    Question Deer antlers

    Does anyone know that exact law on possession of deer antlers?

    Lets say you're driving down the road and ther is a buck laying dead on the side of the road.Can you legally cut the horns off this buck?

    Thanks.

    You must get a possession tag from PD and remove entire carcass. Possession of Deer parts without a number will get you in trouble.
    When all else fails..... call in an Airstrike

    Pretty sure you are only allowed to keep the meat from a road kill. Everything else must be disposed of.

    You CANNOT legally keep antlers or any other part of the animal but venison to be consumed. You can only keep antlers in NJ from a legally tagged deer killed while hunting.
