    Regulation question?

    So right before last Light you harvest a deer. Everything up to this point is legal. You search in the darkness but cannot find the deer. You go back the next day and in the sunlight you find it. But the coyotes and other animals have taken the best parts of the deer. Do you still legally have to register the deer? I think you should but I'm unclear on the law..

    You have to check in every deer you harvest. Doesn’t matter if something ate it.

    You are required to report that you hit one that night, via phone, then report when you find it.

    then the guys who think theyd play games with harvest dates would be like all over that.every friday before extorsion archery season starts you could call in a hit and hunt free on saturday openers. if you track a deer after a late shot the night before and loook the next day and to find it expired it should be checked in as a deer from that day. YOU DONT use the nite beforeS DATES. thats what coleman lanterns are for or the new crop of Neutral white L.E.D. flashlites. they are awesum sauce. i luv my Thru nites NEUTRAL WHITE FLSHLUGHTS https://www.amazon.com/ThruNite-Micr...BCMCYPFZD54A94

    This would only apply if the next day is "out of season". For example, you hit a deer on the last day of Fall Archery Season. The next day would be Permit Bow Season but you don't have a permit. You report the deer so it can be tagged with the Fall Archery tag even though you don't recover till the next day. Another example would be if you shot a deer on a Saturday during a firearm season. Since there is NO firearms hunting allowed on Sunday's, you couldn't legally tag the deer on a Sunday. If the next day is a legal day to hunt on your license or permit, calling it in is irrelevant.
    Enjoy life. It has an expiration date.
