Retrieving deer

Friend at dusk, shot/hit a nice buck (of course per him :-) ) in any event ended up too dark to continue tracking. We were going to go out in AM (Sunday), until I read page 16 2021-2022. Quote “A person must have written permission when entering lands owned by another person or organization for the purpose of retrieving a deer”

The buck ended up in adjoining property, that he doesn’t have written permission. The owner is a company developing the land. Have to wait until Monday and ask a member of the construction crew. Not sure if they even know who the owner is.


Any recommendations?

How far across the property line is it? I'd imagine although technically against the rules, if you can drag it back over the property line within 50 yards/quickly, would be okay - arguing for trying to avoid wasted meat

In this case and intentions to save meat, id likely venture over and bring back. Remember red headlights don't put out a ton of light.

He was in about 50 yards, due to the light, he quit tracking. Tomorrow is Sunday, if deer is still alive he will need his bow to finish him off. So he will be breaking many laws….

I had too many olives to assist him, therefore we decided to hold off to AM

If the shot was good, he will find him dead. Arrow recovery? Blood dark or light? Bubbles in it?

I would NOT take a bow over on that property. A nice 8" fixed blade should be able to reach the heart if found still alive.
