Hunting Dilemma: Two Hunters Shoot the Same Deer -- Who Gets to Keep it?

Jim, one of my hunting buddies, recently told me a story about when he and his Dad were hunting years ago and Jim took a long shot at a buck as it was jumping over a log. "I was proud of myself, it was quite a shot," he said. "I waited after it went down for a couple of minutes. And then it got up and took off."

Generally the first person that gets to the dead deer owns it.

In my younger days I shot a doe at about 100 yards. After waiting 10 minutes I left my stand and went to find the deer. Another hunter claimed it. We had words, and as he was first to find the animal, I left him with the deer.

About an hour later, he drove up to the house with a deer. Because I was so insistent that I had shot a deer, he went back and found a second dead deer. We had each shot a deer, but not the same one.

Another time I was in a tree stand when a drive pushed a bunch of does into me. I picked out a large doe and shot her in the head. I stayed in the tree because I didn't want to disrupt the drive. Eventually the deer bolted and the standers emptied their rifles as the deer broke into the open. One of the standers than came into the woods and found the deer I shot before I could get out of the tree.

I showed them that the deer was head shot and dropped right where she was shot and that it was not one of those that they was shooting at.

They knew that I shot it but there were three of them and they wanted the deer.

The only reason that I got the deer was because it was on the property adjoining mine and the hunters knew that I would have to answer to my neighbor about their conduct if they took the deer.

Should have read, " they would have to answer to my neighbor about their conduct if they took the deer."
