Np dirtyBear. Im a little smarter now. I thank God im a Christian. Could have been alot worse. I feel like he finnished the deer off so I consider it his. But he broke the law by shooting 2 bucks and he lied to me and left me to track another 2 hours when he knew full well the deer was dead. Bonehead; I was very tired(been tracking for 3 hours) and I was 500 yards from the road. No way I could have dragged a deer that far.And I never spoke to him again after he went to get his buddy with the cart.

Actually, a similar thing happened to me with a very very nice 6x6 elk in the BLM land north and west of Craig, CO. I shot the Bull, he ran, another guy nailed him with a 7 mag and the elk went down. I tracked the blood to where these guys were gutting my elk and we DID have a confrontation. There were 3 of them and one took off to get a game warden on CB radio.

Long story short, GW showed up, heard both sides, I LOST. TOld me I shot him, but they killed him.

Last shot gives you claim on the deer.

If it weren't for that 5-point in the story, there would have been nothing *illegal* about what happened (just immoral due to the lying).

But he did break the law by killing them both.

I'll let this be a soapbox moment for a minute -

Every TN hunter should enter the Poaching Hotline # into their cell phone. You will inevitably have some sort of problem come up where you witness an illegal act, and having quick contacts is the only hope of being able to stop the offender.

Look here for the #'s to your particular region:

You give up mch easier than I would have! I would have called the local GW and informed him of the guy shooting 2 deer and would have let him sort this one out.

What more does the game warden need?I get so tired of reading that on here.Why would the gw not come out to check on the guy to see he shot both bucks?seems people call to turn poachers in every year and the gw never even goes.many stories on here of people calling the poaching line and never getting a return call.not trying to bash TWRA but i would think they would go to calls like this.

I did call the GW and he told me that his buddy would probably check one in and he the other. And it would be my word against his. GW did run his tags and called me back and said he did check in an 8 point.

I would have thanked him for gutting my 8 pt and started dragging since he said he only shot a 5 pt. Now if he said he shot the 8 pt then you would have been out of luck. did the GW say anything about his buddy checking in the 5 pt?

Not a word of the 5 point. But I saw both of them field dressed.

Tough one. Sounds like he took one to many. I would have waited for him just so I knew he lied, then quickly walked back to my truck and pulled all four valve stems from his tires. Just kidding about that last part.
