Glad you found his rack, if nothing more. How far was he from where you last tracked him to? I realize the coyotes could have moved him some, but just wondering if he was close to where you last looked, or a long ways off in a different direction from where you looked?

Be aware that to legally possess the rack you need to check it in.

would this still hold true if a person found a deer that someone else had shot

so if you are in the woods and you stumble onto a deer skull and keep it, you have to check it? or does it just apply to deer that were obviously killed by a hunter?

It applies to a freshly killed animal and not a bleached skull.

And, before the question, the "freshly killed" part will be a discretionary call on the part of the officer, so there is not a ticking clock from illegal to legal.

I found a dead 10pt 2 years ago with no apparent cause of death way back in the woods,it was fresh,less than a day i'd say.And I cut the head off,and thought i'd do the right thing,and call it in,like the guide says...county WO said he needed it so he could have it tested for EHD.Well it tested positive for EHD,but he said i'd never get the head back.
