How does it work in your state? Road kill deer
if you hit a buck with your car, do you get to keep the antlers? I'm not sure how it works here in pa either anyone know?

In IL you can keep the rack, but you need to call the DNR and get a tag for it, proving it was a roadkill.

In NY you can keep the entire deer providing you have a carcass tag completely filled out and endorsed by a Law Enforcement Officer.

Ten dollars a point in PA.

to claim the carcass you have to call the PA game comm and they will issue you a number to tag the deer, i think it is a dollar a point for the rack .

Or just pick it up and go. I know alot of people here in NY don't call anyone, they hit it and leave it. If you happen to stop to help they tell you, that they don't want it. You could have it if you wanted it. Where I live theres no cell signal. Not going to go home and call and wait, just pick it up and go I say. They are just going to let you have it anyhow.

In MI, if your vehicle is driveable, you have to take the deer to the nearest state police post or sheriff's office. They give you a road kill carcass tag and you can keep the whole deer including antlers. This is how it went down when I hit an 8pt buck last Nov.

Get a salvage tag from a Highway official or the DNR before removing it.

Here locally, we try not to hit deer with our vechicles. We try to get behind someone driving going way to fast and when they hit a deer we just ask if they're ok and then if they'd help load it in the back of the truck

Here in Montana they waste the animal. It is illegal for anyone (even chairities) to use any part of road killed animals.(even elk and moose and deer) The state hauls it to the nearest landfill. That is a crime in my opinion. We have many needy people that could use it. But Mt FWP does not manage for wildlife on our public lands. They manage for the cattle industry. (in my opinion) Pierce51

In Nebraska, you are allowed to field dress it and take it home. Then call the police and they will issue you a road kill tag. You can keep the antlers and everything associated with the deer.

Not here. It's illegal to touch roadkilled deer. You can call a game warden, and he'll come give you a permit for the deer so you can take it, but he will cut the antlers off and keep them.

In Ohio you just get a permit from Highway patrol or local police and its yours. If you hit it it should be entitled to it.
March 9th, 2010, 04:19 PM
And I think that is why a lot of states won't let you have them. They don't want people hitting deer on purpose.
