I have a piece of property that a farmer lets me hunt in Central Michigan. I went out to check my trail camera today and noticed the land owner (a dairy farmer) who borders his property has been dumping his dead cows in my property owners woods. The farmer dumping the cows doesn't own any wooded areas. I have also met this guy and he seems very shady. The smell is terrible and there seems to be a lot of them just piled up. I can smell it from about 100 yards away. Im gonna be real mad if Im sitting in my tree stand and I can smell those dang cows. I was gagging all the way back to my car!
My questions are..
Is this a health risk for the deer population?
I'm also wondering if its my place or not to ask the guy dumping the cows if he is allowed to be doing this?
