Default Getting rid of dead bodies....

One thing I overlooked. What do you all do with your carcasses? I couldnt think of a decent place to get rid of it, so I dumped it in a known coyote stomping grounds. I hate to feed coyotes, but I really couldnt think of anything better to do with it.

Where I live they are considered municipal watse and are bagged up and put out with the regular curbside trash.

We have a pit that we dump them in on our place and it does make a good place to kill a couple hogs or yote's too!

i dump mine in a corner of my property and have a cam set up just to see what kind of critters are on my land. you would be surprised. just make sure its not near someones house. you get a hot day and they will be cussing you when it starts to stink.

I have the pleasure of taking them out to the back 40, in our established dumping spot...

Let me first say this topic is brought up from time to time and it is the most hilarious thread I have ever read on here. For some reason all of these posts crack me up. I have often wondered this same thing and I love the fact that leaving a carcass and guts in the woods is a perfectly acceptable way of dealing with them.

I have also been curioius to see just who shows up to do the clean up work. It's amazing that it gets disposed of so quickly. Also it is "all natural" so it has the green thing going for it as well. lol

Yes, I agree with not doing it near peoples houses if you can help it. Sometimes it would be kind of difficult I imagine if you are hunting backyard bucks?!

I have a DOT dumping area and I asked the DOT to dump carcasses.

My father in law will literally stuff the head legs and everything else into his curbside garbage cans. Picture driving down the street of a nice upper class subdivision and seeing two garbage cans with legs and a deer head protruding out of the top of them. No joke he won't even bother trying to bag it or break it down into smaller pieces. I think he likes to upset his uptight neighbors.
