I would guess because he thought he missed. When I shoot deer that drop, the recoil often prevents me from seeing the drop in my scope. He shot, saw a bunch of deer run off and assumed he missed.

The grass may have been short where he "should" have seen the deer, but maybe again, the deer's color is a very good camoflauge. That and a slight roll or hill in the pasture will prevent a deer from being see if it's laying flat, like the dead deer here.

Still no excuse for at least not investigating to see if there was a hit.

I know in Wisconsin its a law to tag your deer as soon as possible, so there could be a legal issue there

Im not sure what the laws there are, but in KS a farmer can get a permit to shoot deer (if there are too many and are causing damage to the crops) basically year round. They have to leave them lie after being shot tho. No reason to jump to conclusions and condemn the guy as a bad hunter or horrible person. He could be just protecting his crop and livelihood as a farmer.

That is exactly what I was thinking. I would walk over and just tell him you noticed he shot a deer. You are wondering if it would be helpfull if you could hunt them on his land. He might thank you and give you access. Approaching him offering to help is much better than approaching him with accusations.

My BS meter just went off.

While you paint a possible picture, it is HIGHLY unlikely. If I were a farmer having problems with too many deer, I'd be smart enough to allow my family to come over and do some hunting.

If no family, then I'd have NO PROBLEM finding people to come over and thin the herd and get some good venison in the process. But to shoot a deer and let it lay there to waste, regardless of the situation, is pathetic. And that's my opinion on that.

==================
Also, this is an edit... an extension to my previous post here...

jsuth, this is nothing personal towards you. It may look like it, but it is more of an upset for me in regards to the "Policies" that are there to allow such a thing to take place. In this day and age, with people supposed to be intelligent, I find it difficult to grasp a policy that allows wanton waste of deer, without first finding if there are interested parties in either hunting the deer themselves or at the very least, putting the venison to good use.

It was in Missouri a few years ago, when a farmer had gotten nuisance tags and my brother in law was granted the exclusive privilege to be the "designated shooter". He alone was allowed to shoot and it had to be does.

I went with him to "exterminate" the deer. It was night time. I held the spotlight and he shot right over the cab of the truck.

Each kill had to be reported to the game warden (conservation officer) and the deer could be "donated ". It was also required that the game warden be informed as to whom the recipients of the deer were. Needy families were chosen.

Rant all you want to but it was legal.

Who here would ****** rant about that?

It's a win-win! Farmer gets herd population under control and the venison gets used appropriately.
