Couple questions - Most about deer hunting are clearly answered in the IDNR digest all the way up to disposing of the carcass.
Ok, so a person harvested a deer and cleaned the deer but the remaining carcass needs to be dealt with.
Assuming only the skeleton and the hide are left -
1. What is the proper disposal (legal method) on
A. Private Property
B. Public Property
2. During disposal of the carcass - is the tag required to remain on the animal until it rots off or is it allowed to remove the tag?
3. If an animal is shot and the animal clearly has some problem with the meat - disease, wound damage, found the wounded deer 2 days later after shooting it on a warm day, etc. Is there a Wanton Waste law for disposing of the carcass with meat on it?
4. Is field dressing the deer on public land allowed? Is it still allowed if multiple deer are field dressed in the same location (gut pile)?
5. Does IDNR publish locations for deer scraps to be disposed at? (Indiana has a list)
6. Does shooting a deer legally and cutting only it's antlers or entire head off leaving the remainder of the deer intact constitute as wanton waste?
7. Does IL enforce the federal wanton waste law?
