What are the laws about shooting a deer and it ending up on another persons property? Can you legally go onto another persons property and retrieve it? I know what the laws are in Illinois, being a hunter myself. I'am by no means against hunting as long as one benefits from the kill.(FOOD!!) I was wondering about the laws of the Northwoods. I do not hunt up there but my family owns many many acres of prime hunting that are being used without permission. Someone also field dressed their "trophy" and left the remains on our well traveled path.

Thanx for any info one can give. Also, have a great Thanksgiving to all!!!

You are not allowed to go on someone else's property, posted or not to get a deer. If you do you are trespassing. If you shoot a deer and it ends up on someone else's property you are pretty much SOL.

If the land is forest crop or one of the other open hunting area's you might be OK. Best thing to do is check with a neighbor. Better then getting cited for trespassing.

Sorry that you've had to experience that. Yes, there are 'slob' hunters and no, they (or anyone else for that matter) should not be on your property without your consent.
The only way to retrieve a game animal when the property owner denies permission is to contact the DNR. The warden will take possession of said animal and the 'hunter' will have right of first refusal to purchase the animal. That is my understanding anyway. Things may have changed. Maybe MJC135 can ask C244 how that would work.
