    It was early the second day of gun deer season. I hadn't gotten a deer yet so when I seen a nice doe cross the alfalfa field 200 yards away I didn't waste any time putting it down. I singled to my dad I had a deer. We walked across the field together. I asked him if he wanted to tag it so he would definantly get a buck tag next year. (we have on and of earn a buck around here). Any way it didn't matter cause when we got up to the doe it morhed into 6 pointer. MY bad.:Cry: Last thing I wanted was a small buck:doh:

    wow, around her if you shoot something and someone else tags it... your done like dinner if fwp catches you...
     

  3. I sure wouldn't post what you wanted to do, I don't think that would be legal in any state. I'm not saying I wouldn't do the same or that I have never done it and I am sure alot of us here have or thought about doing it, but I would not post it on here or any site. Any ways, that buck should make some good eating, maybe your next buck will morph in size just like your doe did:rockon: . Maybe your dads doe will out size your buck, good luck to him.

    in iowa, if you're hunting with a group, any member of the group can put a tag on the deer, and you can keep hunting with the group after your tag is full. As long as the deer gets tagged with a valid tag, it shouldnt matter whose it is.

    Tomorrows the shotgun opener in IA, gots to go out and get me some does:peace:

    Didn't mean to get any one excited. I guess different parts of the country live by different rules. I recently heard something about not being able to hunt on sunday in some states. What's that all about???? And another thing, has anyone ever seen any kind of rule or regulation on shooting a wounded animal if you don't have a tag??????????:noidea:

    Yeah as long as the state gets their $$$, and the animal is properly tagged. They don't hassle us in my area. As long as the tag holder is present when it's shot...if it's your wifes tag and she's at the mall you might have a problem :doh: ...

    Definately some strange laws around in different states. Around here if you shoot it then you had better be the one that tags it. Never heard of shooting a wounded animal even if you do not have a tag.:noidea: Why would you be out hunting without a tag.

    That is an understatement.

    I will have to check on the laws in Indiana. I would hate to see an animal suffer but would not like to have my gun,bow,truck,and hunting privileges taken from me.

    I am with Bowman. I would give it all up, I don't like any animal to suffer because of stupidity. That is why I practice, practice, practice so I can make a clean fast kill with minimal suffering. And about someone else tagging it alot of people do it just not alot talk about it.
