    Interesting... Never heard of this before but that is unfortunate if true.

    do the right thing and let it lay! wink wink.:devilish:

    this may be new for Ky but it's typical out west. the reasoning is, if not controlled in this manner, it encourages poaching.

    Sounds like the logic behind gun control in a way though

    Call KDFWR 800 858-1549
    There has been no change. Local LEO issues disposal tags, like always.

    That is the trouble with kdfw, you can talk to someone one time and they will tell you something and the next person you talk to will tell you something else. A few years ago my dad killed a deer on his own property and tagged it with a land owner tag, a few days later he went and killed another deer and used a state tag. we buy our sportsman license every year and it comes with 2 deer tags. Well I told him he still had another tag but he called Frankfort to make sure he did, well they said no even though you killed it on your property and tagged it under land owner you used both tags. I was pretty sure that they were wrong so I had him call a game warden and he told him you still have a state wide tag to use, my dad harvested his 3rd deer that year and gave it to a needy family that we know.

    unless I'm missing something, sounds like dad killed an extra deer unless the zone he was hunting allowed more than two deer. correct if i'm wrong, landowners don't get to double dip on the harvest limits.
     
  12. Yeah we are going to turn them in.Sure thing.:devilish:

    Depends on zone....can't "double dip", but can kill 2 on landowner, and 2 with state tag , assuming zone limit is 4. 1 buck limit.
