    I put mine on a strip job from my home but you may have to drive out to the country to take care of business. I wouldn't put them in the trash. You may get a letter in the mail from the county. I have seen it happen.

    double trash bag them if you can't get out to the county somewhere. Ask around on the varmint hunter forum and see if a coyote hunter would like them.

    Please please please don't dump it all in one place on a WMA. There is a spot near the parking area on one that I rabbit and squirrel hunt that is almost unbearable to go to because it is the communal dead stuff dump. Deer scraps, near whole deer (some folks apparently just cut the back straps out without gutting the deer) and dead dogs. A very nasty situation.

    Spread out a leg here and there and the hide somewhere else. Scavengers can find and make off with a piece at time.

    I quarter mine out in the field and go ahead and debone the rear 1/4's right there so all I'm taking home is the meat and the front shoulders and all I have to throw in the garbage is the bone from the front shoulder. I put them in a garbage bag and send them on their way.

    Double bag it and put it in the trash. I have a big garbage can that they have to use the truck to dump. Never been a problem.

    I chop all the bones a scrap up into small portions and boil them in a pot. Then freeze them in old walmart bags, In the winter when its cold outside I feed them to the dogs. They need the extra protien this time of year.
    The wife perfures I do this out on the grill. She says it stincks up the house and When I cook It up, I also tend to sing. The same song that I learned as a child. Some of you may recall it .

    I double bag mine and take them to the Fayette County landfill. They only charge a dollar or two for disposal. Not a big deal.

    Get some "Contractor Bags" from Home Depot. Very heavy plastic bags, and very large, you can put an entire deer in one, hide, bones, head etc. Then, I zip tie it shut and double bag it incase a bone does puncture it. Never had an issue yet. Just through 2 away like that and they were in my can right next to my back door for several days and never smelled a thing.

    Are you telechecking them before you do that?

    You will most likely be given a ticket for a cooler full of meat with no confirmation number.

    I just take mine and dump them in QuackrStackr's back yard. He's too old and feeble to catch me.

    You don't have any problems dumping them in the back of my truck, for sure.

    Sure do but thanks for asking!! I usually whip out the handy dandy Cell phone and telecheck as soon as I have recovered the deer.
