I seem to recall that roadkill could be taken if one had a license for the animal. Maybe the asshole getting run through the head kind of taints the meat?
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Depends on the state. If you hit the deer in some states the cops can write out a permission slip to keep it (for the processors) while other states take the corpse and donate it to a food bank. Best talk to someone who knows the laws in your area.

RE: 24 hours to live
Here in Michigan - it is now legal to pick up a road killed deer. (Only deer.... I dunno why you can't take an opossum or a raccoon...) It used to require a "roadkill permit" from a law enforcement officer.  No longer.

Rule of thumb with roadkill - one side is usually untouched. You can usually get the backstraps and one rear haunch. The gut is usually a mess. 

The other consideration is how long it had been laying. In cold weather - if it is still warm you are good to go.if bloated - it's coyote bait.

Best recovery method is usually caping the back - taking off the backstraps and good rear haunches. More wasteful than gutting and standard butchering - but less wasteful than leaving it to the crows.

We get donated roadkill for our canids at the Endangered Wolf Center. Fun to watch a pack of African Painted Wolves make a buck disappear in ten minutes, hooves and horns left for toys.

That's a wrap.

Whacked 2 little does this morning. 1 heart shot. 1 head shot. Both 90 yards with a .450. Both DRT. Neither ran a foot.

...

Freezer is going to be full - and got all racks filled in smokehouse.


Life is good.
