"...but he didn't get the meat" WOW!
« on: September 26, 2009, 08:38:45 AM »
I was just talking to an "acquaintance" who said:
"My cousin just got a big bull with his bow, he had this huge rack in the back of his truck, he didn't get the meat.."
"He didn't get the meat?", I asked.
Reply,"He was helping somebody else pack meat out"

Ok so it's a shaky, third or fourth hand story but have respect for the animal for Christ sake!

Thats specifically why Alaska has the rule the antlers are LAST LOAD, or you are busted.  They also require ribs in a lot of places and NECK MEAT.

 :yeah:


I got my elk this year it was an easy pack to the truck, I dragged the entire elk to the truck. And just to follow tradition of antlers being last. I lifted the Buttocks up first and then put the head in!!!!!!!

Yeah I just wanted to vent... odds that he has a legit excuse are slim but you never know. My buddies both packed their spike heads out first before setting up and going in after the quarters... but you don't really shoot a spike for the rack :chuckle:

He's not my cousin.

That is B.S. Grrrrrrrrrrrr this needs to be taken care of by the authorities.

Exactly Bone. I did not want to make two carries with my Dall sheep back many years ago, so I boned it out on the mountain, took all the meat including the neck meat, and the ribs for that day's meal plus the cape, skull etc. I was a load but I did it. Best part of the river crossing. I did not have any problem floating like I did in the morning with a light pack.

Well I know of a guy who stuck two different bulls in the blues and didn't recover either of them. Then he ended up shooting a real nice 7 x 6. Makes me sick to my stomach when I hear stuff like that. It happens everyday.

Not only that in a lot of units the meat has to still be attched to the bone on the quarters. Try that with a moose!!
 Too many people waste meat, thats how those laws come about.

I did.  9.5 miles out to the truck.   I got away without the neck meat because a Kodiak claimed it as ingested it.

Not opinion....as stated, AK state law.  You'll note every state is different.  Difference between AK and here is that they take their wildlife serious, and they'll nail you for twitchin incorrectly up there.  Very tight run ship.

It eleviates folks from bringing out the bones then jsut not going back for the meat.

It is all opinion for Washington State, Bone....

I for one packed the bone out first, then walked back in with a mule to pick up the rest.  If weather/spoilage isn't an issue I see nothing wrong with it either... :twocents:

Depends on where you hunt. Some places it's not an opinion, it's the law. Alot of us on this site hunt more places then just WA. It might not be law in WA. but it is for me. Meat before bone.  Meat spoils faster than bone and I would rather have a couple hundred pounds of meat over a rack ;)

OK guy's I have to chime in here.  I'm not trying to start a hornets nest here, but I have been reading stories of members hearing about unlawful hunting/fishing activity from this site.  My intent is not to put anyone down, but I must say that almost every post that reports the illegal activity ends with "i just had to vent, or something similar to that", but nothing seems to get reported! :bash:

The people that are out there doing horrific acts such as this one, will only continue to cause land to be closed off, new laws being enacted(that we all bitch and complain about), roads closures, reduced bag limits, and the list goes on and on.  

Folks WE MUST POLICE OURSELVES otherwise we are not going to have anything to pass on to our kid's, or in my case my Grand Kids, because these people are not getting reported like they should be!  The animals we hunt and fish deserve that respect, period!  They sure as heck can't do it!

In closing I want to reiterate that I am not trying to start a shet storm here, just trying to let everyone know that we need to join together and weed out the bad so we have a strong heritage for future generations.  Happy hunting and fishing everyone and be safe out there!  John

I agree, it they have no intention of taking any meat, then by all means turn em' in.  I can see why laws like this (meat before antlers) are put in place, especially because it'd be hard to "catch" someone not returning for meat although they said they would.  In my case this year, it just so happened that it worked out better for me to do it the opposite way.
