Nebraska, Tracking wounded deer at night


(Genoa, NE)

Imagine this. In Nebraska, you shoot a deer say, 15 minutes before sunset. The deer runs off into the trees. You go follow it's blood trail, briniging along with you a flashlight, your knife, your weapon, and all the other essentials. You hear a pickup pull up next to your deer stand. It's the game warden, and you are out after sunset with a gun and a flashlight. As you probably know, it is illegal to night hunt in Nebraska for deer(this is commonly called spotlighting).What the game warden saw (you walking around after dark with a flashlight and a gun) is illegal and if you can't convince him you were trailing your deer, you can get fined, and possibly lose your PRIVLEGE to ever hunt deer again. FELLOW HUNTERS, WE NEED TO GET THIS LAW CHANGED!!

This is a hunting blog for real hunters. Take your lies and advertising somewhere else. No one wants to hunt on your pick your deer and kill it ranch.

Isnt that ironic, dont ya' think , Its like----
by: Brr Black

You can hunt pigs, racoons and coyotes at night with flashlights and night vision gear. But if your tracking a deer- thats illegal! Makes no scense to me. Its probably because some jack-asses hunt illegally at night for deer.Making it a pain for the rest of us. Hey- bad guys, knock it off! But then again if the game warden could actually see the blood trail you were followin'it seem like he/she would let you finish what you started. Like the other fella' said on the comments, he left his deer over-night and it got eaten' by coyotes. Ive heard similar storys from other hunters.

The One that Almost got away...
by: Spike

I saw the deer in my scope. I pulled the trigger. he was shot, but went running into the sunset. I looked for 3 hours. Gave up and went to find him the next morning. Turns out he was 450 yards from the lodge at www.peartreegameranch.com. Thank you very much, deer.

coyotes-!
by: B.R.Yanney

A few years back I hit a buck a little farther back than I would have liked, in archery season.I tracked him about 400 yards untill he hit a soybean field. As it was getting dark I decide to wait untill morning.As I had seen hunters do on various TV shows.When I found him in the morning all I had was the front legs and head. I thought maybe it was a bear, because there was one in the area.But All around the seen there was coyote tracks.

Why Not Wait?
by: Bowdog

If you're hunting gun season, chances are the temperature is below 40 degrees at night. Why not let the deer lay until first light and pick up the tracking job then?

tracking
by: Robert

as I hunt public land in fear this every time. I have been in a bit late tracking a bow deer. Also dragging out a just befor quiting time gun deer. I hunt several miles in so it is late after I get out with a deer. I have seen the warden on my way in a few times and have told him how far I go in. I hope he will take that in mind if and when he does see me come out late.
