Went out to run my trap line this morning and came upon a couple of beauties in one of my pastures:



Don't know the season or bag limits on them so I called my neighbor (who owns a herd of them) to ask. Needless to say, he showed up in about 15 minutes with a couple of his cowboys to repossess these two. He said there was no season or bag limit, but that he'd be glad to buy me a bottle of my favorite adult beverage for reporting their escape from his high-fenced place.

For some reason I thought I remembered the government got involved a couple years ago about stuff they know nothing about and made it to where you have to have a special permit or something to shoot those, even behind a high fence. Not 100% on that however.

Not that I've ever heard of. You can spotlight those things year round if you want. OP good on you for calling your neighbor and not your friends to have a BBQ.

Just like cattle: two cowboys on horses, and a dog. The cowboys flanked 'em, the dog rode drag, and they ran (walked, really) them into a cattle trap and then up into a trailer they had backed up into place. Very docile creatures and they acted like they'd been through the drill before!

If it had been a huge 200" whitetail buck from your neighbors high fence do you still make the call? LOL.

Those are some beautiful critters. I'm not familiar with all the exotics, what are they?

I remember there being talks a few years ago, I guess they were going extinct in Africa and they were saying because of that we wouldn't be able to hunt them here anymore. I guess that went by the wayside. Now I want to do some light googling on this.

Nathan, I wouldn't be able to tell if the huge whitetail "belonged" to anyone. Low fence on two sides; high fence on the other two; no telling where it might have come from. These two animals could have come from only one place! If that hypothetical 200 inch whitetail were tagged in any identifiable way, I would have called my neighbors and let them know. I would have allowed them to have their hunters come and see if they could collect him. A big 'un like that is worth a whole lot of money! And I don't think two cowboys and a dog could round up a whitetail of any size!

BTW, my neighbor just called and told me that they found the breach in their high fence: a nice, 5 foot high by 4 foot wide panel had been cut out and then loosely wired back into place. Some poachers with bolt cutters were getting set up to either kill some and drag them out, or try to herd them into a trailer that they were going to put into place. I think they were going kill them; can't imagine trying to move them around at night.
