So this new law takes effect in Texas this year which allows you to debone the deer on site or something. I don’t think it matters to me, shooting a deer, gutting and having it processed. But, I see this “disposal” thing being defined, like burying the carcass 3’ under the ground along with another 2 options. I’m thinking it does not apply to me leaving the guts on the ground. Correct?

I read the regs by TPW was to "encourage" hunters to follow the disposal suggestions not require it.

Can a live deer get CWD from the carcass of an infected deer? Have there been other info from TPW other than this information?

I agree deer processing facilities will use this new regulation to add on a disposal fee. Interesting the DIY at home processing still allows you to dispose properly by commercial trash (preferred method) or approved landfill. or just return your disposal to harvesrt property hammer I'm glad I'll still get use of my $ increasing city commercial trash pickup at driveway....

So we can still gut, skin, and quarter deer, leaving the undesirable parts on the property where it was harvested, but then have to pay a dumping fee at the processor for the parts they don’t use? Am I understanding that right?

"These new regulations provide hunters more options when it comes to processing their deer to reduce that risk."

You gotta love this. Regulating something provides more options?

The only thing I got out of that link is that it sounds like you can now process a deer beyond boned quarters before you reach final destination. I bet the phones at TP&W will be ringing non-stop as word spreads about this new jibberish. After reading it several times I cant tell you what any of it means other than more red tape for someone just trying to enjoy the outdoors.

"Directly or indirectly disposing of the remains at a landfill permitted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to receive such wastes"

Probably what most processors already do, so nothing should change. Perhaps there are some rural processors that have been dumping the remains in a pasture on their own land and will need to now did a pit to dump it.

Now I am wondering about road kill. Since those belong to the state does that mean they have to go and bury each one 3' deep or haul it to an approved land fill?? hammer

This is about as silly as the Zebra Mussel regulations forcing people to wipe down their boats and trailers before they leave the ramp so they dont spread the Mussels to other water bodies all while flushing billions of gallons of that same water down stream through dams and spill ways. roflmao

"The new regulations, which will take effect during the upcoming hunting season, will allow hunters to debone a carcass at the site of harvest, provided proof of sex and tags are maintained until the hunter reaches the final destination. By leaving the unused parts at the site of harvest, the chance of spreading CWD to other parts of the state is greatly reduced. Meat from each deboned carcass must remain in whole muscle groups (i.e. not chopped, sliced or ground) and maintained in a separate bag, package or container until reaching the final destination."

I welcome this since I process my own deer anyway. I will now hang my deer in camp to debone and bag the meat without quartering. And set the bags of meat in the ice box or cooler until I leave for home. I will be a lot more efficient to be able to debone the meat with it hanging at camp than it ever was at home one quarter at a time. I don't see any red tape with that.

The new code looks to be directed at "harvest". If it or a separate regulation were to include road kill it should be the same. Left at sight of kill for the buzzards, nothing has to be done. If transported from the location it would have to either be take to a landfill or buried.

"These disposal measures apply only to unused carcass parts from native deer (i.e. white-tailed deer and mule deer) harvested in Texas that are being transported from the property of harvest. If carcass parts from native deer species are not being transported from the property of harvest, these carcass disposal rules would not apply."

After reading the article, it is great that TP&W allows us to trim down to the whole mussels is a good thing. I don't see any problems so far.

CWD positive deer can shed the prions into the environment, meaning soil and then plants can take them in. The deer could then eat the plats an have the prions in them.

Just put your bones in the trash they are saying or leave them at the kill site. You can bury them if no commercial trash service.

Bone it out at camp has been my favorite way for years. Guts, hide, bones all stay on the place for the critters or go back into the dirt for future growth just as when an animal dies in nature. Shoulders are the only part I do not bone out at site most of the time. In Mississippi that has been the way for years and bringing deer back from there there to Texas have documentation that the meat was harvested in another state.

I can bone out one at least twice as fast hanging opposed to quartering then taking home for that chore.

Plus like Bobo pointed out if you do take it to the processor no charge for boning it out.

Believe me. If you take your deboned hind quartered meat as well as other pieces with no bones to the processor, they will definitely be raising the price to slice and package the meat. When I take the hind quarters of deer to my processor, they weigh the whole hind quarter, which is unboned and charge you by the pound to have it sliced and packaged. A 30 pound hindquarter, cut up, deboned and packaged gives you maybe 8-10 pounds of meat. You get charged to process bone weight too which is thrown away.

I’ve never understood the beyond qtr law, one of the dumbest laws. as if Texas has a huge declining deer population anyway.
