    My town's police department will respond to a deer-vehicle incident, "clean up the scene of the accident," and have a cook-out a few days later at one of the stations. lol

    In my state all animals such as as deer or moose MUST be turned over to the state. You get caught keeping one and you are arrested for illegal possesion outside of hunting season and in Alaska that is not a good thing.

      I guess if they are accidently killed and laying in the road it's OK? How are you doing, haven't seen you in a while??

    As long as the gastrointestinal tract has not been ruptured, chances are the meat has not been adversely affected, at least not in deer. First rule of dressing out an animule is to use a tie wrap to seal off the top and bottom of the entrails before you remove and then only do so gently and without knocking the lining with your knife. Take your time and you should be ok.

    He's probably developed a rock solid digestive tract from all the asphalt he's swallowed. Good immune system, too.
