How many of you guys will stop to get a set of antlers off a dead buck? And will you go out of the way to get them? I have got alot of nice racks like this,but I drive a truck so I have an unfair advantage!

Smell never really bothers me, if the kill is fresh the whole thing comes home with me and I see what meat I can salvage. If the horns are the only thing that is good then I just take the head by cutting all the way around the neck and twist until the neck snaps.

I know we have to call here in PA and I think they give you like a number or something, kinda like on your hunting license. But I'm not totally sure.

I'm always searching for road kill bucks. I have a massive 7 pt. that I picked up off the highway and it's in velvet!! That was 3 summers ago. I also carry a gerber bone saw and a plastic garbage bag in my jeep at all times just in case. I would just cut the skull plate and if it was fresh I'd take out the back straps and probably feed the rest to the yotes. I've picked up fawns in the summer and feed the yotes and even a bear to help detract them from the live population on our property.

When I get my license and a truck, I am goin to carry a hack saw around with me. We cant pick up road kill in Jersey with a permit but there nothing saying you cant cut the horns off and bring them home.
