If you hunt a deer can you only take part of the carcass?

If you shoot a deer can you just take part of it and leave the rest there?


Its for food. What does it even matter if im following "sportsman's code" I want it for food

    That depends on the jurisdiction. In many areas, you can be charged with a crime for killing then leaving a carcass. edit'

    It isn't "sportsmans rules" it is state and federal laws. You're not a hunter, you're a troll

    I only take the back strap and antlers if they are nice. Leave the rest . Worms gotta eat same as us.

    Some people field dress deer and only take maybe 1/2 of big ones because they can't carry more walking out 5 miles of brush- leaving something for scavengers is considered just one of those things for situation and coyotes got to eat also. Most hunters would try to take gutted deer out, take heart, liver while leaving rest of gut pile, lower legs, hooves, lungs- hungry hunters might even leave the horns/antlers. Survival hunting rules differ from 'sporting' rules and 'Poaching Meat' rules. Lakota and Shish Indie, Dineh hunting practice is everything gets back to cook pot, hide stretcher to be used.

      food. Vegans in country mid February starve or eat meat when they run out of canned beans.

    You can, but it is really frowned upon.
