Well that makes sense now

None of it makes sense-who hunts at an airport?

Its a property owned by the airport, not actually on the airport

Great deer and hope it works out for you! Trying to understand chronological order of the event. You had written permission to hunt the property ,you hunted during a legal deer season(?) with a legal deer tag. Now this is when you lose me. You killed the deer ,gutted the deer and took it home or processor . Why did you feel the need to give the antlers to the warden for safe keeping?

He already explained that. Good luck, and hope the jerk loses his job. Doesn't sound like airport authority is even a paying job.

The moral of this story is once the deer is field dressed, process the meat for eating.
The legal field will not be as passionate about the non-edible portion of the carcass as the hunter is.
That's a non-issue.

And on city property to boot.
The deer is going to hang where the top-of-the-airport property food chain chain says it'll hang at this point.
He knows that or he wouldn't have snatched them in the first place.

Bummer how people is and what people does.

I don't think this guy is the top dog.
About 40-45 yrs ago, before bobcats were even recognized as being in SE Nebraska, a kid shot one. They were not protected. He showed it to the local game warden, who confiscated it, had it mounted, and put it in his house. He ended up losing his job for taking the bobcat from the kid..........so there is justice. Sounds like the DA is on the right side and hopefully it'll turn out well.

We can hope the antlers end up with the hunter who legally harvested them. Justice is a good thing.

This sounds like a cut and dried case of antler envy.

AirportTrapper was hunting legally and with written permission. He saw trouble coming after he killed that monster buck and handed the antlers over to a game warden for safe keeping. After getting them back they were stolen from his office by someone with bad antler envy.

I hope you successfully prosecute the guy.

If it were my buck and I was aware of the potential trouble those antlers would have never been in my office where they were vulnerable to theft.


Eh...wot?

The game warden dropped them off to me at the office. They were taken the same day from behind locked doors.

Some airports have a "buffer zone" at the end of runways for a variety of reasons, safety, noise, expansion, etc. I have hunted a "buffer zone" property own by the airport before, strictly controlled but open to the public.

my exact thoughts.

If it was me and if and when I got them back I'd destroy them and video it.
Then send the video to the thief.

My dad had a friend who hunted airport property all the time. The pictures of the deer he passed up would make most antler hunters green with envy. He hunted a smallish county airport that nobody thought to even ask permission to hunt.

The deer, for the most part, are not harassed, eat really good, and grow old. We used to go in after he got his deer and trap coons. It was nothing to go 30/30 on traps set around the dumpsters.

I managed an airport for 9 years and we had a permit to shoot coyotes, deer, turkeys anytime but at that time you had to cut the antlers in half if there was over so many points on a buck and if you gave the meat away you had to issue them a receipt and log in where it went and send the information to the state at the end of the year. Bad enough hitting a deer with a car, way worse with an airplane.

I wish there was a virus that would make all the deer not grow antlers. We didn't have a deer season till I was in high school and it sure was a different time than today. I think all this antler worship is a sickness, unbelievable how some people act.

Why don't you file a police report if they were stolen from you?

He said what he did. I am asking why he felt the need to give possession up? Makes no sense ,your legal let them accuse all they want. They want em , let them get a court order and the sheriff !
