That's one of the places politics comes in. The sheriff's department leases buildings from the airport.

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 !

I thought if the game warden proved I was legal they would drop it.

Bad enough hitting a deer with a car, way worse with an airplane.

We have same permit here but no rules on what to do with it. We donate to the wildlife and fisheries.

We now have a thermal scoped rifle and will be conducting night shoots

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.


I'd rather mail him a signed picture of me holding the antlers

Just saw the post about the sheriff leasing from the airport. What a convoluted mess. My other thought is ask your game warden buddy about illegal possession. If the guy has no license, carcass tag or other conveyance doc from game n fish, illegal possession may be a thing to look at.

I sure hope your next report isn't that the DA is too worried about politics to press charges. But that happens too.

Good luck

Iíve hunted three different airport properties. We used to hunt land owned by the Reading regional Airport. It was some of the best rabbit hunting Iíve ever experienced.


Eh...wot?

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.

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


I hope you nail the guy!

Why did a game warden ever have the antlers to begin with? After you harvested a deer that size I see no reason the antlers need to leave your house or possession other than to go to a taxidermist. If your worried about safe keeping invest in a safe of some kind and keep them there in your own home.

You guys who are Johnny-come-lately to this thread really need to go back to the beginning and read all the posts before asking at this point in the thread "why did you give them to the game warden".
The poor OP must be getting pretty tired of re-answering questioned that have already been asked.

If the sheriff has a conflict of interest, Get the state police involved.

The deer that are shot at the airport here in town, have to be donated to the local food bank. Antlers are supposed to be destroyed. Removing the deer is done for the safety of the planes. Itís a removal not a hunting trip in the eyes of the city. Iím just guessing but Iíd say thereís some of the same going on here. If not, file theft on the person that took them and go pickup your antlers with the game warden.

^^this is how I'm seeing this situation too, but Im still confused as to why you needed a GW to prove you were legal. Wouldnt that have already been determined by airport staff allowing hunting there?.....maybe not.


Thank God For Your Blessings!

The deer was not killed ON the airport under the permit. Different property they own. If it was under the permit it would be a different situation

I'll also add I have killed 3 bucks between 150-160 inches and they weren't an issue. The 171 happens to be 1 inch away from his best however.

No kiddin!. This should play out well.
After you get the antlers back, post the guy's address and let BLM take over. laugh

From what I gather the job you have must be a extremely great job that you couldn't replace or I figured you would just go to the guy beat him till he gave you the antlers back.
