The poor OP must be getting pretty tired of re-answering questioned that have already been asked.


Okay I went back to page #2 and read exactly what he wrote. "I gave them to the game warden so he could hang onto them" Nothing else was written in that post.
Why??? Do you not trust yourself with the antlers of a deer you shot? The one deer I have a shoulder mount on isn't as big as yours but it never crossed my mind to have anyone else hang on to them. If you would've done that you wouldn't be here now.

What is the reason he gave them to the warden is the question and there doesn't seem to be an answer unless I've missed it along with many others. Was he hanging onto them until an investigation was completed??

I do wish you the best on getting the antlers back. If this was a totally legal harvest they belong to you. Hopefully you've learned exactly what not to do with a set of antlers from a trophy animal.

Airport, you seem to be handling all these stupid questions, and the situation with a level head. Keep cool. Good luck with this bad situation...and remember, payback is a b#*ch.

Why the guy who took the antlers feel he was justified in doing so? Sounds like from your side of the story, he shouldn't feel that way.

Letís take a break and let the facts bubble up. Something is missing here. The antlers should not be part of the problem or solution. Neither should the sex of the deer if open to doe harvest.

After reading through all of this I do hope you get your horns back. I agree with not wanting to hunt anymore to. I remember as a kid the goal was to get meat for the freezer and if you happened to kill a big buck it was talked about all over town and folks was proud of you. Now with the big horn craze a fella can't just ask to hunt anymore. If he is lucky enough to have family or own his own land you dang sure don't talk about a big kill as all of the horn hunters get jealous and the rumors start. I have all but quit myself due to this BS. I do take the kids to hunt, but if they kill a biggun you won't be hearing of it.
Horn hunters have ruined deer hunting and deer management for that matter IMO

First of all congratulations on a beautiful buck. One like that does not come around every day. I can't for the life of me figure out why the other guy thinks that he should have the antlers. Can you shed any light on his mindset on this issue?


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

I would have a private and assertive conversation with him. Make sure he knows you are serious.

That is a dandy. Good stick.
It'd be sweet if you got it back.

Yup went back and read all the posts. I wouldn't of handled it the same way. Those antlers never would've seen the airport again if they're such a hot topic. If I was tight with a warden an arrangement would have been made to get them back and it wouldn't have been at the airport. The warden never would've had them to begin with either so there's that. A choice was made to involve others and this is the result.
I hope you get them back, they're yours. Sincerely good luck.

Hindsight is 20-20. I bet Airporttrapper would do it differently if he had it to do over again.

Nothing wrong with hunting trophies. We have the freedom to do that. Maybe those who don't like it will get their wish if the Dems get back in the White House.
My boys hunt big bucks and when they kill one nobody hears a peep about it.
