It will make poaching easier for poachers. Yes officer these 3 pheasant flew right into the bumper of my truck. Yes officer I found this 8 point on the side of the road. I guess the bullet hole came from some hunter that wasn’t able to track him. Yes officer this out of season doe got hit by the guy in front of me , I don’t know how the arrow got lodged in her shoulder.
    Besides no animal or bird that dies on the highway or elsewhere goes to waste. It all gets eaten by everything from foxes, coyotes, raccoons, various birds to multiple insects etc etc which is part of nature’s cycle of life.
    I admit I haven’t read the entire law but from what I know and understand I don’t think this is especially great legislation. California has sooo many problems and the legislature and governor are spending time on road kill legislation.
    All you have to do is get a bean bag round in your shotgun, hit the animal so they drop, then take a baseball bat and beat them to death. You say "sorry officer I hit it with my car/truck", just make sure the area "looks like" you hit the animal (you could also smear some blood on the hood).....Jetspray

    The legislature and the gov. don't hunt or fish for sustenance in any case. I think they should concentrate on the illegal growers that are destroying the forests with their gardening practices and trash/poison left behind......Jetspray

    There may be some details way down deep in the law that has nothing to do with Road kill, havn't had time to look it up but i plan to. Maybe nothing to it but many times they throw in some
    EXTRA stuff.

    20,000 Deer per year ? Wonder how accurate that is .

    Re: New California law

    When I was in Alaska we where on the road kill list. Got a call one winter night at -30. We grabbed a Sawzall and chainsaw and headed out. We got to the site cut it up and took it home. Had to put it in the basement to thaw out. Anything blood shot was cut off, and given to some sled dog owners. They mention in the article that the meat could get contaminated by glass, metal ect. Well that's not a issue as any of that entering the meat would produce blood shot the same as bullet fragments. Now I might be hesitant to recover a deer in hot weather unless I was there at the time of the collision or shortly after, no different than a August deer, or lope as far as care goes.
