MARTINO: Transporting deer? Keep it covered

Hunters should be respectful of those who dislike sight of game

(Continued)

However, the idea that bagged game should be transported covertly does not sit well with everyone. Some worry about the message it sends.

“I am proud of my hunting heritage and I am not going to hide it,” says Bob Likens, who has hunted deer for nearly 50 years. “I have taught all of my children and grandchildren to be responsible hunters and to be proud of it.”

For me personally, I think the whole matter of transporting wild game boils down to a matter of respect. We, as hunters should be respectful of those who may not hunt just as they should respect those of us who do. And as Pyne said, “Why cause any problems when you don’t have to?”

DEER HUNTING RESULTS

The temperatures are getting cooler and crops are coming out. The numbers of those collecting deer have been increasing with each passing week. Taking an Indiana whitetailed deer is a notable outdoor accomplishment, one worthy of recognition. If you have encountered success, but checked in your animal electronically or in another location, please feel free to contact me for inclusion in this column.

Here are the names of area sportsmen and women who have taken deer during the first portion of our early archery deer hunting season. This information, which includes field-dressed weights, was provided by Bryant’s Outdoor Store, Simpson’s Deer Processing and U.S 31 Bait and Tackle.

Jeff Mulkey — 105-pound doe; Rondal Sizemore — 115-pound doe; Jonathon Fording — 60-pound button buck; Ryan Roark — 60-pound button buck; Steve Carroll — 100-pound doe; Jamie Miller — 90-pound doe; Adam Fouch — 100-pound doe; Don Hochstedler — 150-pound, eight-point buck; Robert Justice — 120-pound doe; Raymond Miller — 160-pound, 10-point buck; Ed Heaton — 125-pound doe; Dan Harvey — 115-pound doe; Josh Fording — 110-pound doe.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
