"How was the dinner, dear?"

"Excellent, honey. What was that I tasted a hint of? 5w-30 or 10w-30?"

I've had meat from several deer hit by cars. It's just meat, you just can eat the damaged parts. No big deal.

It makes sense to take home fresh road kill and serve it there. Scraping it up when you don't know how long it's been out or what animals have been at it? That's idiotic, and negligent if you're donating the meat.
 
2013-03-21 07:38:57 AM
Its perfectly reasonable, as long as you were the one who hit it.

Andrew Zimmern featured some road-kill on an episode of bizarre foods America that I saw recently.

I'm from Connecticut. I used to watch my neighbor butcher road kill deer all the time.
 
2013-03-21 07:52:15 AM
Found roadkill?  No way.  Who knows how long it's been there or what's decided to gnaw at it before you?
Personally made - why not?  You ever seen the kind of damage a deer can do to a vehicle?  Hell yes.  As soon as I peeled it off the grill of car I'd slap it down on the one in my backyard.

IIRC, the only laws pertaining to this in South Carolina is that you have to tag the animal, assuming it is in season and you have another tag in the first place.

I remember the first time I hit a deer.  I was 17 years old and my parents let me drive back from our neighbors.  I was going up a hill, and a deer ran right into our car.  The impact nearly snapped one of its legs off, but it hobbled into the nearby woods to die.  My parents called the police, and a sheriff came out, found the deer and shot it.  We took the deer home, skinned it, and hung it out on the box elder tree in the front yard to cure.  It was delicious.  That's the Wisconsin way.

/So, yeah, I don't have a problem with the law.
 
2013-03-21 07:57:16 AM
So, why not put an iron cow-catcher on the front of an old truck and "harvest" some deer? Fresh as harvest day!

"Despite it's good intention, it doesn't pass the smell test for me," Van Dyke said.

I agree in more ways than one.

Taking a freshly killed deer home is one thing but scraping dead animals off the road and donating it to food banks without inspection just seems like asking for trouble.

I had a co-worker in the 80's that did just that.   He had a long commute into the sticks on a two lane highway with very wide shoulder (route 50 in VA), and claimed to get one or two a month.

I live in Wisconsin and unfortunately, you are right.  In Wisconsin, we have suicidal deer that jump out in front of cars (due to paranoia from being chased by people with guns). Wisconsin needs to invest in deer therapy. Maybe the deer will have a chance. Let's write Scott Walker and ask him and the Republican legislature to invest in deer therapy.  If you disguise it under a gun law or take services away from poor people, the Republicans will jump right on it.

I'm surprised that Montana currently has a law preventing eating your own roadkill.  Here in Michigan you get to eat what you run over - you have to notify the DNR, but once you do that it's dinnertime!

It's easy to tell the locals from the tourists in northern Michigan - when there's a flock of turkeys on the road, the tourists stop to gawk, the locals try like hell to run one over.

Speaking as a Northern Michigan native, let me say that some of us still get our food the old-fashioned way: a shotgun. The way god intended. So we can eat AND not wreck our cars for $50 worth of meat.

Sure, but firearms season is fairly short while automobile season is year-round.

Then again, I've never seen anyone intentionally try to hit a deer. Turkeys?  They won't even scratch the chrome when you hit 'em.

Conservative states have such great social safety nets that the poor are forced to eating roadkill.

I'm pretty sure that's the motive for outlawing it. Poaching is a big deal.

I've never had it, but there's no reason to think that roadkill would taste bad. Some of the meat would obviously be ruined by the collision, but, other than that, it would be fine.

A few years ago, a car hit a deer right outside my parent's house and my dad woke me up at 3am to help  him drag the thing to the back yard so he could hang and cure it. Waste not, want not. He hunts deer yearly so free meat - yay!

Would like to have seen Montana (pancakes).

Also, I remember seeing some Alaska State Troopers show on Netflix recently where they said that it's actually illegal in Alaska to leave a dead animal of substantial size whether you shoot it as a hunter or hit it with your car. Apparently if you don't want it then you're supposed to contact the authorities who then contact one of several charities that will harvest the salvageable meat and distribute it to the poor, which is a cool idea.

2 CSBs (weirdly, both involving my brother):
-He once dated a girl whose dad was a respected school superintendent. However, he grew up in "hill country" (he's a big ol' redneck as soon as he crosses into his home state), so he thought nothing of serving roadkilled deer at a BBQ, and the girl thought nothing of eating it. He was so revolted, he almost ended the relationship (but he got better. She has nice boobs).
-He once ran over a freshly roadkilled deer, fresh enough that it still had some...goop in the tank, shall we say. Apparently, the underside of the car got so coated that it smelled like BBQ for a week.

// there's also an apocryphal story about a Montgomery County (MD) sheriff's deputy who hit a deer so hard that its head came through the windshield
// killed it with his pistol from the driver's seat
// I suspect every deer-infested locale has stories like that, real and apocryphal

My dad knew how to do this but never taught me.  I've always been impressed by someone who could butcher a dear properly.

And It isn't just deer.  Stupid turkeys are also suicidal, but they can fly about as high as your windows.  Wife barely missed a low flying turkey.  If she was a few seconds earlier, it would have gone right through the driver side window.

/last summer while driving down 39 between point and portage late at night, hit a possum and a half hour later missed a deer.  Wife woke up screaming "DEER!" as I hit the brakes.  We were both very awake the rest of the way home.

My "nature boy" roommate was driving with his brother in winter came across a deer on the road that had just been hit (it was still steaming). So they cleaned it, dressed it, and we had pounds and pounds of deer meet in the fridge. I was part of a student organization and responsible for hosting a yearly BBQ thing. Told people it was roadkill when the party was winding down. ;)

Road kill it isn't worth the trouble, cyclists never have a enough meat on their on bones.
 
2013-03-21 10:34:45 AM
I don't know which is worse: that they need a law to keep people from scraping opossums off the road for dinner, or that the people of Montana think that's a law that needs repealing.

Its done all the time in michigan. Most of the people I know have a friend who would want to be called if they hit a deer.

Under Obamacare, the roadkill done gone and got itself better rights than you have!!

But seriously, if they want to eat random meat off the road, and blame big government for stopping them, more power to 'em.

PS, in Montana, NEVER let your dog out of your sight.  Kidnapping pets is an industry unto itself.

A friend of mine in Kentucky said they carry cans of spray paint in their cars so that if they spot a fresh kill on the way into work they can mark it and pick it up on the way home

And only in liberal states would it be illegal to shoot a deer/elk and waste the meat, yet be illegal for a person to hit a deer or elk with thier car and harvest the meat that is still good.

Just make ther person take the carcass home and dispose of it properly and you would also save the Wildlife departements some money while you were at it.  Win-win for everyone.
 
2013-03-21 11:59:13 AM
Glad to see the Wisconsin people have posted already.

Growing up here one knows you can take your deer home.  My kids yell at me to speed up when we visit my parent up north, hoping we can bring fresh venison as a hostess gift.

You can't run into deer when you are trying. It's only when you need to be somewhere and are running late. The damned things will purposefully get in your way and then jump in whichever direction you swerve. That's why we are planning to eat them. Part revenge, part warning to the rest of the deer population.

/pro tip: don't run into elk or moose-even if you kill them you lose
//pro tip for city kids: don't run into horses or cows, either

I once saw a car a couple hundred yards in front of me nail a pheasant. I slowed down, cracked the driver door, scooped it up and tossed it into the spare plastic shopping bag that was supposed to be the 'next' car trash bag; didn't even have to come to a complete stop.

It was delicious. Wife - almost twenty years later - still gives me grief that I fed her daughter roadkill.
