Honestly officer! I hit the deer and thought it was dead, totally wasn't taking it home to Fark it!

She's legal age, in deer years....

Hey Kalamazoo! I actually have vacationed there as a youth.

Many locals are of the "I hit it, I'm a eatin it" mindset. And it's not like they notify the police either! Poor deer, can you imagine it telling the rest of the herd what happened?

"First thing this big smelly beast hit me, and as I lay in the road a two legger threw me in this box that moved" "No seriously!"...Then another two legger opened the box and I got away".."No, I havn't been eating the blue moss again..."

Had a redneck who worked with me, he and his buddies would poach deer on the weekends. He showed up on Monday a few times with deer hoof marks on his head and chest because the deer they'd jammed into the trunk was only knocked out. Apparently deers can do some damage with their cute little hooves.

The deer woke up, bit me in the back of my g** d**n neck and now is kicking the s**t out of
my car, now who gets the deer, me or the dog.

The driver is lucky the deer took off, it is highly unlikely he had the appropriate permit and would have been guilty of a felony if the officer had been able to examine the deer.

Michigan. Oh and did they have a warrant to search? What was the probable cause? LEO going for broke in the trunk.

I'm glad for it. I prefer not to live in a state where the sidewalk melts during the summer.

Probable Cause was probably the noise of something inside the trunk.

I'd prefer the cop open it up, especially if that was a human in the trunk, instead of a deer.

Given that they were there to investigate a "suspicious car" - I would imagine somebody heard the noise coming from the trunk and called the police. I have no issues with this, and I suspect it would easily hold up in a court as "probable cause" if it had been something more illegal than a dumbass trying to score some venison after hitting a deer.

Yepper, I think it would easily hold up in court.  I'm not a narc by nature, but if I pass your car and something is banging in the trunk wanting out I call the cops too.  A deer would be pretty much the LAST thing I'd have thought of.

It's not dead. It's probably just stunned.

I'd say it probably went like this:
Officers show up and ask what the man is doing.
Man says he's checking out the damage to the front of his car
Officers ask how he got the damage.
Man says he hit a deer and stuffed its body in his trunk.
Officer asks to check out the deer to make sure it was a deer and not a dude.
Man obliges since he is not in the wrong and probably wants to show off a little.
Deer runs away.

I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it.
The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I am in the back of the truck not 4 feet away), it should not be difficult to rope one, get up to it and toss a bag over its head (to calm it down) then hog tie it and transport it home.
I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope.
The cattle, having seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it
.
After about 20 minutes, my deer showed up -- 3 of them. I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out from the end of the feeder, and threw my rope. The deer just stood there and stared at me.
I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold. The deer still just stood and stared at me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation.
I took a step towards it...it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope and then received an education.
The first thing that I learned is that, while a deer may just stand there looking at you funny while you rope it, they are spurred to action when you start pulling on that rope.
That deer EXPLODED.
The second thing I learned is that pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope and with some dignity.
A deer -- no chance.
That thing ran and bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I had originally imagined.
The only upside is that they do not have as much stamina as many other animals.
A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet and drag me when I managed to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this, since I was mostly blinded by the blood flowing out of the big gash in my head. At that point, I had lost my taste for corn-fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off the end of that rope.
I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere. At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing, and I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual.
Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer's momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground, I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in, so I didn't want the deer to have to suffer a slow death, so I managed to get it lined back up in between my truck and the feeder - a little trap I had set before hand....kind of like a squeeze chute.
I got it to back in there and I started moving up so I could get my rope back.
Did you know that deer bite? They do! I never in a million years would have thought that a deer would bite somebody, so I was very surprised when I reached up there to grab that rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist.
Now, when a deer bites you, it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head --almost like a pit bull. They bite HARD and it hurts.
The proper thing to do when a deer bites you is probably to freeze and draw back slowly. I tried screaming and shaking instead. My method was ineffective. It seems like the deer was biting and shaking for several minutes, but it was likely only several seconds.
I, being smarter than a deer (though you may be questioning that claim by now), tricked it.
While I kept it busy tearing the tendons out of my right arm, I reached up with my left hand and pulled that rope loose. That was when I got my final lesson in deer behavior for the day.
Deer will strike at you with their front feet. They rear right up on their back feet and strike right about head and shoulder level, and their hooves are surprisingly sharp. I learned a long time ago that, when an animal -- like a horse --strikes at you with their hooves and you can't get away easily, the best thing to do is try to make a loud noise and make an aggressive move towards the animal. This will usually cause them to back down a bit so you can escape.
This was not a horse. This was a deer, so obviously, such trickery would not work. In the course of a millisecond, I devised a different strategy. I screamed like a woman and tried to turn and run.
The reason I had always been told NOT to try to turn and run from a horse that paws at you is that there is a good chance that it will hit you in the back of the head. Deer may not be so different from horses after all, besides being twice as strong and 3 times as evil, because the second I turned to run, it hit me right in the back of the head and knocked me down.
Now, when a deer paws at you and knocks you down, it does not immediately leave. I suspect it does not recognize that the danger has passed. What they do instead is paw your back and jump up and down on you while you are laying there crying like a little girl and covering your head.
I finally managed to crawl under the truck and the deer went away.
So now I know why when people go deer hunting they bring a rifle with a scope to sort of even the odds.
