    i wouldn't do anything for a couple of weeks if more carcasses show up set up a couple of video cameras and call the police or you could have fun with them and possibly make money off of them by cleaning their mess up.

    Poachers....taking head and front shoulders for a mount, backstraps are taken and the rest of the deer is left to rot. No need to gut it I guess if it was just a slimeball poacher.

    It must have been a nice sized buck.

    I'd invest in some game cameras and see who is using the area.

    Then maybe it was someone who simply dumped their mess after taking the good parts out of the deer.

    Might be a neighbor or someone else living nearby.

    Take your shot & Drive/walk away & Come back to get the kill & Load it and go & Dump the carcass good ways from where you originally shot it... all = poacher
