    What caliber is your jeep? Just turn the radio and lights off cause you can't use electronics to take game in california.

    Never saw the reply, but I couldn't agree more. I would fill both tags with awesome bucks no prob. Living in Foresthill I see some awesome deer fresh and go to waste. It's a shame that's not our state.

    Re: S.o.b

    A poacher could have a front end damaged car and just shoot many deer and say he hit it first and then dispatched it? There are alot of scenarios that could come out....?? I think the rule is fine to leave rod kill alone...but I also think if you hit it with a vehicle and there is edible meat and you are willing to clean the carcass and prepare it then thats just fine as well. This is another one of those letter vs. spirit of law deals.

    Re: S.o.b

    Only "approved methods of take" are allowed. Hitting it with a vehicle and killing it then tagging it is not. But...hitting it with a vehicle then dragging into the woods and shooting it thus killing it and then tagging it should be legal since you are using a legal method of "take". All you would need to know is that it was alive when you killed it......but as someone said earlier....I do not think there is anything in the law that specifically says it needs to be alive when you use an approved method to take it? But we all know "take" is to kill...

    Re: S.o.b

    Not to go against what the law says, but I while at the dfg nimbus office last year during deer season, a guy showed up with a deer from his farm in colusa and after he explained to the captain that he hit it he then sold him a tag and validated it and allowed him to keep it? Anyone know why that is? I overheard it first hand but this special circumstances?

    Hahaha! Thats funny! It would be cheaper to buy the best equipment out there whether bow or rifle then to keep paying for your car to get fixed..... Ah. unless you had a steel bumper with a brush guard!

    I would think technically the deer attacked your jeep, so you could shoot it in self defense just in case it woke back up and resumed its assault. Happening to have a tag at the ready is just a happy coincidence
