"Nevada dead bull found"

I found a dead bull today in unit 075 in Nevada. He looks to have been dead about 2 weeks. The bull had what looked like an arrow hole in him. If this is your bull, or know who's bull it may be, give me the area of 075, what the bull had antler wise, shot placement and proof of tag, and I'll hand over the coordinates. I know how difficult it can be to work butt off hunt elk with a bow, so I would like to see the bull returned to the proper hunter.

I really don't like the idea of people getting these heads back. In my opinion that bull was wasted and should be left on the mountain to rot away. If they make a bad shot and the animal gets away why in the world would they want the antlers back? They certainly wouldn't want to show off the rack of an animal that they couldn't recover on their own. What if they kept hunting and shot another bull and have those antlers. They really shouldn't get the wasted bulls' antlers.

Well their tag was filled. And they should not have another chance at another bull.

+1 agreed . This can go 100 different ways, due to so many opinions. Let's say they did stop hunting, and devoted the rest of their hunt to recovering that animal, and simply couldn't do it.. ! Why should they not get what was left ? Nobody is perfect, ESPECIALLY in the archery world . I've lost only one archery animal ( thank God ) but we found that he was only grazed in the back strap and doing fine. Things happen guys .

What are the rules for putting a tag on an animal after the season is closed. Don't you have to do that through fish and game?

Once season closes the tag is no longer valid. Technically illegal to back tag a dead head but that's probably the best way to do it if you're not going to go thru the dept.

I'm not 100% sure about Nevada's regulation in this situation. I think you're trying to do something nice for someone else, and I can commend you for that.

The best way to locate the hunter would be through your Fish and Game anyway. They know everyone who had a tag for that unit. That would also be the least likely way to 'return' the head to the archer who lost it...

I think the day he/she stopped looking for that bull is the day that it was no longer theirs...

maybe he has another bull already and will never claim the first one, if you want the antlers tell fish and game you want them.

Got yours back? Did you have it and lose it? If you nick one and don't find it, tough $hit. Cut the tag. Too many guys keep hunting after wounding a critter. mtmuley

What if you hit a deer or an elk with your truck. Does that count as your animal for the year?

It's funny how many youtube videos show folks wounding game and not finding it. They continue to hunt until they kill something and dismiss the first attempt by saying "they saw the animal while tracking it and it looked healthy." Often times, the things we put out for the world to see set the example for others to follow--especially the younger generation.

If you wound it, cut your tag and spend your remaining hunt time trying to recover it. Respect the life you tried to take. We are turning this sport into a blood thirsty generation of hunters, focussed on inches and record book kills.

Honor that life that was offered to you by finding it, or making the shot count in the first place. Know your limitations and stay within those boundaries. Accidents happen because we aren't perfect, which is why I say cut your tag and start looking for that animal!

In africa you can keep hunting but one drop of blood counts as a kill every time.

Well MT you've taken an animal out of the herd either way. In fact I wonder if the state should adjust tag numbers based on the number of deer hit by vehicles in the time between spring counts and the start of the hunt. I'll bet there are more deer hit with vehicles on some units than are wounded and lost on that unit each year. Still waiting for a response to that question. Or responce if you're rather go that route.
