    I noticed that in a lot of poaching cases lately the head and testicles have been cut off and the rest of the buck left to rot. I was wondering if anybody knew the reasoning behind this. I have heard of the testicles sometimes being used as a lucky charm to hang in a tree where you shot the buck but if its a poaching case, what's the point?

      They cut off the head so I imagine they kept them. Besides I understand the reasoning for taking the head, it's the taking of the testicles that I don't understand.

        You seek the testicles into your buddies hunting coat pocket. It's really good when he finds them a week later.

          The scrotum makes a nice cover for your gear shift knob after it dries.

                probably see a nice deer and are just trophy unters so they take the head for bragging rights and who knows about the rest

                    If it is a good size buck they probably want the head to sell or mount. They want the testicals either to fry them up or as you said a lucky charm.

                        I have arrested alot of people for killing deer out of season, and we did a sting operation where an oriental person was buying deer antlers while they are in the velvet. They grind them up and they think it improves their sex life. I have never arrested anyone who had cut a deer's testicles off. Maybe there is a market for them too. People do not realize the money made from killing and selling illegal game. It would shock you. I retired 3 years ago after over 35 years of service. One of the latest things here in WV is the illegal taking of a type of turtle we have and selling all over the east coast as pets.

                          I was going to say what Sarge01 said. There are lots of uses for deer parts in oriental medicine.

                            They use the testicles for mockery of someone they know and use the head for mounting it!
