    I would say it is mine, and be extremely sorry to my son. It'd be way worse if his buck was taken.

      I agree that lying is wrong but I'd still probably do it IF I were in this situation. However I can't see myself getting in this situation because I am obsessive about reading and completely understanding the DNR's rules and regs. I probably read the things 10-15 times a year just to make sure I understand everything. If any of my hunting buddies want to mix things up and try new stuff I'll go back and read them again looking for any information about what they want to try, like drives, food plots, baiting, etc. There is one piece of property I hunt that one of the guys put a corn feeder on. I quit hunting that property as soon as I found out. I have a cousin that got a ticket when he was coming out of the woods at night on his 4wheeler with the lights on because he put a jacket on over his orange vest. Now, it was completely dark, he was on a Honda Rancher 350 with the lights on. Common sense would lead one to believe that was better than the orange vest. He was much, much more visable than I was walking out behind him with my orange vest on in the dark, no flash light, but he still got a ticket. Is the purpose of the rule to make people wear orange or maximize visibility? Didn't make sense to me but that warden was a strict by the book guy. Could he have let him go with a warning? Yes! Did he? No!

        I would say tell the truth. Tell him you are new to this and explain whhat happened. If the warden is an understanding you could just as easily keep the deer as get it cofiscated. Then go to the courthouse and get acomplete copy of your states hunting and fishing laws. Then never make the mistake again.

          All of the game wardens I know would much rather you tell the truth than lie to them. You might still get a warning or even a ticket but usually they will let you keep the game. An honest mistake is still honest until you throw some BS in there.
