Yes I shot him on Thursday and turned the collar over to Colorado parks and wildlife on Friday. We found 2 collared deer and 1 on a Antelope on this hunt.Did you turn the collar over to the DNR/F&G? I got a car killed moose a few years ago that had a collar, and received info from the DNR about where & when it was collared and at what age. Mortality factors, including hunting are a big part of the information that is an important part of what affects overall herd numbers.
I already dropped it off at the office. I found 2 collared deer in Colorado and 6 in Oregon.I would call it in. When the heartbeat stops the collar will send a GPS location. I’ve never seen a mule deer that was collared before but I know in Nv they do collar them.
In Ca there are a ton of bears that are collared. I’ve seen one small bear this year that had one on.
