Your non-imaginary cohort can help with antlers and such. 

I believe you would have to tag it, but then report to your local ECO that it cannot be consumed and get a replacement or something like that.  Just call them and ask - their numbers are all in the back of the regs guide.

Thats great loonyone. Make sure to post some pics. Are you planning to do a Euro mount or a skull cap on a nice plaque? Not sure what the law is as far as tagging and such in NY.

Put your tag on it and get a picture of it you and your gun..  Our team needs the points..... ;D ;D ;D

But first call the closest office and ask them what to do....  You can get a Meat Unfit For Consumption permit to continue hunting....   DEC numbers are on page 8 in the book..

As far as cleaning the skull... ::) ::)

Congrats on being able to at least have the horns & skull Lonnyone, too bad about the meat part of it though. I would have a Euro mount done of it !!!

Glad they found it for you. To bad about the meat, but let us know how the unfit for consumption thing goes.

I would personally fill the tag since you killed a buck. I beleive "unfit for consumption" is meant for diseased deer etc, not ones that weren't recovered. I'm sure you could get one though.
