Well part me me would want to whip there a$$ but the family man in me says that there could be an explination so stay calm...
Are you hunting near a fence line. Could another hunter have shot a deer that jumped the fence and all he did was retreve it?
Did this other person obtain permission to hunt the property without your knowing it?
If he was a poacher, my guess is that you won't see him any time soon. But then again, you never know.
Just remember that as frustraiting as it is, it's not worth going to jail over or even a worse case dead! You never know how dangerous a criminal can be until you back them into a corner. And anything can happen in the woods!!! Be careful with your actions. That's all I'm saying.
I'd repost this in the general discusion threads, I think you'd get a lot more responses than just mine.
