I've had roadkill deer, too. One of the old-timers (he drove a Higgens boat on D-Day) that lives next to where I hunt cooked it up one day. It was tasty, but there was one shoulder that was, well, over-tenderized. The T-Bird that hit it didn't fare too well either, I hear.
Don't know about the laws in GA, but the officer at the scene told him to go ahead and take it.
Beginner barbarians probably had the idea that every house they broke into would be full of untouched loot and frightened, unarmed victims. It just doesn't work that way, my friend.
I hope these evil men come to understand our peaceful ways soon - My trigger finger is blistering!
