So what if... hopping over the state line
We've previously hunted in a county bordering another state, and it begs the question: If you shoot an animal legally and the fatally wounded animal 'hops' over the state line (assuming you know where that is in the woods), do you follow, do you go get a license for the other state, or let it go? What if you don't know where the line is precisely and follow it?
As the OP noted, this could become a real can of worms without having done anything wrong.
