    I'd like prevailing high temps to be below 0°f before I'd consider it.

    I am not ashamed to take home and butcher up a fresh, not too road rashed deer carcass. In Michigan, any LEO can give you a roadkill permit. All you have to do is ask.

    I’ve eaten and will eat roadkill.

    My uncle hit a deer a couple of years ago. While it did a number on his Jeep, everything on the deer was salvageable except for one front quarter. It would have been a shame to let it rot on the side of the road.

    That year at deer camp, I cut up a back strap, seasoned it, then we used marshmallow sticks to roast venison medallions to our own preferred doneness. That was some delicious roadkill.

    I hit a deer on the way to deer camp. Threw the carcass in my buddy's truck,  who was following me and dressed it out. My truck was disabled.

    TN has a road kill law. Just have to call the Sheriff's Office/PD and get them to come out and assess the damage to vehicle, and they give you the permit for the animal. I've killed a couple of deer on the road, and just pitched them in the back of the truck and got the deputy to come out and write me the permit. As long as it's a fresh kill, a.k.a. not blown up like a helium balloon, then I don't see a problem with it. Key words are 'fresh killed'. :)

    Then there are the times when the road kill ain't dead yet! I think Zee has a horror story about that. Me? I have had to cap one once to do the humane thing and end the suffering.

    I’ve sliced many a throat.
