The state of Montana has made it legal for residents to pick up road kill, take it home, and throw it on the grill.

Should you be driving along a Montana highway and come across a deer or elk, simply throw it on your car roof and give local law enforcement a call. They will grant you a retroactive tag for the kill, and you're off to supper.
