There is an area in the 'Glades I go to and it's quite common to see gators without heads (mounts) and tails (meat).

Default A man called Duck...........

Years ago this person could not stop at killing ducks no matter what. The lone game warden swore that one day he would catch him in the act. The warden made this a war against this one Poacher. Well he caught the Poacher in the act of killing ducks. They found his body with his chest cut open and a duck stuffed in side. They never could prove that Duck killed the Game Warden. True story????? Depends on who you ask in this part of La......

All I gotta say is that poaching is a crime, it is the same as robbery. Poachers rob me and I don't like it.
Yes I agree that confiscation of everything involved in the commission of the crime should be confiscated as well as imposition of heavy fines. It should be just that way for all crimes committed.
Just watch the evening news here in the Atlanta, Ga. area its all about crime.
I would rather give someone something just don't steal from me.
All criminals---especially poachers--who rob me of my most enjoyable sport should be procuted to the full extent of the law.

I mean they fine you take your hunting fishing trapping away and now your truck!do you think that they should have that much POWER? I think the DNR should have less power and authority on what they can do.

The laws are in place for a very good reason for sure and I can agree with that. But with that said; if I lived out in the country and wanted a turkey dinner or the meat supply was getting low, I would shoot one from my own property if there was enough available to repopulate what I took.

There is Poaching and there is being a man and feeding your family any way you can.

I have no problem with a man taking a deer or two out of season to feed his family IF THAT is what he has to do.

If I know you are hungry and your family will go hungry if you don't bring home some meat. I am like shultz "I SEE NOTHING"...

I guess you guys have given me a new outlook. If the poacher has no job, no hopes of getting one (Obamazation) and his family is hungry, then taking game to eat and feed them, although illegal, would not be frowned upon. I too would have to look the other way, because in a real SHTF scenario, we all will do the same.

Doesn't it come down to compassion and common sense?
