Another Poacher Nailed on Facebook
According to the Star Tribune a 20 year-old has been caught after he posted his ill-gotten game on Facebook.
The hunter posted a photo on Facebook of a small buck he killed in September during the archery season, then posted a photo of an 8-point trophy buck he arrowed in October. In Minnesota, hunters can kill only one buck per season. He later posted a photo of him and two buddies posing with 12 Canada geese they shot.
"In the caption, he wrote it was a 'three-man limit of geese,' " Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Travis Muyres said. But the daily bag limit is three geese apiece, meaning they were three over their limit.
Catching poachers with their own photos on Facebook seems to be a trend, back in September a Florida couple was cited for poaching a deer that they had posted on Facebook as well.
