Idaho Poacher Gets Caught

Clever judge to make him spend deer season in jail for the next four years...not that the season met anything to him.

Idaho Poacher Gets Caught

This is strange.

What I don't get is people that usually poach, or at least those that get caught waste the animal. I know they caught some guy around here that shot a buck just to shoot it and left it all, including rack. This guy has dollars as he owned a bed and breakfast so I have little sympathy. If it were a poor man feeding his family (but don't shoot a trophy buck) I might be able to make a little sense of it.

I still feel he got off rather easily considering the crime. Seems kinda weird the game warden just happened to "find the guy on the net". They must have had a lead and were keying in on this B&B fella.

Challis is a beautiful place, full of deer and elk. When I was a young un, I had family in Challis and remember seeing deer everywhere, including in my uncle's backyard...

It was brought to our attention that this poacher is selling hunts on Ebay. You can look it up by searching for item number 250096662059. The auction ends 3/30/07.

Its our understanding that the conditions of his probation forbid him from hunting or participating in any way.

... still an ebay item as of 4/13. As I read through the stuff - I can't see where he is violating probation - AS LONG AS HE STAYS ON HIS RANCH (OR IS IN HIS CELL) and doesn't guide people.

THE WHOLE THING REALLY SUCKS!!!

What a moron, doesn't fill his tag during the season, poaches one a couple of days after the season ends and "fills his tag." He could have at least packed out the meat. Nobody probably would have cared if he had done that. Heck, a lot of Idahoans wouldn't even have a problem with it if he hadn't wasted the meat. I would, but I tear my unfilled tags up very ceremoniously the day after season closes and have a good cry.

If you go to the guy's website - and see what is hanging on his wall - you will wonder one of two things:

1) ... wasn't the first time
2) ... if all the stuff on his wall is legit - why bother popping something illegal?

I assume IFG will keep this guy on their radar screen for a while.

Unfilled tags suck! ... but they don't suck as bad as ILLEGAL / UNETHICAL activity.
