Louisiana Hunter Cited for Illegal Deer Hunting

I don't condone poaching by any means but this is the second case I've heard about in the last two weeks where guys have poached button bucks. Talk to the Hand Brick Wall,) How can people be that desperate for meat? I know some neighbors that are real poor and I'll turn a blind eye from time to time because they really need the meat but that's so messed up!!!! Shooting a button buck with a bow is one thing but with a rifle.....that kid should never be allowed to hunt again in my opinion. Brick Wall,)

I agree. There is no sense in that. Unfortunitely there are many hunters that are not taught to be ethical hunters. I am sure this goes on a lot more than we think.

Just recently I made a hunt to Kansas and since I'm suffering from chills/fever right now....my thinking may be somewhat 'muddled' but if not.....I'm thinking that it makes no difference whether one is a Resident/Non-Resident of Kansas.....one buck per season is all that's allowed! I'm certain someone will 'jerk my chain' on this if I'm in error! As far as Louisiana is concerned....I've lived here for 66 years and been a deer hunter for 56 of those years and I never cease to be amazed at the absence of pure intellect (possibly this runs hand in hand with the gov't. in Baton Rouge) on the part of many of our deer hunters! Many gripe that "we don't have any big-racked bucks" but these same hunters 'cull no hair/horns' when a chance to break the trigger comes along! Furthermore, due to the total ignorance of our DNR aka La. Department of Wildlife & Fisheries this problem is even more compounded by the fact that this year for instance, residents are allowed 3 bucks and 3 doe deer legally! There is no requirement for so many points to be a legal buck akin to what Missouri has which is at least 4 points on one side! The way I see things is that the majority of the problem, concerning not having any decent racked bucks, is the fact that there are many 'shooters' who won't stop at the legal limit but will go on to take as many as a dozen or more deer using a 'justification modus operandi' of "If I don't shoot 'em....somebody else will!" As for taking doe deer.....I'm for that 100% on the condition that this is allowed in areas that need this management tool but there are many units/areas (parishes) where this does not need to be done! Most of the timber ranging from Monroe, La. eastward to Tallulah, La. and from the Arkansas border back north down to Natchez, Miss. has been 'raped' by the bulldozers and there is an ever decreasing amount of habitat for game to reside in. In conclusion....I find many faults concerning the deer management program as administered by the DW&F in Louisiana and in conjunction with this problem is that many hunters have no ethics at all when it comes to taking deer!

That is just uncalled for. If you are going to hunt, do it legally and ethically. It amazes me how people can shoot button bucks. I have seen many pulled out of the state land in TN this season, yet they complain about the lack of trophy racked deer. I would rather go without a buck instead of shooting a fork or smaller (my $.02) Think
