That's good they were caught

That's good they were caught and convicted. What's the punishment for when they get caught poaching in the future? A lot of the poachers i've read about don't stop once their hunting privileges have been revoked. Just wondering if anyone knows the punishment if they're caught again?

The simple loss of those privelages does nothing, cause let's face it, the didn't really follow the law in the first place.

The sad thing is that even when poachers get caught, many times judges let them off the hook. Many judges don't see crimes against wildlife as serious offenses... that needs to change.
