Poaching Update

Well, I think it's a disgrace. First off, there should be a distinction between those cases where it might have been an honest mistake or accident and those cases where it is clearly deliberate poaching. In the latter case the offender should lose hunting privileges for LIFE!--yes, even on the first offense--and should spend time in jail--I would say at least 90 days, and I mean ACTUAL jail time, not a suspended sentence or community service in lieu. Second offenders should spend several YEARS in jail! After that I'd dump them in the tank and throw away the key.

Poaching Update

I appreciate and MIRROR your thoughts on this, Donmillion.

One question that was NEVER answered is "What was Gustafson doing on this remote stretch of County road, as he was preparing to go off duty?"

Seriously...think about it...

There were NO emergency calls directing him to the area.. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of miles of rural county roads within his "jurisdiction".

It doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to know he had tracked this buck's movement. (Snowy ground) ON A HAY FIELD, no less...with his spotlight????

NAW....it was just the Luck of the Draw and a lapse of judgement?

Please forgive me...this kind of garbage/propoganda just doesn't wash with me. The truth deserves to speak for itself.

LOL...my truck is pretty recognizable...and I drive through Bonner County at least once a week. Better buy a new rig!
