Why my hunt was "postponed"....

This is where I was supposed to be pig hunting 2 weeks ago.  Maybe they will start up again this summer.

No offense

No offense, my friend, but I would NEVER hunt anywhere that they'd had poaching problems at. I love a good hunt, with lots of animals in a pretty setting; but I'd rather stay home and pick my nose rather than paying a place that allowed poaching on their property.  Huh?

Tejon Ranch

We reported about this ranch back in May of 2011.

I understand that TN, and I

I understand that TN, and I am not condoning it.  But, it's a 270,000 acre unfenced ranch, with dozens and dozens of guides, and thousands of hunters.  Who knows how far up the chain it was known about, and who was doing the killing.  This guy was in on at least 7 of the 20+ kills, so who's to say it wasn't just him and 2-3 other guides?

I know I am being a little naive, but thousands of hunters from CA and beyond have cut their teeth at that ranch, kids hunts, charity hunts, etc.  I am not going to let this incident spoil all the other good stuff that happens there.

Do i condone what they did?  Absolutely not.  I think they need a lion season here in CA, but until they do, you have to abide by the laws.

They probably will not be a primary hunting program for too much longer.  They stand to make way more money on the housing, hotel, and golf course development - far more than what was previously accomplished.  Too bad as the kid involved hunts were probably the best positive actions from them.
