Wyoming poacher fined

Boy, that's a beauty of a bull.  Too bad the guy only had a cow tag. ::whistling:   Hopefully the $35,000 he got fined will make him think twice next time.

To bad this loser lives and

To bad this loser lives and is from Oregon, Man my home state is getting slammed with bad pub with all the poachers lately. Glad they caught him and are making an example out of him. I just wish the other poaching case from oreon had the same peneties.

Wow that is truly an awesome

Wow that is truly an awesome bull...ranks right up there with a bull of lifetime.  I am sure there are alot of guys out there that will never even see a bull that big and this jerk has to go and take him away from a trust sportsman.  I am sure glad that bewtween Oregon and Wyoming that they caught him.  Glad they are gonna throw a pretty good book at him.  need to really start making an examples out the guys that think that poaching is OK.

Hey guys, I didn't notice

Hey guys, I didn't notice this was already posted by the moderators until after I posted it.  I told them to go ahead and delete it if they want.  So, if you guys lose some points for your replies, it's my fault..... Whistling

I agree with what everyone

I agree with what everyone has had to say here. This guy and everyone like him needs to learn that poaching will be penalized severely if it's ever ging to be stopped. this guy doesn't sound like a dedicated poacher but just wasn't worried about the penalties for killing an animal he didn't have a tag for. If he had seen other examples maybe he wouldn't have done it. It wouldn't have made him a better person but at least the bull would have lived for a real hunter.
