Poachers
« on: December 24, 2018, 09:21:55 AM »
I was hunting one of my favorite stands opening day around 2:30 pm...It the distance I can view my power line and sanctuary.Shortly thereafter I noticed a buck crossing my power line into my hemlocks.I hit the grunt call and then noticed a hunter in orange in pursuit.That's when I saw RED...I climbed out of my stand and cut two hunters off on one of my deer trails.I asked them how many of my signs did the pass to get this far.They claimed they hit a 10 pointer at 11 am ,went to lunch and decided to follow later.There was alot of blood on both sides of his tracks noticeable in the snow.I took pics of their back tags and allowed them to pursue to my farmers lot line (against my better judgement) They were name dropping a neighbor who did have my cell number and they could have reached out to him.They opted not to...With the amount of blood I figured it was a good shot and the buck would be down .Wrong...they called that other neighbor in hopes of cutting the buck off .But to no avail.The following morning I told my farmer I would pick up the blood trail and give him the heads up.I tracked well over a mile through marshy swamp,Hawthorne,wild rose bushes,barb wire fence and cut corn fields.I was expecting to find him dead and finished by the Coyotes.I called my farmer and told him the buck ended up in his 200 acre clip.By then I was shot and the Conservation officer I had called gave me a ride back to my camp.My farmer and his daughter and grandson followed up and His daughter finished off a huge 8 pointer.The sad part of it all the slob hunter actually shot the buck while running through both front hooves.I didn't have them arrested but, in hindsight I should have. I listened to the one neighbor who lobbied for them and found out from two others landowners that they have caught this camp before.Live and learn and all  bets are off...Deer or no deer.I'll try to post deer pics....

A shame.

I had a poacher years back. Called DNR and had him arrested. I give no slack to poachers.

I hope those bums never come on your land again

I vote for this as well - at a minimum those clowns need to learn to respect the others around them even if their intentions were golden (which I doubt they were).  Tromping across others' properties during the season is a really rude thing to do at best, but unsafe and illegal in most cases unless they've previously established a "blood trail" policy with the neighboring landowners.  They need to be slapped.  Really glad she was able to put that fine buck down!
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

My one neighbor who happens to work for that same Sheriffs Dept Lobbied for those two trespassers.I did in fact report them but with a stern warning ( I hope) But,against my better judgement.I spend alot of time and money posting my 160 acres perimeter . The fines would have been $250.00 each.In the future call or no call I will prosecute anyone trespassing due to the actions of a few.Funny how the kid who lobbied for them didn't want to get involved after the fact. All I wanted him to do is spread the word.Trust me....a fine spreads the word like wild fire.

Undestood but a $250 fine may not make a lasting impression.

Loss of hunting license for a long time or forever is more my speed, that is why I would never cut poachers any slack.

I hope the fine works.

If those dirt bags come back plase get them busted by the DNR!

I'd call the Game Warden.  Even though $250 isn't much of a deterrent it's money they have to pay and starts building a record for them.  No slack.
There is nothing more beautiful than sitting in a treestand watching the world come alive.
A bad day of hunting is better than any day at work.
