WI elk
« on: January 29, 2020, 09:33:42 AM »
a few years back WI relocated some elk to central WI. it was well publicized. i just found out a 41 yr old WI hunter shot 2 bulls during gun season thinking they were deer. even worse, one was a spike and the other was a fork. she claims she thought they were the same animal so she kept shooting. many many many red flags as to why she is eligible to carry a gun IMO

here's the worse part. she only got a $6000 fine and NO loss of license. i can guarantee it cost the tax payers more than 6K just to move these elk. this isn't the kind of person i want in the same woods as me!

 I agree, she should not be allowed to hunt if she can not tell the difference. 0-0-0-

This is unbelievable.... can't tell the difference between a 600-900 lb elk and a 100-200 lb whitetail deer. She shouldn't even be allowed in the woods let alone be given a hunting license.  -00-9

Judge must have figured she was a cash cow if he let her keep her license.   --099-780
Not funny, actually pretty sad.

Hopefully that meat went to a worthy organization.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
