Hope these guys get the max fines and time off from being able to hunt legally. (I added legally because they are oblivious to the laws as written now.) Dumbasses......

Confiscate thir guns, gear and vehicle and then charge them with a felony and don't let it plead down to a misdimeanor. Also never let them qualify to buy a hunting license again in any state since it's a federal offense.

Who needs that many ducks anyway? And Canada Geese are protected. At least around these parts. Idiots don't think they will be caught.

Rabbit sheriffs caught a deer poacher here last year. They had 67 capes in their possession that they were selling. No telling how many they had already sold.

RGB Sierra, Not sure where you are talking about...maybe downtown Reno, but Canadians are fair game in Californica and Nevada for waterfowl hunting, the last time I checked.

Guess I should check around a bit more. We have tons of Canada Geese around here, literally, and every time I think about thinning the flock a bit for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, someone tells me they are protected.

They're not hunters, they're poachers, Big difference, although animal rightists don't understand the difference.

 +1 on that............

Duck season started down here on last weekend; had a bunch of guys poaching redheads on on Saginaw bay and then just leave them.:sad:  Every year I find a bunch of dead ducks that was apparently over kill and stomped in to the mud on the managed area I hunt......I tell the DNR, and they claim they know, but I don't see any measures to correct it.
  I sometimes long for the days when we only had a 30 day season and were allowed only 3 ducks........we didnt seem to have this mentality back then.  I don't know when hunting became all about the antlers, or killing more than the other guy, but that's were it's gone, and it kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth.  Going to the UP this weekend for a week of hunting; really not as "hyped" about it as I used to be in the past.:sad:

Skybusting is a big problem as well........the big thing now is "long range shooting" (notice I didn't say "long range hunting, as hunting kind of requires that you get close to your quarry:rolleyes:).   Lots of cripples being produced, sad to say...........

Have you seen any hunting shows lately? They appeal to the video game crowd. In the old days of my youth hunting was about family, fellowship, and food. Now it's a video game mentality. Who can do it the biggest, fastest, and highest score. I still hunt for the family and fellowship but I don't care if I kill anything. I no longer need to augment my food supplies with game meat.

  Yes, Ed, I have.....and I don't care for them.  Nor do I care for most of the stuff that's put up on Youtube, esp. the ones with heavy metal music playing in the back ground. 

Now, I like heavy metal as much as the next guy, but it's kind like ice cream and beer.....the two are great separately, but together....it sucks!!! (don't believe me, try a pabst and chocolate ice cream float!:cool:)
  For me, it was about seeing my Uncles, grandpa, and cousins that I hadn't seen in a while (they lived in the country; I lived in the city), and it was also about passing from childhood to adulthood (we started hunting at 14, the earliest legal age we could hunt deer), and being trusted with the responsibility of carrying a loaded weapon and "playing by the rules".
  Used to be I couldn't sleep the night before opening day......now I look up and it's the end of season.  Can't get out as much as I like, as being "on call" for the hospital keeps increasing, and what little time I do get off work is taken up with chores.
  Trying to keep the spark alive by hunting with other means (slingshot, muzzleloader) or hunting different species (started squirrel hunting again after a 30 year absence), but it just doesn't seem to be happening.

  As for the biggest, baddest, etc.,.....I took my African photos in to work, and a coworker showed them to one of the surgeons.  He has been hunting in Africa several times before, and....being a surgeon.....of course HIS animals were bigger, and S.A. is just a bunch of "ranch hunting", if I wanted to experience "real" hunting I should use his P.H., blah, blah, blah.....
  Of course, this is the same individual who brags about all the ducks he kills.....over corn (in Canada hunting wth the natives).:rolleyes:

Whatever..........:rolleyes:  I guess I'll just keep my photos and my memories to myself from now on.

I love an ice cold Budweiser and a piece of chocolate chess cake. Beer and chocolate are very good together. Maybe try washing the ice cream down with beer, not carbonating your shake with it!:troll:
