This is a freaking shame! I must say though my friend, you sure did a heck of a job to ensure that these CRIMINALS got what they deserved. I’m not sure how I would have reacted but with my temper I more than likely would have gotten myself into a bit more trouble than I needed. Again, GREAT JOB on ensuring, or attempting to ensure, that these guys were brought to justice.
The previous post was mine.
Hey I have to spoken to this brave young man a couple times about this crime. If you look closely at the front leg the deer is laying on you will see baseball size hole from the bullet wound. The shooter claimed the hole was caused by his arrow– Fat chance!!
What part of the country did this take place?
i think thats preatty stupid to shoot a deer out of season if you can’t shoot a deer right dont shoot any at all
what part of idaho
Southern Idaho– tributary to the snake river
like by the owyhee mountains
glad these idiots were caught shame it happened in my home state
That enough to piss you off. but i am glad they were prosicuted.
Nice guts dude
that buck was poached in the south fork of the boise river drainage
The man "guiding" the shooter was recently acquitted on the charges of aiding and abetting. He said he was out varmit hunting and the shooter shot the deer over his protests. Photos of the incident show him standing behind the shooter as he was shooting, with a rifle over his shoulder and watching the shots with his binoculars. There was also a photo of the "guide" helping the shooter load the buck onto their 4 wheelers (which was closed to 4 wheelers any ways). Interesting case. Hopefully they won’t do it again out of respect for the rest of us.
You should Post the name of the Guide who was aquited, Im sure people would like to know if there guide was involved in anyway with the taking of any game illegally. regardless if he was aquitted or not, people have the right to know
While on the subject, a few years back I was hunting the Boulder area of the Southern Utah Unit. On the last few moments of light as I was making a fire, all heck broke loose a short distance from my camp. About 20-30 shots rang out in just a few seconds, then quite. Next morning I found the site littered with 14 doe carcasses and 1 spike. Worst deer hunt in my life.
It’s a dirty shame there’s not any good back woods lawyers left these days….
its a shame he will never get to his true potential. man i hate poachers
hey thats a beautiful muley. If u have another problem with poachers give me a holler and ill come up there and take care of them.
I HAVE A COLLEGE BUDDY WHO LIVES I SOUTHERN KANSAS. HE OWNS AROUND 15,000 ACRES OF PRIME WHITETAIL AND MULEY COUNTRY. HE WAS HUNTING A BIG MULEY WHEN POACHERS BUSTED THE BUCK FROM A COUNTY ROAD. HE GOT THEIR TAG# AND CALLED THE GAME WARDEN. THE POACHERS WERE CONFRONTED AND NATURALLY THEY DENIED THE INCIDENT. ONE OF THE GUYS FINALY CRACKED AND SPILLED HIS GUTS. THEY BURIED THE RACK OUT IN THE COUNTRY ON ONE OF THE GUYS GRANDADS LAND. MY BUDDY GOT THE BUCK BACK AND IT NOW HANGS ON HIS WALL IT IS A NON-TYPICAL WORLD RECORD. I’M NOT FOR SURE WHAT IT SCORED BUT I KNOW I COULDN’T EVEN COME CLOSE TO WRAPPING MY HANDS AROUND THE BASE OF THE HORNS AND I’M A BIG FELLOW. TO SHORTIN UP THIS STORY A BIT THE POACHERS GOT EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE KITCHEN SINK AT THEM(THEY WERE FROM OKLAHOMA WITCH MADE EVEN WORSE POACHING OUT OF STATE)!
Since this incident occurred I am more diligent as a hunter watching for suspicious hunters. I try to find out as much as I can from other hunters about their tags, their residency, and their motives. Unfortuntely, I doubt 10% of poachers are ever caught. If we all paid more attention– kind of a "sportsman watch"– we might be able to preserve some of these good genes in the herds so our kids and grandkids can enjoy the same experiences. Otherwise, if we don’t, a few will spoil it for all.
Nice heads up move; i believe I would have went into the situation and probably would have be left with the same fate as the buck. I believe this is the buck whos reward photo was at Sportmas wharehouse am I correct? Again thanks for the great show of ethics from your part.
Yes, the reward photo was posted at Sportsman warehouse. The Poacher had to repay the Citizen Against Poaching and other organizations (Idaho Bowhunters maybe was another org.) for the reward money they paid out. Good move by our courts to make the poachers pay that type of restitution. All in all the poacher paid close to $2500 in fines and restitution.
I don’t like people asking me were I am from. They just try to pen anything on you to get a reward.
thats a darn shame im glad they were prosicutied i live around that area.
Thats a nice buck.
$2500 fine is nothing! If the fines were steeper then these a holes would be deterred a little more!
That’s another reason I go where 4 wheelers can’t.
