More Ohio POACHERS, arrested.

Postby OHhunter » Mon Jun 30, 2008 4:00 pm

Check out this link, to an article on the most recent poaching ring, I hope some of my calls to the "turn in a poacher" hotline lead to their arrest.  I'm not for sure if it's the same individuals but its darn close to all my hunting grounds.  During the November I was calling a couple times a week for people spottlighting on or near the property I hunt.

Check it out one of them claims he's addicted to shooting big deer.  I have yet to see any photos, I know there out there the division of wildlife held a photo opp. of all siezed property and animals.  I'm curious to see if any resemble any of the bucks from my scouting camera photos.

Poaching is disgusting, how could they even be proud of taking a deer that way. They need thier hunting rights denied for life.

Poachers make me sick, we have some that hunt the land that borders ours and they just drive around in a truck all day and shoot deer and just cut the antlers off and leave them lay. Its so stupid[:'(]

KYdeer, That's the worse kind, a poacher who dosen't eat what they kill. Some big time deer hunters right there.[8|]

Ohio has lead the fight against poaching for a couple of years now. Very effective program too.

unfortenately these deer were killed before ohio's new trophy buck law was in place and the poachers fines will be based on the old law.  That's too bad because under the new law their fines would have been near 30,000 dollars.  Heres another article I found it tells the scores and shows a small picture of a few racks.
