    Poachers should be shot. Some states take poaching very seriously and have more manpower to enforce the laws. They confiscate the firearms, vehicle's involved and being transported (if a boat id being towed- they take both) including contents, in addition to stiff fees. Letting things go with a slap on the wrist will never help. SmokeRoss- I do appreciate you keeping us apprised of the situation as it doesn't make any news.

    In Texas poaching for trophy deer is a huge issue and I find it repugnant. Some poachers (as well as smugglers) actually have hoof-print shaped soles to throw off investigators when the poacher is walking to/from the kill site. Lot's of people are just crappy folks.

    Stay safe out there- a poacher is bound to lob a round your way if discovered, so if you find one approach as you would a rabid animal.
