Brian M, thank you for locking down the thread.
Yes, I am the gentleman that was working for an outfitter that was breaking the laws, and got the help I needed to do the right thing through quality members here. That has led to an investigation into the matter and will most likely end with charges filed by the state for illegal use of subsistance and also charges already filed through the labor board. Atleast another employee wont be screwed out of his hard earned money this next time due to my actions taken.
Secondly, I dont have cabin fever, there is a bit more to the details that are not needed to be said on the internet forum, as I did my first time asking on an ethical forum for advise and help in resolving an issue. I asked for help and recieved it. Officer Sands out of the petersburg office has assisted me in this matter and is working on the situation as I type. If this was cabin fever, then I guess the crabbers that told the same story and also witnessed the boats in question leaving the bay at first light, they too must be looking for attention.
I like this forum, and came here for I knew I would be able to get an ETHICAL member to help me where I could not do anything otherwise at the time. I did not expect the personal attacks that followed, and those that stooped to a childish level only showed their true colors and how un united they really are with a network of ethical hunters.
Due to personal attacks and slander about me I have decided to say my piece and leave it at that. I do know, that actions like this are what ruin a forum, if it wasnt for the good members on here, I wouldnt be back, but I have gained a lot of info and help from this forum. I guess I will just stick to reading here from now on as if you post your going to have someone from the group insult you and make acusations. Perhaps its time to look at the value of that kind of member and what they protray the rest of the community that uses these pages.
Thanks again, no matter what any of these men think, I did the right thing in both instances, and in the end that is all that matters.
As far as my statistic of 85% of wild game crimes going unreported, that is a statistic that was told to me by a state official as I was told that 15 % of the actual crimes committed are actual seen or charged for, there is a lot more that goes on that no person but the law breaking person knows about when they occur.
There is no need to reply by anyone for this matter, just wanted my chance to state my mind. Some of the group needs to grow up. End of story.
If we as outdoorsman cant stand untied on issues like this, we will never win any battles that hurt us as a hunting community.
