Good for him. The fines don't seem very high though with all of those charges.

Funny how they can make up ten different charges for a guy jack-lighting a deer out of season! What good's a hunting license if the season's closed!

Serves him right though, one should always follow the law.

I wish Pennsylvania would adopt Ohio's regs when it comes to breaking the law, including trespassing regs.

We have them... PGC won't enforce them unless a hunting violation occurred as well.
Police..... Just won't enforce them.

The fine schedule is fairly light for wildlife unfortunately. I think minimum restitution for free is 500 and price skyrockets if it gets near or above 140 b&c points

Bet you all that are high fine fans would be on here complaining if they socked you with a $500.00 fine for a faulty headlight.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Well with those charges that dear boy is not entering Canada anytime soon, and a lot of EU country's.
A firearms violation puts you on the No Fly List.

Why can't our immigration laws be enforced with the same enthusiasm?

What good will taking his hunting privileges away for three years do? He's already proven that he'll hunt whether he's supposed to or not. Lock him up for three years instead.

My first thought is that you are even more cynical than me and my second thought is that you are sure as heck not wrong.

I don't know how it is now, but back when I was a CO, an officer could only seize and implement or vehicle. Then at the hearing or trial, you presented the court with a request to either have the seizures returned or confiscated by the court. If it was to return implement, etc., then it was handled at that time. If it was for confiscation, that was another matter and handled at a later hearing. So I imagine, the paper wouldn't take the time to bother printing it. But, my opinion is since he got jail time and there was only a temporary suspension of 3 years of licenses, there was no confiscation.

Every judge had their own interpretation of the regulations, as well as how he wanted things enforced in his court. The first thing when I went into the county I was in, was called into have a meeting with the judge. One of his rules was about posting bond for minor things, like fishing without a license. If the person that was cited for no license lived in the county or and adjacent county and there were no extenuating circumstances, then they would be permitted to not post a bond, and be permitted to appear in court or post a bond prior to court and forfeit that bond in lieu of going to court. If the person lived outside of the county or adjacent counties, they were to be taken forthwith and post a bond or sit in lockup until it was posted or until court was in cession and make their appearance. All bonds were cash... no credit cards.

Being cynical is easy but if this guy was busting deer in your hunting grounds I bet you would not be so sympathetic then. LOL FYI I have seen people trying to substance hunt illegally that were given community service instead of cash fines, going “after” the poor would not be a great plan in most cases.

I would guess from the charges it was not this guys first rodeo in the poaching game and his layer sucked but most likely he pled guilty to all charges rather then plea bargain them down. Stop making excuses for stupid
