Lol....interesting article.

I took hunter safety class a little later in life than some , in my early 20's. Went with a friend who was about the same age. I came from a non-hunting family so , I did this on my own. Not an anti-hunting family , just non-hunting.

On one side of the classroom there was a bunch of 12ish year olds there with their dads. On the other side there was an assortment of 30-40-50 year olds. My buddy and I kinda figured this out , the older group were probably there because they got spanked and had to take the class over again because of something they did. You could tell this was the case because they showed very little interest and were just sitting there enduring the class.

I agree.I don't believe this is where antler worshippers intended it to go,but it's where it went.When you have people sawing off racks from roadkills things have gotten way out of hand.

Hey Marty... couldn't open the link... it said it couldn't be found.

I personally hate those pen raised racks, that so many think are so wonderful. I think they are about the ugliest things in the wild kingdom. If there isn't a grouping for trophies of those ugly racks, there should be. I guess they should have a contest for the ugliest. Saying they are great, is like saying Hilary Clinton is beautiful.

my favorite was eleven with the extra 5 cents. I don't know why I found it funny but I did. not about the poaching just the 5 cents. people don't hunt for food anymore they only care about antlers. the meat from a deer would feed a low income family that couldn't afford meat for a while. I hate poachers!


Trapping is what built North America, why take that away?

One reason you might see older hunters/folks in a Hunter Ed class is they need the HE Certification to hunt in many or most states out west.

Sad truth. Braggers boasters and blowhards with their tv shows promoting nothing but antlers and looking and acting like they're having a heart attack after the shot. Making a new age of hunters that is fast loosing sight of the true outdoor experience. The worst enemy of most things comes from within. Seeing these people break laws ruins hunting for everyone. Antis see this and spread the word that we're all like that. One bad apple can ruin the batch

Sport hunting has destroyed their future .
It just hasn't happened yet.
Brotherhood amongst them has been shrinking more and more every year.

Thanks Marty ... That article warms my heart when I read something like that. I have worked both Federal and state wildlife departments and the biggest difference is in the court systems as this shows. The Federal Courts don't mess around with them and throw the book at them. When I was working with the Feds the average time of an investigation was 2 to 5 years. Most in the states was counted in months.

I find it amazing that it’s illegal to hunt deer over bait in Indiana but every store that carries anything hunting related is loaded with every kind of bait imaginable.

Just because you can doesn't mean that you should.

The stores around here have cheeky signs above their deer corn usually something to he effect "cattle and pig feed only"

99% of hunting in the US is sport hunting. For the vast majority it is easier and cheaper (if you factor in all costs) to buy food at the store.

i will never understand antler hunting. i have tried and i just dont get it.

antler hunters will pay huge sums for antlers just to get them mounted and lie saying they killed the animal.

they will pay huge sums to kill an animal inside an enclosure that has never been wild.

It is no wonder people are "poaching". Whatever that means.

P.S. people "poaching" big antlers are not harming or helping to control, deer populations. Car/deer accidents will continue unabated. So will large winter kill of otherwise healthy animals.

The only reason for rules on killing big bucks is so fish and game departments can get a lot of money selling tags. The whole program is one giant con game.
