They just found a guys bones near here in the bush the other day.
Some guy was riding his 4 wheeler thru the bush and came upon a 4 wheeler stuck up against a log.
He looked around,and didnt see anything,so he took down the plate numbers and reported it.
It came back registerd to a guy that went missing in 2017 I believe.
The investigators turned up some of the guys bones scattered around by wildlife,they dont yet know what happened to him.


Boco, did you catch him dikking around your sets?

Makes sense to me.

He didn't take the snares, he set one off and stuck a skinned carcass in one
Attorney said he had to cut a friend's dog loose too, none of my snares there were ever cut

That was the idiots excuse for messing with your stuff he’s lying to the lady to look better and get less of a fine. I’d ask the officer to call her and get that straightened out,

County officer said he would have to explain to her again those were legal sets.
The tamperer also said he had to cut a snare to release a hunting dog, I had no snares damaged there, she lectured me on talking over her when she repeated his lies.
She's a liberal for sure, she bragged about her 5 generation farm family, her dad didn't allow hunting or guns on farm

Down here we have a process of law and order. Tuning them up can lead to charges on you even if your right.

We can also carry handguns legally. I always have one at hand. That fact I can handle any situation permanently and thing escalate keeps me humble soft spoken and avoid conflict at all cost unless its life or death and I can't get away.

You see its something you can't seem to grasp. Carrying a gun has nothing to do with being afraid of anything, a tough guy, or any other bs thing you want to dream up and it dose not created more violence.

It reduces violence ( keep me from preforming tune ups several times) and when anyone could be armed it gives people pause before they attack someone else.

Yes, let the law handle it, then when they get ticked off from paying a fine they’ll destroy your entire line. I prefer my way and avoid the law. Most learn their lesson and pass it on. Only takes one good story and no one will set foot around your stuff or on your property again.

So who is this county official? Can they enforce state fish and wildlife laws saying your going to get issued a ticket for not having tags on your snares? Doesn’t this fall under Iowa DNR?

DNR charges go through the Clerk of Courts office like any other charges, Some of them can be real jerks to the public and LEOs but kiss the judges butts to keep their jobs.

Interesting point. I had a fella steal a narrow, nice curved trenching shovel that was leaning up against a tree in my yard, and that fella isnt known for doiing any work. Shovels are work...my favorite shovel too, lol.

"favorite shovel, seems oxymoronic.

I texted the county officer, he said it was a legal set, this lady talked like a power hungry liberal, she was going by what I think the tamperer said

That lady is not in possession of the gift of discernment.
