I reported a guy I witnessed tampering with my snares.
All this time I heard nothing, then today a county official calls me and said the guy will receive a citation for the tampering.
She wanted to arrange a meeting with the offender and me tomorrow.
I'm scheduled to work, not enough notice for me.
And she informed me I was in violation for no tags on my snares!
I told her everything I have has a name tag on it, I don't think she believed me.
I'm pretty sure it would not be a good idea to turn in game violations, speeders or drunk drivers, here from now on, don't want to deal with someone like that.

Turn em in. At least they gave him a fine that seems pretty rare.

Make em prove you didn't have your equipment tagged in court. Without a warden or pictures they will fold.

Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

FCOL, where is the common sense? Why would you call if you were in violation yourself?
But that's the problem the general public is just a cash cow always in violation of something to most of these bureaucratic ticket quota types.

A friend of mine is a supervisor here at a local Border Patrol sector. One of his agents stole a trap and didn't realize the trapper had a scouting camera on it. I don't know if the guy has gone to court yet but he could lose a $100,000.00 a year job over it. Pretty stiff penalty.

Law enforcement that are thieves/lawbreakers should be held to a higher standard and be given stiffer penalties as well as lose their jobs.

I am sorry you have received this kind of treatment. It is not fair or right, which reminds me of real life.
It is incredibly hard to find justice anymore.

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

A friend of the family lost a $150,000/yr utility job stealing a wheelbarrow from a back yard where they were repairing a transformer. He did not think anyone was home and put it in the truck. Lady was watching the whole time. Dumb!

Bad mistake for sure, I understand people screw up, I just figured since I watched the guy do it and it's against the law I should report him

Ya I put up with that bs when I talked about it last fall.
How do I know the two men were not armed?
The main guy is atleast double my size, what would you expect an older man to do, shoot him and go to prison?
Now that I know what that liberal county attorney is like, I for sure would loose my conceal carry permit over any confrontation

The only way you go to prison or even get talked to is if a body is found. Otherwise itís just a missing person.

Of course the tags were missing
He didnít want to get caught with snares with your tags on them, just tell the libtard that the thief took the tags off.
Makes sense to me.

Once I observed a poacher on my leased property. He walked over a hill and saw two deer. Made a great offhand shot on a young doe. That night I called his dad and asked that his son come to my house to discus what occurred on my lease. The dad, our bank city executive, came instead. I told him his son shot a fawn deer that moments before had been nursing from its mom. The dad said his sonís friend shot the deer and it was a spike. Humm..... The dad had a prior wildlife conviction. I let it go, but the dad and son each knew the truth.

Poachers come in all forms and walks of life. A year later II lost my lease to him. The landowner would not explain why.

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.
