Default Poacher

Last season I was in my stand whenever a poacher drove up to check out my feeder. I have a video of him butI cannot make out his license plate. I was wondering if anyone knew how I could clearup the video and hopefully be able tomake out his license plate.Thanks.

On the cleaning up the video, probably not gonna happen. Keep your eyes open and your guns loaded.

You should be able to take a still image off of the video footage with a video editing program and then edit the photo with photoshop or an alike program. For video editing, I have used Sony Vegas in the past.

If nothing else, show it to your local game warden. If the guy is a career poacher, the GW will certainly recognize the truck and will at least know who to look for if somethng does happen.

If he has any sort of pattern I would just wait nearby with my shotgun for him to show up!

How do you know he was a poacher? I stop and watch deer all the time, but that doesn't make me a poacher!

The week before I saw this guya neighbor found a deer with just the antlers cut off about 400 yards from where my feeder is. This guy drove 300 yards off of the county road to where he had a clear view of my feeder at about 100 yards. Then whenever he looked in the tripod and saw me he hauled ass back through the field. I am positive he wasn't just stopping and trespassing on my property tojust watch deer. There is a major problem with poaching in the Texas Panhandle.

definitely coordinate with your DNR folks.....and be careful, its not unheard of for a poacher to be HUI, hunting under the influence.....and that makes it 10X as dangerous. good luck...i hope you can solve your problem.
