On part of our hunting land a week or so ago they found the remains of 14 deer thrown out at the entrances to our lease. A few of them had the backstraps cut out and a couple of bucks had the antlers cut off. The rest of the deer was just thrown out beside the road. We have an idea who did it, but it is one of those things that is almost impossible to catch. We put a camera in a concealed place, but the odds of catching them is probably very low.

Sometimes a $50-100 reward offered to an acquaintance of the suspects will get you a pretty good lead. Tell 'em that you promise you'll never mention his name as the source, and keep your promise. It really helps if you have a little dirt on the squealer, too.

Even if they don't go down, sometimes just a happy visit from the local game warden is enough to put a once brazen poacher's tail between his legs. If nothing else, he'll relocate his activities.

Is it possible that the deer were legally taken, just with the remains being littered onto your property? Guys around here have favorite carcass-littering spots, which is a peeve of mine. They put the hide, head and bones in a garbage bag, thinking that the plastic bag will magically disappear. I wouldn't care if they just tossed out the organic stuff.

That makes me so mad. Ignorance is right. Call the Game Warden and let them
know what is going on, and maybe they can increase patrols in your area. At least
let the Poachers know that the Fish and Wildlife guys are out there.

I dont understand guys when they do that. [:@]

Game wardens are working the case, but unless we can get a picture or a solid lead it doesn't look good.
