I think we ought to be proud of the wildlife enforcement officials that busted them & confiscated the racks! It's great to see that they're actually getting some of the poachers!

They had a TV set up of people shooting Stuffy the dummy deer. Some people are just crazy, shooting that dummy deer not worried about what could be behind it and a night.

That's cool! I think the Michigan DNR started that program & it picked up all across the country. Michigan started a long time ago with grouse & turkey and then upgraded it to a stuffed deer. On a more personal note, we found 5 carcasses, with their heads cut off, in a drainage ditch on the farm I hunt in Brown County, Ohio about 6 years ago. 2 of them were huge, obviously very mature bucks based on body carcass size. It was one of the most disturbing & depressing sights I'd ever seen. My buddy, the land owner, reported it to the Ohio DNR & gave the County Game Warden permission to trap his farm. The Game Warden busted 3 different people for spotlighting/poaching in the area after that & we've been seeing more monster mature bucks ever since. The Game Warden has continued to trap and keep an eye on the farm. He's been doing real well on Coyotes and has been depleting the population. I used to think it was great to get the occassional chance to shoot a Coyote but I figure it's a win-win any way I look at it. The poachers aren't around anymore, the Coyotes aren't taking as many fawns & the deer herd is flourishing.

mrjbigfoot. I hate to here that about your farm some people have no recept for other people and to just throw the hole deer away is such a wast. Im glad that your deer population is going back up though. We might be seeing some bigger deer around hear some day I hope.

Missouri Department of Conservation starte with a stuffed deer about 17 years ago or so. I clearly remember an incident on a neighbor's farm. Guy shot a stufedd forkhorn skylighted at dark 5 times and was RELOADING when the warden pulled up. What a piece of Samsonite.

the warden in one of the counties i hunt is excellent,his name is steve kinney and he's been awarded conservation officer of the year in indiana more than once.he is good ,he'll foolow u around at night with his headlights off.he has pulled me over before when i was spotlighting[legal in IN as long as no weapons are in vehicle,checked me when i was fishing and when are licences were good he told us the best spots on the creek to fish,what bait to use.he has also snuck up to the hunting shack when he thought every body was in the woods peering in cars and checking tags on deer that were hanging in the tobacco barn[the owner of the land had tagged out and seen him outside and came out to talk to him].he again congratulated us as being the only place on the road he had not wrote a citation on.i'm telling these stories as a tribite to Mr.Kinney who will write you a ticket when your wrong and stay around and talk to you and help you out if your right.i wish all wardens were this professional.thanks again steve and i do appreciate your hard work

Hey MI, I'm a really old fart, I started hunting, with a gun back in 1966 in Ohio, and went on a grouse hunt in Michigan for the 1st time in 1972. The Michigan DNR was using decoys to bust Road hunters back in 72, 33 years ago. I'm really greatfull that all of our state DNR's are getting creative to bust poachers because I really respect the time, effort, money & resources they put into trying to keep it a high quality resource that will be here for my kids, my grandkids & hopefully my great grand kids someday. Michigan is an especially interesting state because of all the dirt/sand road access they have back into some really wilderness areas. Anyone with a car can get to some really remote areas (without 4wd) & I'm sure that it causes their DNR a whole bunch of extra grief. Between the road poachers & the salmon snaggers, they've really got their hands full. Michigan is also a big welfare state so they've got a lot of folks in certain areas that don't have much income and they make up for it by "living off the land". I've got some amount of compassion for that & I don't think the DNR over crucifies the locals that are living off the land to eat, but they definitely go after the a..holes that come in from out of town and drive around road hunting.
