SS, do they have a TIP(turn in poachers) line down there? Id sure let the authorities know about that moron,and the meth heads. Im sure your luck will change,and you'll score some limbhangers for us.
Yeah I have it on speed dial, no joke, Poacher Hotline 1-800-272-4263. I also have both of the local wardens' numbers in my phone. But the wardens here aren't the most dependable guys around so I usually just try and handle things myself. As far as the meth heads, they used to be really bad 5 or 6 years ago, but the wardens told me they couldn't do anything about it if they weren't poaching on my land......which I know is a lie, wardens have as much power as a state trooper, or more and have the authority to arrest a trespasser. They told me to call the county, but before I did, "The Poacher"
I was talking about actually walked up on a meth lab while POACHING and called HIS BUDDIES at the sheriff dept
<---(this is why he'll never get caught). But they set up in the area and caught the punks. It settled down after that and I didn't have many problems at all til just recently. So I imagine they'll bust another one, hopefully not on my place. My dad told me the meth heads have been setting shotgun traps around their meth labs in this area. Two shotguns aimed in at the intruder with a tripwire. I'd sure hate to walk through one of those early before sunrise. I sure do hate white trash.
Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person. - Fred Bear
