stopped by a place i hunt on the way home this morning to see if there were any turkeys in the field. sure enough there were 3 toms and some hens. watched them work there way over to a funnel in the woods to another field. then heard a shot. never saw any body come out to get the bird. there was a truck parked on a drive into another mans field. waited 20 min. no body went to get the bird. nice bird. went and got lic.number on truck. then went back and picked up bird. when i went back to the truck it was backing out the path, fast. then took off. called game warden and gave him lic number. he called it in and it was from another county. warden there found the truck don't know what will happen prob. nothing. he did write me a tag for the turkey and let me clean it . was a pretty nice guy. hate the poacher kill a nice tom. but he want be eating it..
yea weve had some bad neighbors in the past that used to come i from their line and shoot deer of our side, and that was the best thing u could have done. ive learned there aint no need in being the hero who chases a poacher down.thats got to be the pitts tho that some loser got your bird. there pretty bad around here of shooting strutting decoys in fields from the roads with centerfie rifles.
Good for you for calling in that license tag number. At some point poaching will catch up with him. Good thing that bird didn't go to waste either. Keep after 'em and make sure you call the law if you ever see that vehicle around again.
