Why would they be shooting so many calves out of the group? Hoping maybe one of them had some small spike nubbins to be a legal spike? Or just spraying bullets at a legal spike in the group and hit a bunch of non legal animals in the process?

I put my money on PETA

Wouldn't surprise me if it was non hunters.
Same.  You tend to see a lot of that type of bs in order to create their false reality.

Something like this should be more than 10pts.

I'd donate some cash to increase the reward. Although don't think anyone should need a reward to motivate them to report these idiots.  Spend some time in the bars and some dip*censored* will be running his mouth about this.

What would the punishment be if this was natives?

Too bad the charges won't include mandatory vasectomy's for all the males who did this mass shooting.

Yes really but not in a stirring the pot kind of response... we know from the article what the punishment is for anyone other than natives but do some tribes have wasting type laws or anything comparable, that is all I meant.  White, Brown, Black or Green this is an indefensible act!!!   

    u took it the wrong way  :yike:

I didn't take it the wrong way. I read it just the way it was posted. Had you meant it another way then you should have elaborated a little more on the question. And yes, we down here have similar laws.

I hope they get these guys and I hope the WDFW gives all of the resources needed to arrest and prosecute these people to the fullest. We'll see.

That is messed up!  Someone has to know some details.  There are a ton of people in that area.  To me this looks like a group of part hunters trying to fill a cow tag and they went nutz.  This makes my blood boil.

Maybe concentration camps too?

Forced sterilization could be used against so many crimes. While we're at it let's just round up certain demographics and sterilize them as well. After all they are going to commit a crime at some point in thier lives anyway.

Yep hyper sensitive but I get it... I guess I could have elaborated from the beginning cause I am curious since there are so many protected special classes of people that live within the borders of the US but aren't required to follow the same rules, that's all   :tup:

Lets focus on trying to catch these thieves vs hypothetical scenarios of what may play out IF a certain group of people had done this.....
