Poached Goat
« on: December 09, 2017, 03:39:44 PM »
Does anyone know what excuse was given on why a goat was poached that far away from the open unit? You spend all those years waiting to draw and break the law? Glad he was dealt with.

There was a goat poached in GMU 360 by someone who had a goat tag for another unit.

Maybe the hunter called WDFW and got permission....

I hope this is just an ignorant/innocent mistake.  Fully agree it's not excuse, but I'd feel better if the guy was an idiot vs. did it on purpose.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

I havent heard about this until now. But I do know where a couple real nice Billies hang out just across the line. I have asked the game department why the boundary's dont go farther down to include theses Goats. (with no response back) If it is one of those goats they are part of cash prairie heard. Sure would like to get more info on this. The one Billy I have watched up there is a 10"+ goat with real good mass.
