 I think there is a 24hr waiting period. :dunno:
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

You pay big bucks, you want big results. It all boils down to money.

I'm not against the tags or the money it brings in. People just have to remember once big money is involved it changes people.

And some wonder why locals hate these tag holders  :)

3. Using aircraft: It is illegal to:
Use an aircraft to spot, locate, or report the
location of wildlife for the purpose of hunting.
Hunt big game on the same day you were
airborne for any purpose, except for a
regularly scheduled commercial flight.

Described as "a strong supporter of elk hunting and improving elk habitat," he has killed several monster bulls by outbidding other rich trophy hunters to get coveted tags, including $40,000 for the 2007-08 New Mexico Governor's Tag, $19,000 for the 2001 Oregon Governor's Tag, $16,000 for the 2003 edition, and an undetermined amount for the 1999 California tule bull elk tag.
Lets not forget all the money spent on Raffle tickets, he spent a lot and got at least one of the tags last year.

Now that he is going to sit out for a couple years, maybe it will improve our odds in the raffles.

I think his records should have an asterisk next to them if they are still recognized, similar to baseball players on Roids.
Seems like most hunting offenses result in loss of the trophy, not sure why this is any different. :dunno:

Well, when you take into account the amount of money that the WDFW would probably lose
.....  there ya go.. money does buy you a free pass.... he got a minor slap on the wrist...  like you would a 2 year old, not like a person that just broke the law.
By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show respect for their god, other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'.

thats crazy ...but if you have that kinda money to kill an elk on a governors tag then you can definately afford the tickets for being illegal  :bash: :bash: :yeah: This is why I have not much use for ( trophy hunters ) they pay big bucks to kill big animals and call themselves hunters ...just so they can brag up all the big animals they killed without much effort ....no thanks , not in my eyes  :twocents:

Tag holder chatting with a business associate looking at the mount sipping brandy:
Mighty nice elk
yes it is
how did you get it?
well it was a rough hunt i tell you, i was fogged in for the morning, then i got word the weather was clearing so i set out
dressed in $1000.00 dollars of the finest imported latest not yet sold in store camo.
I climbed aboard my steed, a Bell 206L-4, and climbed to an alltitude perfect for glassing,
after several tense minutes i spotted this monster hiding in a canyon not accessible to anyone on foot
we made several passes, running this bull around the bowl until his tounge was dragging and i knew he was the one, radioed ahead to my "guide" and sent him the gps cordinates so he could be ready to retrive my trophy, and bring his posse and camera. after dismounting my noble steed (see bell 206L-4) i made the trek to the edge of the meadow and dropped him with my newest .000001 moa rifle from "You Cannot Afford it Rifle company"
took some hero shots and made it back just in time to watch jeopardy....

To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

A $5,000 fine for a guy who paid $44,000 for the tag Plus whatever for the guide, heli, etc... That is about a half hour of work for him.. What a load of crap...
If its brown knock it down

This is correct but does not include regularly scheduled commercial transportation, as well as a few other exceptions. Basically, you can't scout aerially.

Funny. But I believe it was a little more like this:

Ring ring ring.
yellow
Todd?
Yup. Wick, is that you?
Yep, we got your bull spotted. Jimmy flew over him not more than fifteen minutes ago.
Niiiice! Is he as big as you thought?
Yup. He's a goodun. How soon can you be here?
I'll have Charles fire up the helicopter, probably 30 minutes. You think he'll still be there?
Well, we got John, Carl, Fred, George, Walter, Toby, Jerry, and Howard headed up the hill for first watch.
Niiiice! You think we can go to Applebees after? I love their wings. You like their wings Wick?
Sure Todd. Don't forget your checkbook.

Maybe he is spending $60 on raffle tickets and figures spending that wad would guarantee him the tag? :chuckle:
