I'll bet the Law Office of Hormel.LLC could have argued that the regs were vague about family members being able to give tags to each other.
DAD: bang bang bang DAMN here son you can have my tag!!!!! shoot shoot :IBCOOL: :yike: :dunno:

I'm sure if they had as much money as Mr. Reichert they would have gotten out of it for sure. All it takes is enough money and the right attorney.

The story is very vague how they say it... I've kept up on this story for a while and the father had hit the deer and the son finished it off without a license. I guess I'm old school but I don't see anything wrong with that; better than letting it go off and die. But I don't see anything wrong with putting a deer out of it misery if its back snapped and its laying in the ditch suffering. Good thing I'm always to the book  8)


I agree the penalty was too much especially if the buck was already hit. They are Not the same as the poacher who shoots something out of season and without a tag or in season without a tag.
I tend to agree, they were honest with Leo and that is what got them in trouble.  I also agree that if this was a small 3 point or doe, we wouldn't be talking about this.
If I believed that was the real story I might be a bit sympathetic.  My experience with wildlife LEOs is that once they get the confession that will lead to conviction, one of the informal bonuses to the confessed poachers is LEOs don't contest their public version of events - and in virtually every publicized case of which I had personal knowledge of the circumstances, the poachers lie about those circumstances.     
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

2015. I found this buck 30 yards off a 4 wheeler road with what appeared to be a bullet hole in the shoulder.  We scouted and planned our limited entry archery season around him.  A huge let down when we found him the day before season in this state. Some tines were broke off; they're laying on the ground.
