That's what I would do.  push it back, call in a masher in September, take the deal in October, take a year off, buy the auction tag for 2017 and shoot another masher in the late season, December and never miss a beat.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I would hope that you would never be in this situation ;).

I think we know where this case is going...

So today is the day we find out if he can push this out far enough to get some September bugle hunting in?  He has the Governor/Auction tag for Pennsylvania also so he might be a busy guy in September.

Not that he doesn't deserve a punishment if/when a conviction is found I doubt he will be facing jail as he has no prior criminal history as it pertains to poaching. More likely than not, he will have fines, community service, restitution and lengthy probation but I doubt jail time. :dunno:

Maybe they will drop all the charges. I would really hate to be the prosecutor and try to weigh the odds of one juror siding with the defense.  It may be expensive but I think the odds might be slightly favor the defendant when you only have to convince one of your peers.    :stirthepot:

look at all the burglars, thieves, habitual dwi's, assault convicts that are let loose because we don't have room to hold them and we want to lock up an old hunter who paid $50k to shoot a bull on property approved by the landowner ?

PROBABLY NOT LONG TERM, JUST LONG ENOUGH TO TEACH HIM A GOOD LESSON, PLUS DETOUR ANY OTHER RICH LAZY FOLKS THINKING THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH STUFF BECAUSE THEY CAN RUN THE COURTS AROUND AND AROUND WITH THEIR WADS OF CASH. ;)

we want to lock up an old hunter who paid $50k to "illegally shoot a branched antler bull in a closed GMU" on property approved by the landowner.

There fixed it for you!
