This might keep them from outlawing live time game cameras.
Economy failure = Too many people spending money they don't have on things they don't need to impress people they don't like.

That's why cellular cams are so important.  If not a poacher, it could get a vandal, thief or squatter on your property that is up to no good.  Even if they ban them, I will run them on my private property for surveillance / protection. 

Glad they caught the poacher and hope the landowner gets his points.   :tup:

This may stir the pot a little. I am not supporting people breaking the law. But the shut down of spring bear is the first step in the shut down of the rest of our hunting rights. From what I read, the spring bear shut down was partially successful because the majority of the population doesn't support it. Which is unfortunate because in Washington it is safe to say they don't support any hunting. I encourage everyone to buy a bear tag and go hunting when it opens up in August. Our elk population needs our support.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Yup not a smart move or good look especially after all the spring bear controversy.  Hang him high and take everything used including the dogs.

Figure its either motivated by bragging or selling parts.  I'm just as disappointed about our lost spring hunt opportunity and nothing against hound hunting, just need to go elsewhere to run cat and bear legally.
