Four White-tailed Deer Shot in Emmons County, Warden Seeks Information

North Dakota Game and Fish Department district game warden Erik Schmidt is searching for answers in the illegal shooting of four white-tailed deer in Emmons County during opening weekend of pheasant hunting season.

Schmidt said two mature bucks, one a 4x4 and the other a 5x5, were found in a bean field 1.5 miles east of Strasburg. A doe and fawn were found in a stubble field 5 miles southwest of Linton. It is believed all four were shot late evening Oct. 11, or early morning Oct. 12.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Report All Poachers telephone number at 800-472-2121, or contact Schmidt at 701-220-7160. RAP is offering a $1,000 reward.

The RAP line offers rewards for information that leads to conviction of fish and wildlife law violators. Reporting parties can remain anonymous.

Dirtballs is correct!

The sad thing is the guys that did this are probably the same guys that are complaining that they did not get a buck license this year.

What possesses a person to do something like this? I believe there is a shorted wire in their brain if you know what I'm saying. crazy

I doubt that. Bored drunks most likely.

This would be an easy one for me, if caught, no license again ever and you would lose the vehicle u used and a $5,000 fine per deer.

trouble is, the ones who do this, don't buy a license, they simply do as they please.

Losers or dirtbags is being too kind.

Besides the fact that they shot these deer out of season, why would they shoot the deer and then leave them? Pure waste.

Same question. As much as I hate it, I understand poaching. Whether it's to feed the family, kill a trophy, whatever, I can comprehend that. But to just shoot a deer, especially 2 mature bucks, & just leave em lay? I don't get it

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
