Lac Qui Parle poacher, charges dropped....

11 posts in this topic

Not sure if any of you deer enthusiast have been following this for the past two years here in Minnesota, but this just makes me sick that he got away with this because of a little loop hole in the system. Just because of a dumb move by the dnr that violated this guys so called rights, this guy gets off, but in reality ALL know he's guilty. Where is the justice in this? 28 sets of antlers, numerous so called "legal" trophy mounts, not mention a fully preserved piebald deer in the freezer. wall.gif Oh yeah, not to also mention no more than 4 deer registered by him since 2004. He has killed many once in a lifetime deer from this area. I guess all we can do is hope karma wins in this situation. Thoughts?

 

Admin: please move this to the Minnesota section. My bad

DNR didn't violate his "so called rights" they violated his actual Constitutional rights.  And the way law enforcement gets reprimanded for doing so is the charges get thrown out.  Maybe it should be a misdemeanor with a big fine for the CO, but right now there is no penalty for the CO violating someone's rights.

Del, I was being sarcastic about saying "his so called rights". To me, this POS shouldn't have any rights at all. You don't know what he has done in the area, if you did, you may feel a little different about it...

He may and certainly seems to be a very bad person.  Saying he shouldn't have rights, however, is also a bad thing.  I hope you were just venting your anger, since "he shouldn't have any rights" sounds like something that leads to lynch mobs.

Out of anger yes, I should rephrase that....he should have no more right to hunt or fish anymore, or for a substantial amount of time.

He wasn't convicted of anything, thanks to DNR screw up.  They blew it big time. 

I am beginning to wonder about the DNR competence.  First Mille Lacs and now this.  Maybe it is time to get rid of the top several levels.

Maybe it needs to start with the training. Train them that COs are not above the law.

You can say that again. Sounds like they had been after this guy and watching him for quite awhile, you'd think they make sure everything was 100% correct so they'd have an airtight case. Its a head shaker...  Some DNR heads should roll!!! The supervisor of that area or whoever agreed to the GPS on the truck to start with.

 

And as far as putting a GPS on a persons vehicle, sounds like a dangerous maneuver to me!!! If the guys dog barks or he heard them, the best case scenario would be that he'd call the sheriff, worst case scenario is he comes out with a shotgun.... Who is at fault if someone gets shot??!!

They'd been after him for 5 years from what I heard...

Heads should roll is right, after all the money and time they put into it. That's probably why they appealed the ruling, because of there stupidity. If they wanted to catch him, they could have road with any one that knows him from around here, we all know where he is...

It's a shame this d-bag walks because of an avoidable procedural cock-up on the DNR's part, but it's the right call. My question has been: If his actions were well known in the community, and he's essentially stealing resources from the community, how has been so hard for the DNR to catch him? No one turns him in? Maybe a little frontier justice? Disrupt his "hunts", etc?

    •   No expert here either but I've talked to a couple.    Would your new, expanded slab be conducive to making the addition another zone or zones?  You could maybe run that expansion off different lines from the manifold above the slab so you don't have to route and pour over seams.   Definitely insulate below with GOOD insulation.  As mentioned, heat doesn't really rise the way we think it does; it moves to the cold and the earth will soak it up.   Heating your loop would be cheapest with a natural gas fired boiler, propane second.  Geothermal is expensive to put in so your payback on a new system is long.  Air source heat pumps are great until it gets really cold.  In the end, radiant in floor is the most efficient way to heat, but yes, it's slow to respond.  But if your toes are warm, you will be too.
    • I appreciate the response, I take nothing personally and didn't mean to be snippy in my reply. There are a lot of great comments on here and I will keep you posted on what I decide. Thanks again. 
    • Ice is quickly thinning on those northern lakes that still have ice with dangerous conditions on most lakes. The Wisconsin River is now open even in its northern stretches, but ice chucks can be seen melting along the river's edge. The lower Wisconsin River has finally dropped to near normal levels. Some walleye and brown trout are being caught on the Menominee River both trolling and angling from shore. Low water and cool water temperatures slowed the walleye run so far on the Oconto River. Anglers along the Wolf River have been starting to catch walleyes. A few sturgeon have been seen along the Wolf River, but warmer temperatures are needed for the sturgeon to start their annual spring spawning run. Walleye and sauger action on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin is slowly picking up.The steelhead season opened on the lower stretch of the Brule River last weekend and anglers reported good successPhoto Credit: DNRSpring steelhead fishing opened last Saturday for the lower stretch of the Brule River and there were lots of fishermen and fisherwomen on the river many who had a successful opener. .
    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
