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?

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
