Buck Slaughter

I don't know what motivates some , but last week in Lycoming County a 40 year old guy was arrested for sneaking on an 800 acre private commercial hunting preserve at night and shooting 12 bucks total on two separate occasions in the fall of 2017. The heads were cut off leaving the meat to rot. The antlers were then either sold or mounted for display. The value of the bucks killed was $138,000. I know this operation has produced non-typicals over 340 inches. Big buck bucks.

It's a shame those animals were slaughtered for inches of antlers, something that motivates a small percentage of hunters, and will drive some to unspeakable acts. It has gotten to the point where if I see a hunter with a true trophy animal, unless I was actually there when it was shot, I always have some doubt as to if it were really a wild whitetail or shot in a canned hunt. Or maybe the head was simply bought and paid for.

Well, thank Heavens that is not the majority of us. In fact a very small percentage. But it does sicken me to know that sort of thing is going on. Both things - the senseless killing of animals and guys going on canned hunts and passing them off as fairchase kills.

IMO...these people don't belong with the rest of "us"...what they did/do has nothing to do with fair chase hunting.
