Witnessed some Michaux poachers in action...

Had my worst hunting experience yesterday, I got off work in the morning and headed to the woods. While I was still in my car, I heard a close shot and got out. At that time a speeding car parked off the road about 50 yards from me and two guys in complete camo went running down into the private land that borders the forest. I walked over to their
car and got the license info, walking back to my car I saw them come running back, each holding an antler and dragging a nice size buck. The buck was not field dressed or tagged. They were apparently in their own
little world Bc they had not noticed me up until they saw me standing by their car.I asked about how they got him and they fed me some make believe story, Anyway they denied any wrong doing and sped off in the car. I did report what happened but either way there is one less buck in the woods. I had seen a buck the previous day a few hundred yards away whether or not it was the same one, it still makes me sick.

If it was only about the harvest, I would have quit after day one.

Reported?

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

Happens all the time, hopefully something will be done about it, either way those game hogs will keep doing what they have always done.
