the commission actually took the meat out of the fridge of both outlaws( i refuse to call them hunters), took the 8 pt rack and the guy who got the buck was fined $800. however, i don't know if they lost the license. does that come later?
They should loose their license but outlaws don't need a license. I am in the insurance business. I see people that lost their drivers license for DUI driving all the time. Just because they loose their license it doesn't stop them from driving.
If your breaking the law do you even really care about losing your license? If your a poacher isn't everyday hunting season for you? Fine them put them in jail, but I never have understood people being happy these fools lose their license. Only thing that will stop them is severe penalties. Fines and jail time.
It depends on if there are aggravating or mitigating circumstances in the case. If there is no aggravation, he will probably get a year for an in season violation. Not knowing all the circumstances that is my best guess, it could be more.
I dont think either outlaw opposed the sanctions. the one guy the wco actually caught him in the woods over the bait, the wco told him they had video evidence so he copped out real quick. the guy who shot the buck went and got himself a lawyer but the lawyer told him he was better off just paying the fine. I think this guy is in a bit more hot water because he killed what would be considered a trophy buck.. I think the laws are stiffer in that case.
