That's really too bad. Sounds like Matt put alot of work into finding this buck. Only to have it taken illegally. That's enough to really piss a guy off!

That's pretty funny Bo.I agree poachers should be more severely punished,but it's to bad people don't have the common sense to know better.They ruin it for the rest of us and give non-hunters a bad view of all hunters.

Some people think of poaching as a not so bad deal. It is bad, it is illegal, unethical and immoral.
Poachers need to spend serious jail time with loss of all vehicles used , all weapons that he owns, permanent use of a house arrest anklet and permanent loss of hunting privileges. When this has been levied and those paid, they need to get to the serious consequences. Tie him to a stake in grizzly country covered in honey, next to a winter kill elk in the spring when the bears are just coming out to eat.
That 'll learn him. Can you tell what I think about poachers. It's illegal to feed the bears, but that is one law we ought to let them break; they will be feeding the bears.
