A lot of people love to hunt, I enjoy stalking in the OUTDOORS and sitting and watching game. To me its not as much about a kill as it is just being OUTDOORS, taking pictures and enjoying the peace of mind I get from watching everything. Of coarse I'll drop a buck or even a doe if my freezer is low or out of meat. I hunt all kinds of animals, with a bow or a rifle depending on the season. Around here a couple weeks before bow season starts the traffic on our dirt road picks up a lot. They drive the back roads at night or even in broad daylight an shoot deer. Most of these people cut off the hind legs or cut out the back straps and throw the deer in the ditch. I've seen some that just cut off the antlers and left the deer OUTDOORS to rot. That's just wrong, these people don't have game, that's just killing to be killing. The question is OUTDOORS: HOW FAR IS TOO FAR? Last year someone shot five does at night, cut the meat off the back legs and cut out the back straps and thew them on the side of the road not even a half mile from my house. There were deer bodies in garbage bags a little bit down the road from that. I might could understand if someones family was starving, but if that was the case, they would have taken the whole deer. These kind of things have been going on for the last six years that I've lived here. Maybe I should sit OUTDOORS in the edge of the wood line and video some of these travesties and turn it over to the authorities for prosecution. Perhaps this will slow that kind of activity in this area anyway.
