Decoy Deer Helps Catch Poachers in Idaho

Decoy Deer Helps Catch Poachers in Idaho | Advocating for Wildlife | Scoop.it

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho game wardens say five hunters from eastern Oregon are facing charges and potentially stiff fines for hunting deer in southwest Idaho before the season officially got underway.

 

Idaho authorities announced the charges Tuesday — several weeks after setting up a sting operation that included planting a decoy deer.

 

The hunters were cited Sept. 28 in the Succor Creek area in a remote corner of Owhyee County near the Idaho/Oregon border. Wardens say one of the hunters fired six shots at the decoy deer and citations were issued for killing a real deer out of season.

 

Other charges include hunting without valid state licenses or without a valid deer tag. Wardens also seized the deer and two rifles.

The suspects are expected to appear in court on Oct. 28.

Candy Copeland's insight:

I see this on Wild Justice alot.  Hunters that like to kill things just can't resist shooting at the deer parked by the side of the road.  AND THEY GET BUSTED !

Could this work for rhino?

Amanda Duvall's curator insight, November 21, 2013 3:50 PM

This is good. There are people out there that are unethical.. sadly. I am a hunter myslef and it really is suprising people are so driven for killing something that there shooting a deer so quick and not thinking that they dont notice that its a decoy. These kind of people arnt thinking things through.

 Early Deer Hunting

            This Article took place in southeast Idaho where five people that are hunting to early are facing some fines. They were caught by Boise forest wardens, and the hunters shot at deer decoys and when the other deer had come over to the decoy, they’d shoot that deer depending on the gender and size as well as age. The hunters did all of this before hunting season even opened in southeast Idaho, and they were cited Sept. 28th in the Succor Creek area in a remote corner of Owyhee County near the Idaho/Oregon border. They were also hunting without a license and were expected to be seen in court on Oct. 28th 2013
