Thought I would share this! Awesome!!! So myself and 5 associates lease a farm in Central Ky ( 500 acres). We heard a lot of semi-automatic fire on opening weekend. We never saw anyone, but thought it was coming from the adjacent farm( sounded really close). So yesterday one of our guys was hunting the back of our farm. he gets in his stand a sees a truck parked on the woods edge. He knows its none of ours because we don't drive our trucks back there. So he calls the landowner, who in turn calls the sheriff. The sheriff and the landowner jump into his cruiser and come to the back of the farm. they run the plate and get this joker name and then the sheriff gets on his PA and calls through woods this guys name. loud as all get out. Fifteen minutes later this dude comes out. The guy says he did not know where he was. ( had to come through 2 gates and past many no tresspassing signs). Turns out the dude had no hunting license either! Long story short. The did not arrest him, but charged him hunting without a license and criminal tresspassing. The landowner is going to proscute him to the fullest extent. The Sheriff said that in fees alone the guys is looking at $2000.0+ not including court costs. Finally got one of those jokers. It should be interresting to see what comes of it. I will update as I get new info. They said the got was hunting with a Ar-15, was thirty years old and looked very clean cut. Ethical hunters-1 poachers -0.
