Which law? Serious question.
page 6 of the Ky Hunting Guide. I’ll try to upload a screenshot. If it don’t work and you don’t have a guide, download one from KDFWR website.
Not sure this is the false info they're concerned about. So it inflates the harvest number by one, no big deal.
That’s not the intent or application of the law in this scenario. That matters.
Someone mentioned Noel Feather, a pioneer bowhunter who used to publish many hunting articles. He was considered the first to rattle deer in.
Anyway, that's what brought him down. Killing a high fence deer and claiming it to be a free range in a different state.
Did he get in legal trouble, or just the hunting fraternity shunning him after it came out?
I think he was fined for crossing state lines and falsifying records but it was nothing compared to the creditability stain he incurred.
Really? It brought him down legally or professionally?
More professionally but he was fined.
One of the first modern day hunting icons to slip up in the public eye was Noel Feather. Noel Feather was one of a handful of hunters that could be considered a household name among the hunting industry back in the early days. He was at the forefront of the bowhunting video business back in the late 80’s. He was the guru when it came to rattling bucks within bow range.
Feather had a number of legally harvested B&C bucks under his belt and was the go-to expert at seminars and trade shows everywhere. But for all the good Feather was doing, it was one poor decision on tagging a buck illegally that brought it all crashing down. The story goes that Feather tagged a trophy pen-raised buck as a true, wild buck in his home state of Illinois. The controversy brought his booming hunting business and big buck reputation to an end in a hurry.
I think the administrative regulation number may have changed, the (9), while still applicable.
"Telecheck Info - Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife
Please note that 301 KAR 2:172 (9) prohibits a person from knowingly entering false information into the Telecheck System"
Ky hunting cereal killers detective work
Other than page 6 of the Ky Hunting guide, I googled and found some other places the unlawful information warning is posted. Looks clear to me. They don’t say some false information is okay. So, I doubt picking and choosing is what they want in their Telecheck system? Just saying.
I don't see any legal penalty, his falsifying the telecheck only penalized himself. He didn't have to check his kill in, so he basically just used his buck tag when he didn't have to.
He is only guilty of being a dumbass.
I saw it plain as day, tis just a huge pdf file; so, I did not scroll forever for date. Will look again. One place had it listed within the same KAR, but as 4, a b c and d, very specific.
