Glad they finally got caught. It's too bad a lot of these guys get the jail time part of their sentences suspended.
Maybe if poachers knew they were going to do jail time along with fines they would be more reluctant to break the law.
"Black bears lives matter". Where is the justice? We need a new bill in every state that holds judges accountable for prosecuting and actually sentencing these people appropriately. How does ones social status, health or former record come into play when deciding the punishment. It's absurd.
Well, there's the whole problem with a lot of these guys. LEGALLY able to hunt. They weren't hunting legally to begin with, therefore getting busted as they did. What's stopping most of the offenders from going out and hunting again? Not a darn thing. They just hope they don't get caught. Again.
Darby is a small community. Makes you wonder what the people supporting this loser might do. I don't give a shit if you are a "pillar of the community" or not. Poach and pay the price. I am so fricking tired of the illegal bullshit it hurts. Throw the goddang book at these people please!!!!!! His business is hat making in Darby, Montana. I'll post up the name later. DON'T BUY ONE. mtmuley
