Jail doesn't do anything for people.
Felony status and hit them with MASSIVE fines. The amount of the fines should financially torpedo people. $50K - $75 seems like a good starting point.
Take their truck, all contents, guns, and put it on auction for CHEAP. Give people 1 bonus point for every poacher that they turn in that leads to a prosecution as well.
People don't learn unless their wallet is impacted.
I have 0 sympathy for a thief and that's exactly what these people are.
Yes and yes. Is there any history of hunters lobbying state legislatures on this front? Besides the animal itself, seems like the hunting community are whom this thievery most effects, and I can't see why people would be opposed to it unless they are the poachers themselves...That is the legislature's job.
