Yesterday morning I saw 5 does headed across a bean field, BANG, and the deer scatter. I see a truck go back and forth three times down the dirt road. A guy gets out and walks down the bean field and looks for blood. He runs back to his car.

I call my friend who leases the property with me. He shows up to the house that is rented right on the farm. There is a truck and a kid that match my description that was given from 500 yards away in a treestand and binoculars. My friend and him get in a nicely heated conversation. The renter's wife calls the cops. The sheriff shows up. I tell him the story and the previous three times the cops have come because of incidents with them.

I asked the sheriff if he would be willing to see if there was gun powder residue on the kids hands, he said no. I asked him if he wanted to walk with me to find a blood trail he said no. Then he proceeded with it's a he said she said thing. My reply is no it's not there is evidence you just aren't taking the time to find it:dizzy:. He was a nice guy and probably just has better things to do. I told him don't worry I will take matters into my own hands.

So I call the RAP hotline. Talked with the DNR officer, and he and I had a very nice and lengthy conversation. He asked if it would be alright to see if he could set up a Robo deer on the farm to see if he can catch them. I said sure and I would be happy to show you where to put it to get the most productivity!!!.

Stay tuned...:fish:

good luck with catching the guys! I actually had a buddy of mine get pulled over by three cop cars while shining near his house before the season started, i guess it was actually in a poaching sting, they said the guy comes every night and had taken some nice bucks and doe in a field that was heavily occupied at night, so its not just happening by you!

If nothing else, this punk knows there's someone watching the property and all too willing to call on him. That MIGHT deter him from doing this again.

Hopefully you didn't just tip them off by posting this on a public forum, where hundreds see, and then tell hundreds/thousands more- possibly your poaching neighbor- to look out. I would've kept it quiet until I had a nice pic of them being 'escorted' in a LEO vehicle.

Maybe ask the mods to delete this thread, until further notice? Seriously, I would hate to see the guys not get caught cause they were tipped off. Especially, since they are more than likely in the 'grandville' area.
