    Poacher sentenced

    A "gentleman" was recently sentenced for a 21 count complaint on the Kenai Peninsula. He wasted 3 moose plus other charges;

    Fined $100,000
    Jailed 9 months
    forfeit rifle and ATV
    No hunting for 3 years.

    I would have liked more than 3 years loss of hunting privileges, but hey, the rest of the sentence is a pretty good start!

    Nice work by AK game and fish.

    Here in NE, ranch-hand shot five speed-goats out of season...game and parks was driving down highway and caught them red-handed. $5,000 fine, no loss of hunting privileges.

    Ranchers here hate antelope...not sure if that played in to the sentence. Attorney may have done a good job...who knows.

    I've got two buddies who live in AK. Said when the game and fish wardens approach people, they often do so with handguns drawn.

    I'm not sure I agree with your buddies on the handgun thing. That was my career, and I never approached anyone that way. Things may have gone sour after I retired though!!

    Been approached by law enforcement in AK, they were polite and professional.

    I think that would all depend on what the people that are being approached were doing at the time.

    They were fishing on the Kenai River, said to have been way off the beaten path.

    That's the story he tells...but thinking back on it...he did tend to embellish a bit.

    I quote friend of mine often when she states, "the truth is probably somewhere in the middle..."

    And we all know that fishermen never stretch the truth.
