This brings up something I saw at the Hunter's Extravaganza in Houston earlier this month, they had a trailer called "The Wall Of Shame" (for poached animals) on the side of the trailer there was an article about some pronghorns in New Mexico I think, 34 +/- pronghorns where either shot with high powered rifles at very close range or where run down by a truck then some where actually set on fire and left to rot.....they have yet to catch the suspects

While I was reading this I was wondering where these kids parents where? You know they had to know about it. Then I noticed at the end of the article where their were 2 more that got in trouble for having the meat. Chances are the younger adults probably live at home and the parents all knew about it. Hope the parents get held responsible for this too. If I would have did something like this when I was a kid (and or young adult) my dad would have probably called the game warden and had them come pick me up.

Joel, they can each be charged up to $1000. for each deer and $ 25,000.00 is a nice contribution into the Fish and Game fund.
I doubt they killed them deer because of hunger, the state of Vermont has Foodbank, Food Shelves and Community Meal Sites for hungry Vermonters,
Vermonters strive to make sure no other Vermonter goes hungry.
