I can completely understand someone poaching for food to feed their family, but I don't see how anyone can get excited about shooting a trophy illegally. Not only is it not worth the risk, but I don't know how you could even feel proud about showing it off afterwards

I wish they would give more specific location info than just Grayson co. I reported a big deer with his head cut off and dumped in the creek at Sister Grove and Lincoln Pkwy. Neightbor's had been seeing a big wide 12 pt in the area and now he has disappeared. I'm sure that was the deer in the creek. I called the GW and he said "It's that time of year"
Funny, the way these guys are getting caught is putting stuff on face book.
We didn't have deer 5 years ago and now the place is crawling with poachers and yahoo's. They keep this up it won't be a problem much longer , nothing to kill.

Hope this makes the good people people think twice before posting pics of their deer on social media and forums bc whether you realize it or not, poachers are out there and word of mouth travels quick! Hope they throw the book at them!

Why can you completely understand stealing to feed a family especially when deer harvest in TX done legally is fairly liberal? I don’t agree with that statement that is heard over and over again. I bet you would not completely understand it if these said “noble thieves” decided to feed their family with deer from your property or club.?

Subsistence hunting is pretty much a thing of the past. Most of these guys that kill illegal deer "to feed their family" target good bucks and drive 4x4 trucks. Neither says subsistence to me.

There are a lot of poor rural families out there who might illegally take a deer and benefit greatly from several days worth of free meals. I’m not saying I agree with it, but I can at least understand why they’d do it. I’m not leaving the gate open at my place to make it easier for them. That being said, how does someone feel proud about poaching a trophy buck for the antlers? That’s a different type of desperation that I just don’t understand.
