Default Big Florida buck poached

MCSO TRACKS MIAMI MAN WHO ILLEGALLY KILLED A POTENTIAL RECORD CLASS 23-POINT BUCK ON STATE PROPERTY IN MARTIN COUNTY

54-year old Mario Palacio had no idea our deputies, who are also avid sportsmen, keep close tabs on the local whitetail deer herd. The Miami man now faces a number of serious charges after illegally shooting and killing an enormous buck on state property in Indiantown. (pictured below)

While on patrol, Sergeant Kevin Kryzda noticed a dark truck parked in a wooded area near a construction site off of Citrus Boulevard. Sergeant Kryzda could see the driver using a spotlight to illuminate a deer. As the Sergeant approached, the truck sped off. Sergeant Kryzda notified Deputy Jason Slay who was near-by, AIR-1, and an agricultural detective for assistance. A short time later, Deputy Slay spotted Palacio’s truck as he attempted to leave the area. After Palacio saw the deputy, he pulled over. Around the same time, AIR-1 spotted a very large antlered deer carcass in the wooded area where the truck was originally spotted. Deputies determined that the buck was recently shot by what appeared to be a high-caliber rifle. Inside Palacio’s truck, deputies found hunting gear to include a bow, arrows, spotlight, and a single spent shell casing from a .30-06 caliber rifle, but no rifle. With the assistance of FWC, and use of their specially trained K-9, investigators located a .30-06 rifle in the area where Palacio was seen.

Mario Enrique Palacio was arrested and charged with Trespass on a Construction Site, and Trespass by Lethal Projectile. Both are felony charges. FWC is also investigating and Palacio is likely to face additional state charges.

The carcass of the buck is being properly processed and documented as evidence for prosecutorial purposes. The deer meat has been donated to a local facility. A preliminary and unofficial scoring has the deer measured at 205-7/8 inches. An official Boone and Crockett Club Scoring Professional is scheduled to assess this impressive deer to see where it fits into the state record class.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office Agricultural Deputies, along with patrol deputies in Indiantown will continue their proactive patrols and remain monitoring the local whitetail herd.

The photo depicting the deer still alive was taken by Sergeant Kryzda just 24-hours prior to being illegally harvested.

Wow, it amazes me the crazy things people will do to kill a big buck. Especially when it sounds like this was a well known buck. Dude deserves all of the charges he gets.

Just don’t understand why you would poach a deer, even if you got away with it you would always feel guilty about it.

I guess some people don't feel guilt, I always ask this question when I hear of somebody stealing thousands of dollars worth of stuff from someone. Not sure how people like that sleep at night.

that crap bag wouldn't feel guilty about it; heck he would probably have a big story about how he made a 200 yd running shot 5 seconds before sunset and bla-bla bla.. had to beat a pack of wolves off of him as he was dragging it up over some mountains bla-bla...

i think the gun photo was chopped/shopped. there is mud on that officers boot!

they keep a close eye on the local deer herd. the ones that hang out next to the road lol.

its a top 5 state record for sure. blows away the panhandle deer. standing beside the road, in so.fl, and pictured prior to the shooting. didnt run, just fell dead near the spent casing. they spotted the dead at night, from the road. after finding the bullet at night where the suspected car was stopped.

okay then. glad we got the whole story.

Mario probably identifies as a decent law abiding sportsman. So he would have slept fine at night with that deer on his wall.
And I'd bet a dollar that Seargent Kryzda already had a spot picked out on his wall for that cockeyed buck.

Uh Time for a "re-read"...

The spent casing was found in the truck. Not sure why they would lie or why it is hard to believe?? And many deer drop in their tracks when hit with a high powered rifle or at least when they are hit right.. And it was spotted from a helicopter... AIR 1 They have very bright lights..
The story came from the Florida F&G page....
