Default Poachers on camera!!!

Two weeks ago I put up a trail cam (the first at this place) at my friends place that I've been hunting for a couple of years now in Leon Co. With the help of firecuss and fonzy88 we put up a new tripod stand and filled the feeders.
This past Wednesday I we finally checked the pics from the trail cam and I was infurated by what my eyes were looking at as I clicked half way through all the pics. Two poachers have really crossed the line by killing a doe under the feeder and they were too dumb to realize the little device on the tree was a camera taking pictures as they committed this unlawful act. If there is any GW on the green screen can you please give me some advice on how to properly take care of this problem.

WOW!!! You have got to be kidding me! I wouldn't be able to contain myself if I saw that on my game cams! I would call the GW and LEO ASAP and make copies of the photos and give the GW and LEO copies as well. If they are stupid enough to stand in front of a game cam and claim the kill they are stupid enough to do it again so I'd be keeping an extra eye out. Sorry to hear about this and I hope they get caught!

Thats horrible you need to make it a positive and call the operation Game Thief
1-800-792-4263 they will create a case number and forward your name to the Game Warden. The purpose of initiating the investigation through operation game thief is that these CROOKS can have part of their fine sent back to you as a reward for reporting and can be used for enhancement of the property.

Welcome to Leon county. Hunted there from age 10 to age 24 just out of Marquez. We had the worst poaching problem you can imagine. That county needs about 10 game wardens. That will activley pursue poachers. It's a crying shame. Sorry to see.

Thats what We were thinking, they call someone to pick them up. I have close to 40 pics or more, they actually walk right in front of the camera and dump the guts then they put her in the ice chest and walk away
