Iím thankful for our GWs out there and proud of what they do! To all the social media police yíall are something else. Received a call this afternoon regarding my buck from Henderson County. GW left a voicemail and wanted to check my deer. We met around 3pm and talked for 15-20 min. Yes the deer was legal as stated in my thread. Calls regarding were from TBH and Facebook.

Thanks for checking in on me. Tight nit trustworthy brotherhood!

There are quite a few game wardens on the green screen. Probably one of them saw it & it looks questionable so they checked it out.

Yeah he is on here. Told me their phones have been ringing regarding it so they wanted to mark it as checked.

He was a really good guy and so was his ride along graduate.

One of my lease buddies posted a picture of his kill in a non AR county a few years back & the next morning we had a visit from 2 game wardens checking our license & to make sure all our tags were filled out completely.

Crappy situation, I agree. Jealousy is ugly.

On the other hand, there was a deer killed a tad bigger than yours last year, around 278" that no one would have figured to be illegal either... Until it was.

BTW, I might be a bit jealous, but can assure you it wasn't me. Just had last year's buck on my mind.

That's strange that a caller would identify themselves as a TBHer when they called the game warden.

Yes very good guy. Pulled his tape out, measured and said see ya basically. I stopped him and asked questions and we talked.

It’s simple, someone calls (multiple), states there’s a deer close to ARs posted on TBH or Facebook in Henderson County and they go from there.

Sorry about that...you shot more antler in one weekend than I have SEEN on every buck total on my lease in 6 years. I got a little jealous and had to rain on your parade! (Not really, I would never do that).

I am happy you found both deer, I knew it would turn out well!!! Congrats again!

I’m glad they came out. Met a good guy and we have multiple GWs around here being that I live within 5 miles from TPWD Hatchery. Good to know the guys and anytime I have questions I can call them. They are out doing their job!

Where's the original thread?? I'm just curious where the concern was.

I don't do FB but wouldn't hesitate to post any hunting actively worth sharing here...hell, one of my best friends is the Fed GW & Have all my county GW's in my contacts.

I wouldn't care if I got a ring / visit as I consider them my friends but would be surprised if someone thought there was shenanigans & was told tbh was referenced.

I'd ask the GW for the contact info of the rats. If they refused I would file an open records request to get the info of the snitches. I would then give the rats a piece of my mind(a small piece, I caint spare much) and out them to the hunting public.

Good grief...no wonder you are irked. Why would anyone care about a fraction when you were fortunate enough to finish the job & it's a mature deer?? I guess next time anyone posts something close, they will need to provide a tape measure pic to avoid any nonsense??

Yes, people suck but glad you got to share how a visit from the GW is supposed to go. Sorry they had to waste their time too & basically had to follow up. I'm sure they were pretty cozy heading out & saw your posts on the front end.

TBH is not the right knit group it was back when I joined

Wouldnít hurt my feelings a bit if some of the ones that always have a negative or SA reply to every thread they post got culled from the herd

That being said, there are still lots of great people on TBH and still good ones among the ranks that have recently joined

I would not turn anyone in unless they were blatantly thumbing their noses at the law and there is enough monitoring of this site by GWs that I probably would be late
