Default Prince of poachers.

Prince of poachers, not sure if any of y’all have heard about this book or not? It’s about a guy named Charles Beaty who poached the King and Kennedy ranches for years, killing some huge deer before being caught.

Any way I saw a thread of Facebook about it and said I would like to read it but wouldn’t spend my money in support of a poacher. Another TBH’er said to tell the author that on the original thread and he would send you a copy for free, so I did.

He messaged me and mailed me a copy so here we are.

I told Dan he can read it after me, but I figured maybe we could pass the book around TBH and have everyone sign it who reads it.

Man that guy must of had some guts to poach the king ranch! There are stories that there are a lot of shallow graves that contain poachers down that way!

I agree , I wouldn't pay for it to support him in any way for doing what he did. But I think it would be an interesting read and learning how he operated and got away with it for so long could also help in busting current poachers.

Next I suppose. Although I’m torn about even reading it. But it could be a good look into the mind of a poacher.
