He trespassed, he didn't poach. Says he had a license and tag, just that he was on another property when he took the shot. I don't think that could be considered poaching right? I know that even as a private property owner, you do not own the deer that might happen to be upon your land parcel. The state "owns" all the deer.
Still not cool what he did about not respecting property lines, though. That could get very dangerous depending on whose property you step on to.
Question about this. What happens if you shot the animal on public lands, but then it manages, after being mortally wounded to cross into a private property?Trespassing while hunting is considered poaching and is a great way to lose your gun and license
You'd have to get permission to access the private property. I believe you could also get cited for wanton if you were hunting really close to the private land and could not get permission to retrieve the game . For example....you could be hunting ducks/pheasant on public land near private property when a birds momentum after the shot causes it to fall on the private land. A Warden could think that you should have reasonably expected that to happen and cite you.Question about this.

What does the law say in regards to doing the right thing and making sure you're not committing "Wanton waste" by throwing up your hands and not finishing the job you started?
Despite being such obvious bait, I'll bite anyway. Obviously CDF and the voters control it. Really that was not a complicated question (my feeble attempt at discouraging such bait).Really huh? While I like the way you think.... tell me, who controls when you're "allowed" to attempt to take one then?
