In case anybody needed an example. Surprised the thought they could get away with doing this


Quote:
Webb County game wardens on patrol encountered eight hunters who seemed to be having great success based on the amount of shooting that they were doing, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

Upon contacting the individuals, one of the wardens walked into the field and immediately noticed large amounts of milo scattered throughout the field. Baiting fields to attract migratory game birds during hunting season is illegal, as is hunting dove over bait.

An inspection of one hunter's vehicle revealed two empty bags of milo feed in the truck bed. After speaking with all eight hunters, they admitted to knowingly hunting the baited area, as well as placing the bait the previous day.

The wardens subsequently seized approximately 360 mourning and white-winged doves and cited eight hunters for various hunting and baiting violations.

I'm bettin' that wasn't worth what that fine will be. Might lose their hunting rights for good. I hope they teach them a valuable lesson.

Possible chance they will just get a reprimand. Maybe not even that... Warden Fried might have been part of the group.

sad part about our justice system is that there are people who commit violent crimes towards human beings that "walk", but these people just completely ruined their lives for feeding and shooting birds. white wing limit needs to be raised in certain areas anwyway. or have a white wing limit aside from your 15 mourning doves

What is your point with the release report? Do you not know about Warden Fried?
