Three Texas men have pleaded guilty to criminal charges after they each poached a trophy whitetail buck, in three separate incidents, with a combined Boone & Crockett (B&C) score of over 535 inches.

A press release by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) said the men — John Walker Drinnon, 34, Timothy Kane Sweet, 37, Brian Eugene Culp, 47, — killed two 19-point bucks and a 10-point buck respectively and ended up having to pay civil restitution worth well over $34,000.

Only GW I knew about hunting illegally was the one who was shot close to Cooper WMA, but don't remember him getting a trophy buck.

The game warden stuff I hadn't heard of but it goes directly to the issue of trust! When the law enforcement agencies DO NOT apply the law the same to one of their own as they do to average Joe then how is average Joe going to trust them?

"Switched from off duty to on duty moments before" biggest bunch of BS I've ever read!

There was a picture of him with a big trophy buck from a previous illegal hunt, but he donated the meat, so that should count for something according to him.

Thank the Grand Jury process. They look after their own.
