A buddy sent me this via email. BTW looks legit.

https://www.fairfield-recorder.com/tag/freestone-county-texas

Texas Wildlife Crime Stoppers are asking for the publicís help in identifying an individual responsible for illegally killing a deer in Freestone County. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the individual. Officials say only the head of the deer was taken, while the carcass was left to waste sometime between the evening of Nov. 22 and the early morning hours of Nov. 23. The poacher allegedly shot the whitetail deer without landowner consent from a high-fence property near the intersection of FM 1366 and FM 27, approximately five miles outside of Wortham. If anyone saw or heard anything about this crime, they are urged to call 1-800-792-GAME (4263). Operation Game Thief is Texasí wildlife crime-stoppers program, a function of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Departmentís Law Enforcement Division. OGT offers rewards

Hope all the taxidermists in the area get this picture. Sooner or later the poacher is going to want to get it mounted.

The only reasons to poach a deer like that are if you can fence it very far away or mount it yourself. Hope they find the person and string him up.

Curious what the fine on this deer would be according to the State. Anyone remember a couple of yrs ago some bow hunter from TBH killed a huge free range deer? He posted pics etc and was caught. Anyhow they assessed a 52,000 dollar fine on that one deer for that guy and that was a low fence deer that he killed.

Since this is a farm raised ear tag deer that someone paid to have in the high fence curious what the fine will be if caught. Replacement costs to the farmer, the State etc.

Probably figures the guy will be caught, so he doesn't want to offer up and be out too much money!

It's based on gross B&C score. Doesn't matter if the deer was pen-raised or not. It's still the property of the State and you can bet that WHEN they catch this bastage, IF he is convicted he will face some very steep restitution charges. IN the case of the Denton Co. poacher, he paid $190/inch in restitution.

I would think the deer farmer would want his share of restitution. Some of those deer are well upwards of 20 grand and semen straws are easy over 10 gs. I can't imagine him not wanting a cut in the pie? Does that make sense??

The reward should be 25 times $1000 at least.

I see your point, 7mag, but I don't think the state works that way when it comes to deer. It will be an interesting case to follow, though. I'd like to know as well.

I wonder how they determine fines and rewards for something like that. I recently spoke to a guy about these places people are paying big bucks to hunt, they are not all one owner properties but groups of people working hard for their small piece of the American dream, in a partnership, trying to make a little money off their properties. Just a side hustle at best.

I wonder how many people spend big money just for a opportunity to try to find that buck?

He ought to be forced to pay restitution to those landowners in addition to his fines!

I think that happens to a lot of us who don't do facebook.
I'm still going to hold out. I figure if it's important enough that i need to know about it I'll hear about it soon enough some other kind of way.

It doesn't seem that deer in high fenced pastures should be property of the state. Land owners buy them, nurture them, and profit from hunters who harvest them.. It seems they're no different than other livestock.
