Actually, that is the crazy dumb thing about a lot of poachers...they are driven by their need to brag about their kill, so they have to show them off. Mounting it and displaying it is to be expected by some of these dumb pricks. Social media is another way that many of these jackwagons are being caught...they just have to show off their kills.You would think that you wouldn't mount a buck that you poached and put it on display at an expo.
I go the other way, why do individuals put such a HIGH cost on a animal? 300k for a AI deer tag? Are people that insane?Why is it that the wildlife agencies put such a low value on the individual animals?
Great, valid points! I agree completely with the statement that antlers have become idols for some people!I go the other way, why do individuals put such a HIGH cost on a animal? 300k for a AI deer tag? Are people that insane?
I really feel lately like antlers are the modern day Idol's for alot of people. People build up such a fenzy, demand over antlers that it drives alot of sketchy behavior, poaching, way beyond their ability long range shooting, wounding 3 or 4 before they finally kill one, trespassing, etc etc. I just dont get it. Geeze I dont even pick up a shed when I'm out hiking. I just dont understand it personally...
