Vermont game wardens seek public’s help to stop poaching

WCAX 3

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) Vermont game wardens are seeking public help in stopping poaching this hunting season.

Vermont Fish and Wildlife Col. Jason Batchelder says anyone witnessing poaching, or thinks they know of poaching, should call the nearest State Police barracks to report it. He says common infractions are baiting animals, or shooting animals at night. Batchelder says wardens can often make a strong case against a poacher if information is provided quickly. Baiting animals is illegal, even if you have no intention of shooting them.  

“You’re not allowed to place anything that a deer could eat or lick to draw them in, that goes for bear, turkey, moose as well. Essentially, anything that you could feed a deer that it would eat is not allowed for use in Vermont,” Batchelder said. “We’ve got quite a healthy population of people who like to shoot deer at night or over bait and it keeps the wardens busy this time of the year.”

Penalties include hunting license suspensions and fines. Rewards are paid by the state for information leading to arrests.

    YOU ARE GOING TO SEE MORE PACHING, AS THE DOLLAR FALLS AND THESE ASSHOLES FINALLY MAKE OFF WITH THE LAST OF OUR RESOURCES……MY GRANDAD SAID THAT DURING THE DEPRESSION,”YOU COULD’NT EVEN FIND A RABBIT”.

  2. around here, i was told that there was plenty to eat. everybody grew there own food, or stockpiled it. and hunted. no reports of game shortages. just that most people really didn’t even notice that much. not quite the same now but many in those days did so many different things to pay the bills that a busted economy didn’t affect them as it would now.
