RE: Mountaineer Cited 


When did the hunt take place? I thought this all happened before the Baylor game, which was early bear season, when there was no concurrent deer firearms season?

EDIT: Just watched the video.  It was definitely not early season, judging by the lack of leaves on the trees.  So what was the deal back before the Baylor game?

Separate hunt.  Apparently, he and some friends took a Wounded Warrior on the pre-Baylor game hunt.

So he takes a wounded warrior hunting and that doesn't make the news? What's wrong with America?

I thought DNR had to witness the act in order to cite for a misdemeanor.

No way that will hold up. There's no proof. It's not like he videotaped it and posted it on the web or anything.

D'oh!

they would have to prove that he didn't have it on.  and that would be hard pressed to prove.  he could easily say that he had it on but took it off for the picture.

Google for the quote from the head of the WVDNR.

Apparently, they had enough "evidence" to issue the citation.

The DNR can write a citation but he has a right to contest it in court. I would say I want a jury trial, what evidence would they show. I am willing to bet they have nothing that could convict.

This whole story about shooting the bear with the muzzel loader and blaze orange thing is ridiculous   Not that big of a deal, IMO.
