    not sure I agree with you that it is "bad press for our sport"

    illegal hunting / poaching / trespass is a crime, people who are engaged in it are not involved in a sport, they are breaking the law, and violating someone else's property rights.

    there seems to be a culture where some folks in the hunting community don't see poaching as theft, I just don't get it.

    I hear you EBF. Was at a hut recently and 2 hunters there hadn't shot anything in the DOC area, so they quite blatantly popped over into the nearby private station over 2 days to get animals - nearly getting caught at one point. They didn't see it as "wrong".

    Different if you get lost, out of boundary but to conciously go hunt there is blatant theft.

    Yep, I have been looked at as a complete alien head when someone asks so do ya do a bit 'a poaching? and I flatly say no. Sadly, I think poaching has been taught to some people as 'part of hunting'. It is not. That's like saying shagging your mate's wife is 'part of dating'. In my opinion, some people need to grow up.

    " Sergeant Rob Crawford, of Motueka, said hunters were trespassing on farm, forestry and Department of Conservation land.
    Mr Crawford had started an email tree which included rural landowners, forestry companies and farmers, and almost every person said they had an issue with people trespassing on their land to go hunting.
    The issue was having serious ramifications on the rural community.
    Trespassing and poaching led to other crimes, including damage to property and theft from logging sites and farms, Mr Crawford said.

    A Murchison farmer who confronted two men from Nelson hunting on his farm said in a victim impact statement he felt "under seige" by the problem

    Tutaki Valley farmer Simon Blakemore said illegal hunting at night was an ongoing problem and it was difficult for farmers and the police to catch the culprits.

    Illegal hunters were looking for game. However, he was aware that cattle and sheep were also being taken. "



    I really fail to see how this is NOT bad press for sport hunting. The average joe blogs who doesnt know diddly squat about hunting will think hunters are running around poaching all over the place and nicking stuff at the same time.

    No shit there... More like we saw some shit go down through a post made here.. Reinforced its a public arena and some times notice gets taken and acted upon ...

    People do what people do so long as they dont cry when they get caught ...

    What the fuck does "He recently had firewood stolen from a paddock, and someone had spent time cutting up the log to take the wood away." have to do with poaching?

    And don't get me started on who is doing what illegally. Will we start with illegal closure of roads by forestry companies? Road that in fact have public easements on them and are in fact meant to be open in daylight hours. Will we go there? Cause I would fucking love to have the money to nail those cunts.
    Same goes for councils selling roads to said forest companies so they in fact can ditch responsibility of them. They come under the cock suckers catagolory.

    I know a guy who has lost 600 sheep (!) this year just gone. Thats theft. I have a real issue with people going onto another persons property and taking their livelihood, taking food from his children's mouth so to speak. But if CD happens to wander into the pines owned by some big Japanese forestry conglomerate and take a wild animal from it, good on him.

    Now that's not on, who would take 600 head. I'd be looking for another cocky not a hunter. I don't get poaching though. A phone call and or a hot drink is all you really need to get onto pretty much any land you could want.

    Not all the time. A lady has a farm round here with deer as far as the eye could see, wouldn't let anyone hunt then then got a chopper to fix the problem

    On my last visit to private proverty, I got the coffee and home made slice Be good to other people, they will be good to you. And you might just find you have a mate at the end of the day, not just a land contact.
