    Read the article in the Waikato Times yesterday and it said that the cops put up the photos in the local sports shop and within a week the cameras got stolen. Also said that he got a plate number but cops said there's no proof they were poaching.

    The police and farmers have set up an anti-poaching scheme in Waitaki and busted a guy from Oamaru poaching on Omarama Station. Issued a 2 year trespass from 127 farms around waitaki and central Otago. He'll probably loose his FAL too.

    Luckily for him, he wasn't wearing brown paper underpants or he would have been done for rustling too

    We all abhor these pricks and no one would like five minutes with them more than I but I caution against arbitrary vigilantism. Dealing with this is very much the domain of the Police.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Offal pit would be too got for them...

    "Poaching" forestry blocks etc is one thing (still don't agree with it), but thieves walking onto private farm and doing that shit makes me see red

    Any lawful occupier can trespass anyone they like from their property, no reason needed. So it's not really anything much worse than a bus ticket slap. Sigh.

    I guess voicing our detest of poachers is a good thing though? Might help spread the word to the next generation of hunters that it's really not an okay thing to do.
