    Poaching, let's get this straight

    From Poaching - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Poaching has traditionally been defined as the illegal hunting, killing or capturing of wild animals, usually associated with land use rights.[1][2][3][4][5] Until the 20th century, mostly impoverished peasants poached for subsistence purposes, thus supplementing a scarce diet.[6] By contrast, stealing domestic animals such as cattle raiding is considered theft, not poaching."

    A deer behind a high wire counts as domestic stock, it's raised in that fashion and it traded in that fashion.

    You got me confused WH (doesn't take much these days )

    In the other thread you say that "sensible poaching" is ok ?

    What's the difference ?

    Agreed. So arseholes who trespass to shoot animals on private property should be charged with aggravated burglary and dealt with to the full extent of the law. No different to walking into someone's home with a loaded weapon in my eyes. Its time to tidy this shit up.

    The problem is theft and poaching are two different thing's, but a lot get it muddled up in NZ.

    I've seen it a few times on here when this type of thing happens. Just look at the title of the other thread.
    People need to realize they are two very different things.
    If I went and whipped half of Dundee's cows what would that be called?

    You might find this hard to believe, but down here anyway cockies know about the poaching and don't worry about it too much.
    That is right up until people start doing fuckwit things, then the game changes a lot.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    And I would say the other 1/2 of the cows not so whipped would be standing round the paddock congratulating themselves on how narrow their escape was.


    I dont see how a domestic Deer shot in a paddock on private land could be seen as anything other than Theft involving a firearm and dealt with as such. No different from walking into a bank, shooting someone and leaving with the cash in my mind.

    Unfortunatly because its an animal and not an important person the wet bus tickets will be out again.

    I can shoot a 4 inch Target from one side of the ranch to the other. You would want to be 3inches or less to attempt that Wirehunt

    Semantics aside I don't believe there is any legal offence defined as poaching in Mew Zealand so it's something of a moot point
