I'm glad they got caught and hit with a decent fine, but i would have thought the state court would have set restitution higher than the auction price of the last tag. Wouldn't that be the best indicator of what a bull elk is worth in TN?

I think that was just a slap on the wrist compared to what they should have gotten. Should have lost all hunting priveleges for life, lost all firearms, and a much heftier fine. IMO.

By law the maximum fine for taking an elk is 2500 dollars per animnal

I think the $5,000 dollars is a replacement cost, something different

This happened about 1-1/2 miles from me. I know or used to know one of the poachers, he's been in trouble before for stealing, sounds like he can't play by the rules. I could have sworn I've heard bull elk here before in the distance, so I probably did.

They only took the antlers and left the carcass to rot.

I just don't undestand losing your license for a year or even for five. Just like most things today you are better off breaking the law and will pay less in the long run for breaking it. I would love to be able to hunt elk in my own state but instead I am paying to go to CO and will end up with more money involved than this shmuck who did it illegaly. BTW I agree that there is not much that would stop me from hunting either!
