Them schmucks apparently just did it for the heck of it. They had no intentions of saving the meat, just dumped it. I imagine it they'd dressed and processed the elk themselves they wouldn't be in trouble.

hunter0925 , what you said makes sense till you consider the moral part. Going to cost me a small fortune to go to NM in sept. If I wanted to break the law , guess I could go over to LBL and climb the fence, its only about 5-6 miles from me as the crow flies. I could borrow one of my friends pontoons , less chance of getting caught and if I did it wouldn't be my boat they confiscate ! lol

Just like the large ring of poachers caught at Ft Campbell a few years ago.
When you took their fine and averaged it out for the number of years they had been doing it, the fine came out less expensive than buying annual licenses.

The elk story is written to make it sound sensational, but thos fines, jail sentences-suspended, and revocation fo hunting licenses are atotals for 5 people. Break it down by person, it isn't very much.
I like the auction tag value. Set that as restitution.
