I got the low down this am
So I guess they noticed the tire tracks and followed em Right to the next camp down the road. Called the dnr. The officer knew the people from that camp and had always been friendly with em.
He went down there and was welcomed all cheerily and at that point he ripped them a new A** and said he wasn’t there to be buddies. He wanted names and numbers to everyone that was at that camp. He stated something like the best case scenario that deer shows back up at the camp it was stolen from tonight. Then he got some phone warrants and such.
The guy who shot the deer had gone home Depressed as all H but two others remained At camp. Late at night a truck pulled in and two guys got out Quick, slid the deer onto the ground and got the heck out of there. It was a local neighbor who apparently was after that same buck all season. It was “his” deer and he was mad someone else shot it.. so when he went by to visit at the neighboring camp he noticed it hanging and planned to steal it..
The camp down the road came down and let them know this guy was no longer aloud around there place.
What a clown.
Happy ending though. Great job on the MDNR’s part on that incident.
I am so glad it was recovered and hopefully the thief will get an appropriate fine and loss of license.
I love me a happy ending.
