Well if you’re gonna play then you gotta pay! If these jokers had been caught in Michigan doing the same thing they would have lost their firearms and all hunting privileges for life for this one…and that is before they went to court!

I want to know when the season opens on the “Gelatin Art Students”. You know, the ones photographed next to the BB 18 fuse boxes from LittelFuse from Chicago. Oh, you didn’t know. We’ll, you do now.

Lots of dead deer on the side of the roads lately. I wonder if it’s legal to pick up a fresh one. Lots of free eating there, my boys.

Duh! I reckon some folks just don’t get it when it comes to hunting and fair play………say Wut?

Mike

Haha!

Wut?

“Actually we just post whatever the hell we want to post.”

That’s a good answer. I can respect that.

Wut?

FYI, I was responding to Robert.

Wut?

No, you merely misunderstood my point. If Ammoland printed every story about poaching or if this were the only poaching that took place in the past few weeks, then your critique would be spot on. As it is, however, my question still stands: How do they choose which random poaching articles to feature? Also, why don’t you want to hear about the double-parking thing?

Bob,
What is the point of your quibble?

Eric

Well, if you do the crime, get ready to do the time…it’s really that simple my fellow Americans.

Robert

It says right in the main title of the site….. “AMMOLAND Shooting Sports News” I believe poaching would be a shooting sports news related article. Perhaps I misunderstood the meaning of the term “Shooting Sports”?

Wut?

How does this site decide which random marginally-firearm-related articles to feature? I mean, I just heard about somebody double-parking outside a Cabelas in Utah, if you’re interested.

Actually we just post whatever the hell we want to post.
