A Florida teenager was cited for trying to kill a deer by illegal methods, and attempting to take game after legal shooting hours. Nothing earth shattering about that... happens all the time. It is not something that is going to be picked up by the news media normally. But this poaching incident wasn't what you would call NORMAL.
You see this teenager got caught in a stakeout. FWC officers had a deer decoy placed off the side of the road in an attempt to catch poachers shooting at the deer from their vehicles... which is illegal. Well they caught a poacher all right but this one used a slightly different method than all the previous poacher the officers have arrested.
The young man saw the deer decoy and then proceeded to steer his truck off the road through a ditch and then up a hill to run over the decoy. And now you know the rest of the story!!!
He was also charged with reckless driving and attempting to take game after legal hours.
