    Hunter stripped of his elk

    Technically broke the law but I do feel bad for the guy.

    Yeah, that's rediculous. 21 minutes! Takes that long to get to you're critter! Shouldn't you go find it first before you fill out your tag?

    Rules are rules but I think the warden could have treated that a little different. Like that guy said he had no intent of leaving the scene and just getting to the animal. I feel for that guy.

    I think this is pure BS. Just writing a citation for the sake of TV show. I know, I know they said the cameraman was just a fly on the wall. But are they saying the warden didn't know he was there!

    You've got to be kidding me. There clearly was no intent do do anything else but tag that elk. What a crock. I spent 30 years as a cop, and I don't believe that I was ever that unfair with anyone. Wardens get lied to on a regular basis, but these guys were up front from the get-go. If other states out west have similar rules, then I have likely committed the same violation numerous times.

    I'm sorry, but why would you punch your tag until you got up to said animal to verify that it is actually dead? It dang well could easily take you 21 minutes to get to it and verify that it's dead. Just seems crazy.

    Another reason not to hunt in MT. The guy had his tag punched before the warden even got there. Its not like he didnt intend to tag the animal. Sounds like a show because there was a camera crew there to me. If you hit at an animal and its not DRT and you give it some time before you go to track it are you supposed to punch your tag before you go or even find blood? What if your not sure if you hit it or not and you decide to give it some time before you go look. Are you supposed to punch your tag right after you shoot? Suppose you punch your tag and then realize you missed clean, then what? It has probabaly taken me over 20 minutes to tag alot of animals I have killed due to giving them time, or them going DRT and going back to my truck or 4wheeler and unloading things I wouldnt need to pack them out before I actually went up to the animal, or just plain being so dang excited punching the tag wasnt the first thing that crossed my mind! I understand that there are laws and they should be followed but this it taking it to far. The guy paid nearly $1000 for a tag and traveled through several states to hunt and then gets his elk taken away because he punched his tag 20 minutes after his elk hit the ground. Its not right!

    That's what makes FWP look like bad guys. As stated, the intent to take care of the animal was there. He even had it tagged by the time the warden showed up. What a joke. Montana should be embarrassed.
