Administrators BRAAP Posted November 1, 2009 Administrators Share Posted November 1, 2009 Hunter shoots deer in neighbors pasture without permission. Phlebmaster and his daughter came out to help scrap out some of our parts cars while I was assembling my fathers Turbocharged SBC 350 short block. Phleb is towing parts car from behind the shop with the tractor, his daughter was busy tearing apart an L-26, RTz and myself are out front talking about something car related when we hear the distinct sound of a gun shot. We look out across my neighbors pasture in the general direction the shot came from, some 200 yards North of us and see 2 deer standing there, and one then falls to the ground. Over on the road some 100 yards due West of the deer are 2 pickups parked on the side of the road. Long story short, one pickup is a guy that lives down the road approx 2 miles, driving into town with his 5-6 year old son, saw the deer in my neighbors pasture, stopped to show his boy the deer, took a real nice picture of the deer on his cel phone. Minute or so later some idiot pulls up in his pick up, sees the deer, gets out with his rifle, leans on the fence next to the road and shoots the 4 point buck! My neighbors house was directly behind the deer from the shooters vantage point! DANGEROUS! This is rural, but there are still quite a few house within range of an errant bullet! Then the idiot and his 10-11 year old daughter scramble through the fence and drag the deer into the back of the pickup as myself, RTz, and my neighbor who owns the pasture the deer was shot, show up on the scene. The guy who took the pic of the deer alive then takes another cel phone shot of the dead deer in the back of the truck! (Sherrif and State troopers are thankful for copies of those pics). My neighbor and this idiot are having words, idiot thinks he has rights to shoot anywhere he wants, neighbors says this is private property, trespassing, etc.. Argument turns to yelling, idiot then tears out of there with the deer in the back of his truck. Turns out the idiot is friends/related to another neighbor just down the road approx. 1/4 mile and that is where he took the deer! The Sherrif shows up as well as the state troopers! Neighbor and the cops go down to where the idiot and deer are, the rest of us get back to our day. This idiot is in trouble! Road hunting is illegal in Oregon, he will most likely be charged with reckless endangerment due to the shot he took and my neighbor is pressing charges for trespassing! I took this pic of the morning fog from our place, shows the scene; Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
