In a packed courtroom, 52 year old Ernie Tertelgte told the judge "I am a living man protected by natural law and I have the right to forage for food when I am hungry...You are trying to create a fictitious, fraudulent action."
Charged with fishing without a license and resisting arrest. Mr Tertelgte says he's being wrongly prosecuted for trying to feed himself.

march 2014 update of case
I keep telling Mountain Man, the shiny side of the tin foil goes on the outside of the hat.
In law, the rule is:
“Emergency” trumps everything.
The man is innocent. (well, he’s “not guilty”, I’ll need to check Black’s 6th...)
i wish i could thank this man personally for his service against tyranny.
Just take the damn Welfare and vote like we tell you.
Reminds me of something I saw as a young child. A white berating a black man for something :
Black: I thought this was a free country.
White: Not for you, (n word).
I should have paid more attention to that lesson.
I believe it is called “competing harms.” As in you can’t be trespassing for jumping a fence to pull someone from a burning building.
All this man is doing is attempting to care for his own”Natural Needs”!Since when is that a CRIME?????????????
33 U.S. Cities Ban Sharing Food With the Homeless
I follow fish and game laws and me and my 3 boys harvest much wild food each year. But I save zero dollars by doing this and the truth be known I can afford to pay for all the food I can possibly eat.
I hunt deer in an area that is economically depressed. The camp I hunt from is owned by an old college chum who can also afford to buy all his necessities. The guy who lives across the road from our camp is dirt poor. An old vet who refuses to take social security(in his late 60s) or any government assistance. I know he probably has no licenses and eats all the venison and fish he can harvest. Neither myself or anyone else in our group questions his lifestyle and I respect him more for not falling into the whole government as sugar daddy BS.
He is dying of lung cancer and refuses to get any assistance in that area either. I admire his self sufficiency and rugged indepence stance.
May God Bless him and grant him peace!
My office does the tax work for over 400 horse & buggy Mennonite & Amish farmers. I have so much respect for them. They pay their taxes, but will not take 1 cent from the government. They have no electricity or plumbing in their homes and lead a simple life.
They are about as self sufficient as can be, and rely on God for their strength through hardship. They bend over backwards to help others, whether they are members of their group or not. I know, when the going gets tough I have many friends. Right now I’m paying it forward.
Now, I agree that if he was hungry that there ought to be some leniency for his foraging for food, but other than that I'd urge all to stay very far away from this particular type of lunacy. It's like that crazy tax resister stuff. Crazy. Really just barking mad stuff.
This guy is kind of crazy whether his rights were violated or not.
When my husband was young and rowdy they were camped next to a foster parent with about 10 boys and one tag for a deer and according to my husband’s jeering derision little chance of ever killing a deer.
My husband was right and the guy didn’t get that much sought after meat until my husband and his friends broke camp and every one of them gave him the deer they had harvested. The guy cried.
