Skip to comments.Felons buying deer hunting licenses even though they canít own guns

At least 77 felons bought Wisconsin deer hunting licenses last year even though its illegal for them to ever have guns.
The actual number is probably a lot higher.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says only one in five hunters allow their names to be released, which means the paper could only check the criminal records of a relative few.
The Department of Natural Resources picks up few of those felons. Only about 20 were caught last year.
Maybe their wives own the guns.
Not true in many states. Anybody in a hunting party, even if not hunting themselves, has to have a license and any stamps or tags required of hunters. I was in a goose blind with a couple of friends and the warden told me I had to go back to the truck because even though I didn’t have a gun, I also didn’t have any of the papers.
Thats quite a gal, there.
not to mention, ruining the meat.
Bare knuckle Buck fighting could be an option ;o)
Do the licenses require a stamp to harvest deer? Maybe these guys like stamp art. I buy a hunting license every year just so I can go if the urge hits me during bird season (gun, ammo license is all you really need). But I keep the old licenses because each year’s stamp is really beautiful.
Not in my front yard! They move away if I throw a few stones at them, but otherwise they keep munching on the roses.
Hmmm... venison, right from the front garden...
I know what you'tre talking about. Deer are nothing but hoofed rodents. I shot my last one with a pistol after it ate my papaya's.
Thanks-again it was a a few years ago and I have not had to work with that portion of the penal code so I am not real weel versed in it.
I think I see where the State law can work within this-TX has a punishment class of “State Jail Felony” that falls into 1 to 2 year exception listed
Bows, crossbows, black powder, traps, other methods available.
I know a guy who got a deer with a pocketknife.
felons hunting are the least of our worries
i was a felon 20 years ago for some stupid things i did when i was young.it wasnt a violent crime and never involved a weapon of any kind.i am a reg.voter.some people should be alowed to have a gun especialy if the have gone so many years with out being in trouble,and have not commited a violent crime and not have used a weapon in a crime.i can get a rifle but i have to go back to court and pay out the butt.and then go through a mound of paper work.how many of you actualy know why people have the right to bear arms?ther are a few reasons that was put into the constitution.1 to fight a tyrant oppresive government,meaning your own like they had to do way back when.but whos to sa our government is or isnt?people say felons need to get jobs.well give them a chance some times insteed of have on an application (if you are a felon we cant hire you).that makes no sence.so if you have the chance to help some on change thier life do so insteed of shuting them out.when they kill you for money so they can eat or rob you to pay thier rent for thier family.mayby then youll think.people are so fake now days its sick.i think some of you here in this forum dont use your heads either.when will people grow up or quit acting so dumb?
