View Full Version : What kind of people are out there.

Hey all. I just got back from caching this morning. Found one and couldn't finish looking for the other. Found power to the people. Looked for stream of the dead but for anyone interested it will be awhile I hope the container is water proof. It's under alot of water right now.

On to my gripe.

While we where on our way back from stream of the dead we decided to finish the loop and come out on Rt. 16 for a nice ride. Has anyone ever been on the Tannery Road.

I was disgusted. I was driving down the road to find a deer leg in the road. No biggy. I stopped to kick it out of the road only to find the remains that have been there awhile. I thought it was just another deer hit in maine. Then I realized that the deer was part of the rest of a mess of dumpings of leaves, branches, sheetrock and other house hold debris as well as about five beaver carcuses and beaver tails and who knows what else. I didn't have the means of picking this stuff up, but should I go back? It would be atleast all day to clean this up aswell as gross. I won't point fingers but there is a local Taxidermist in the area. Hummmmm?

I would certainly at least report to the local game warden service. Maybe this is the act of some kind of illegal poaching but at least someone will know of it and maybe even find evidence that could be something to prosecute. Just my 2 cents

This may be a place for you to host a CITO event of strong stomached cachers. This of course would not include me unfortunatly. :eek: Some people just have no conscience or clue what they do to the area they live in. I for one can't imagine it would be the taxidermist. Dumping on your own road would be asking to get caught.

As much time as I've have spent in the woods and hunted, My friends and I do put alittle more effort into making sure that if your going to dump legitimate kills in the woods, that they are not just one a road for any one two see. Lets face it yoou do have to dispose of it some where.

That is horrendous! Maybe someone put it in that spot because they thought it would be easily associated with the taxidermist. I would have a hard time imagining that a professional such as him/herself would be so inconsiderate, but I may be wrong. Just the same, it is a shame and unfortunate. I agree with Haffy - let the local game warden know. I also agree with you - what ARE people thinking!!??!!

Doesn't sound like taxidermist to me - they're usually pretty good about BURYING their stuff. Sounds more like a trapper - beaver carcases and all.
Also sounds like he was short of meat in his freezer.

It could be a poucher.

Not a poacher if he's got beaver. Takes pretty good trapping skills. :(

Maybe he's shooting them to keep them from daming up his property and dumping them.

LOL! That reminds me...

My Dad tells me of times in the 1950's (before the vast network of logging roads and tracked excavators mad removal easy) he used to accompany the local game warden when he went out to dynamite beaver dams. Said is was the greatest fun!
