    Sorry, but there was no "poaching", or "trespassing" going on here. Not only did he have permission to be there, but the landowner helped him load the buck. Shot with legal equipment, at legal shooting time, etc. The only debate is whether or not he was within 150 yards of a barn on an adjacent property. Not to mention he shot in a direction AWAY fromt he barn, and the barn is used, but not like a house where someone is living in it. Nothing was dangerous about what he did.

    Sounds like the next door neighbor is butt hurt & called Fleet to book him Danno.....

    The kid should shove a lobster antenna up the neighbors ass and let him know what it's really like to be butt hurt.


    Original landowner should have a bunch of friends over on a regular basis for shooting parties just to drive his neighbor fucking nuts.

    It's funny. Fleet states that "I had no choice but to cite"

    Oh really, Had it been a friend or family would the citation have been written?

    It used to be common sense would dictate when authority would cite and when a warning and education would be implemented. Protect and SERVE.

    I've seen Fleet use discretion in the past (with me) so that is why this is rather puzzling. I guess I got lucky.:rofl: I thought he is an ok dude. I'm gonna scrape off my BD sticker :rofl: No use asking for it.

    What a crock of shit. All of my numerous experiences with the DFG have been nothing but professional and positive.

    This kid is clearly getting the shaft.

    Lame. Shame on you Fleet.

    Bummer of a story! That"s the baddest Mule Buck I've ever seen. My heart goes out to the kid working as an EMT(for peanuts) and wanting to go to PM School in prep for a career in the Fire Service(been there/done that).

    The shitty part is, this will negatively affect his chances of becoming a Firefighter if he gets fined and probation on this DFG charge. Even if it gets dismissed, he's going to have a hard time with this legal mess as 150 yards is 150 yards in the eyes of the law. It's hard enough to pass backgrounds with a traffic or moving violation on your record let alone a DFG illegal take/possession.

    I hope that this gets resolved correctly and that the young bow hunter learns a valueable life lesson without having to be punished for a mistake on the wardens part.

    Moral of story.....all a warden gets out of me is my hunting license and they can look at whatever they want. No questions will be answered. These guys aren't on the side of hunters or fisherman anymore, hence name change of the organization that writes them their paychecks. Fuck them.

    This info was copied from San Diego County Shooting Regulations.. it looks very similar with the exception of "or other deadly weapon"....
    ..
    CHAPTER 1. SHOOTING REGULATIONS
    SEC. 33.101. NO SHOOTING NEAR HABITATION -- SHOOTING RANGES.
    (a) Other than in defense of person it shall be unlawful for any person to discharge any pistol,
    revolver, shotgun, rifle or any other firearm or device fired or discharged with explosives, at any
    place within the unincorporated territory of the County which is not a reasonably safe distance
    from all recreational areas, communities, roads or any occupied dwelling house, residence, or
    other building or any barn or other outbuilding used in connection therewith except on and
    pursuant to the safety regulations of a shooting range established and operated pursuant to a
    permit issued by the Sheriff.
    (b) For purposes of this section, 150 yards or less is not a reasonably safe distance from any
    occupied dwelling house, residence, or other building or any barn or other outbuilding used in
    connection therewith unless the person discharging the firearm or device is the owner, person in
    possession of the premises or a person having the express permission of the owner or person in
    possession of the premises.

    IF this gets prosecuted, I see the following scenario at arraignment.
    Public Defender talks to asst DA and offers to pay $150 fine and 18 mo.s probation with the record being expunged upon successful completion.
    Asst DA more than happy to accept.
    Makes offer to judge. Judge accepts. Next case ..........

    Yes, I have experience with misdemeanor arraignment court ;)

    The sky is not falling.
    Josh will be fine.
    What is the defense the "defense fund" is going to fund?
    He is on the record in the article that he shot his bow within 150 yds. of the barn.
    That is a violation. A ticky tack, bs, citation in ones opinion perhaps, but that's not what the judge rules on.

    total california bull shit! just shared this with a game warden friend of mine here in arkansas. he just laughed! said that law would shut half the state of arkansas off to hunting! judgement call! bad one at that! i'd put up a 5x10' garden shed every 140 yards around that ass hats land everywhere i could and shut his ass off from hunting!

    It almost seems like the Wildlife Steward ( post Humane Society title change ) was pushed into action by other forces.

    I hope the DA uses common sense and recognizes the Hunter was bow hunting and not shooting a semi auto .30-06.

    Right- in every story I read the distances described were all well within the 150 yards.
