"What we wish to accomplish are BETTER laws with stricter punishment for poaching, and/or anyone caught spot lighting and poaching. We, the perople, wish to see their (offender(s)) hunting license revoked for the rest of their lifetime, considerable fines and jail time of at least 6 months. If no hunting license, then (for first offense) 500 hours community service picking up deceased animals from roadways, considerable fines for injury or death of an animal and jail time of at least 3 months in prison and never allowed a hunting license."

Poaching is a common practice in my area of Indiana and though I know of many people being reported, law enforcement and DNR are reluctant to become involved in the matter. To be tied in with the poaching it is not uncommon to hear stories of contests that occurred between individuals to see who can kill the most deer for bragging rights and in some cases a small prize. This is not hunting and the true "hunters" would be and are ashamed of such behavior.
