It's the Trump family magic. Commit a crime and others go to jail while you shuffle away without consequences.

Throw it on the pile.

So another thing Tiny Dick Jr sucks at, hunting.
 
2022-05-21 10:59:46 PM  
The illegal bait, "a pile of grain, oil and pastries" was discovered with a trail camera pointed right on it with "WLH" (for Wade Lemon Hunting) written on the side and with Lemon's own telephone number

Recording our crimes was the best idea ever!

'Let's write our phone number on the camera!'

SECOND best idea ever

So it's hunting like going to a stocked pond is to fishing.

Without naming Trump Jr., Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings said the hunter in the case "was actually a victim and a now a possible witness in a fraudulent scheme to lead the hunter to believe it was actually a legitimate Wild West hunting situation."

Fark that noise.  Trump is a "victim?"  C'mon.

The charges against Lemon from the Trump Jr. hunt were filed just before the four-year statute of limitations expired. The DNR initially investigated allegations of illegal bearbaiting on the hunt in 2018 and closed the case later that year. On Sept. 3, 2020, The Utah Investigative Journalism Project requested files on closed investigations against Wade Lemon Hunting. The DNR provided files on cases dating back to 2009 except for the case on the 2018 Trump Jr. hunt. DNR had decided to reopen that case and denied the records request, stating the release would interfere with the now "open" investigation.

Golly. What a coincidence.  A bunch of journalists start asking questions about how the then-president's son participated in an allegedly illegal bear hunt and all of a sudden the state feels like enforcing the law just in the nick of time.

Consequences? According to attorneys, he's a victim! He had no idea that poor bear was baited. $100 says he sues the guide. It was all swept under the rug by one of trumps buddies, but now that it's back in the news cycle it just gives the a-holes something else to whine about. Can't pass up a good public cry over being a victim.

As far as I knew everything was above board,

Weasel wording is a reliable indicator that the person is being deceptive (aka "lying") and knows it. Throw the book at him, pick it up and throw it again.

Speaking of rug, if the bear was taken illegally, then it's evidence of a crime and should be confiscated.

Reminds me of that King of the Hill episode where Hank and Bobby were so desperate to hunt deer that they ended up somewhere where they deer were practically walking up to them because of the automatic feeders at the facility they were at.

Just as fake and effortless.

That's mot what they do.  They light the fire to keep the bear stuck in the tree while a client is flown in. The let the bear down when the client is on the way, but this way they know where the bear is and don't need to track it.

My ex's parents have a place up in north GA. They bought a small plot on a mountain with friends to put a steel building up to use as a shed for their four wheelers and what not. Few years back, an acquaintance of their who was an avid hunter asked to store some hunting 'supplies' in the shed. Said supplies were in big blue plastic barrels he would toss bait into. Anything sweet that would attract the local black bears. They eventually had a break in one night, back of the building got torn open, the barrels ransacked.
I found it quite amusing.

That group would later launch its own super PAC, Hunter Nation Action, which spent $96,997 in ads against Democrats in the 2020 election, according to the campaign spending transparency site Open Secrets.

How many of these are out there? It seems like thousands as I keep hearing about different ones all the time.

Came across some shiatbag hunters a few years ago in Maine. Went into a coffee shop to get a coffee and the camoed up dudes were being handed a trash bag of leftover donuts. I asked what they were using them for, they said baiting bear. They didn't like my response that maybe they should focus on being better hunters and trackers instead of illegally turning wild animals into being dependent on random dumps of trash in the woods. I did report their plates to fish and game.

/shrug

A piece of shiat that sets out to murder a bear is a piece of shiat regardless of how the bear is found and killed.

These stupid farking asinine laws have nothing to do with the welfare of the animals, the region, or the ecosystem. The distinction between baiting or not is completely meaningless. Its only purpose is to convince you that there is a humane way to do it, when there isn't.

I always figured he was a master baiter.
 
2022-05-21 11:29:36 PM  
No schitt!! How do you think he got his current squeeze, the Karpy?

OK, jokes aside, if the "guide" was baiting, Jr might not have known... that is fair.
The questionable part is when some city dickhead flies in, gets walked to an animal, shoots it, then instschitts about the great weekend hunting and camping out.

The REAL test: Did he eat the bear?
The REAL question: How many hookers were there, and are they all accounted for?

A "hunter" PAC that spent its money on ads against Democrats. Seems legit.

Yeah, maybe any other person on the planet I would give the benefit of the doubt to. Not a Trump, though. I'm willing to bet they actually paid extra for this.

At the very least, I guaranteed that this outfit's business model relies entirely on clients knowing this is a service without "knowing" this is a service.

Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.

Not a hunter myself, but I support hunters in general if they have the licenses and are killing things that need to be culled (gives deer the side eye).

If you're baiting prey or killing caged quails and shiat, GFY.

/Deer bologna is delicious.

Nah, it's all bullshiat.

If we honestly believe that it's in everyone's best interests for an animal or animals to be culled, then have trained state/federal employees to do that in a regulated and supervised manner under an umbrella of accountability.

What we have is just pure bullshiat justification to allow people to go out and murder for fun.

If a state determines that a person needs to be put to death, we have the state execute it. We don't hold a lottery for everyday civillians to win a chance to go hunt them for sport.
