Some of the stories were comical. Trespassers looking directly at the camera but not realizing it was there, giving the landowner a perfect view. Trespassers doing, um, personal things. Poachers walking out with a turkey or fish, or walking in with a gun and camo. People breaking into storage sheds, tearing up shooting boxes or destroying property.
Decorum prevents me from using some of the more colorful phrases uttered when describing these folks. Criminal is the legal term, of course. Folks committing these crimes often whine about not hurting anyone, didn’t do nothin’ bad, only caught a few fish or killed a turkey or deer … but the bottom line is they were trespassing, hunting or fishing without permission, and maybe theft or destruction of property. They’re criminals.
I know we use them for catchin both now...lol
