Poacher Gets Prison: Mule deer jacker claims he needed to blow off steam
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
Anyone can understand wanting to slaughter four mule deer bucks to vent pent-up rage. I mean, we’ve all been there, right, especially after a few drinks?

With such a sympathetic defense, you would think some sort of anger-management course focusing on psychopathic tendencies toward wonton wildlife murder would suffice.
