Elk Poacher Kills a Bull Elk in Cataloochee

I can't believe some idiot shot an elk in Cataloochee. Some people are calling him a "hunter". Not so. He's nothing but a criminal. I hope he gets the max allowed by law, and then some.

I hunt and fish but I do not poach. This is way outside of what the law allows and he should face the max. for his crime. It seems he just killed it and left it to feed the buzzards. It makes no since.

I have watchd the wildlife in the park and they have little fear of the people. Shooting this elk was like shooting rats in a barrel.
