I read a few articles on it but no details and nothing to really make a judgement on. However seeing as how it was on his own land, was 77 years old and probably owned it for many years I can imagine what was going on when the rabbit sheriff tried to charge him with baiting turkeys.
As a friend of mine was telling me the other day about trying to keep people from hunting on his land the ones he has trouble with are the young and old ones. The middle age folks understand private property and game laws but the others don't. A very sad situation.
