Game poachers make profits Austin Texas a Texas needs to beef up its enforcement of game and fish Laws or poachers will be making big time profits the Texas Parks and wildlife department says a there has been a 27 percent increase in game Law violations in Texas in the last three years a Chester Burdett director of Law enforcement for the Texas Parks and wildlife department told a legislative budget committee tuesday a violations in sports fishing Are up 72 percent for the same Burdett asked for 40 More game wardens the next two years plus a new 65-foot boat to Chase shrimp Law violators who now have faster and bigger boats. A a new Type of game Law violator is the one who shoots trophy animals out of season a he said. A we know of an instance where a trophy White Tail Deer head was shot in South Texas out of season and offered for Sale for 625,000. There apparently is a demand for such trophy Heads by unscrupulous Hunters who will buy a head hang it on their Den Wall and say they shot then there is the violator who shoots Deer out of season to get horns still in the velvet or Early development stage. Burdett said these horns sold for up to 6110 a Pound Are used to replace the scarce Rhinoceros Horn used by chinese Medicine men for years As a supposed sex stimulant. And there Are the poachers who shoot Deer any time of the year just to get the meat. They sell the carcasses for 620 and 625 each although there is a state Law against Sale of Deer meet. He said they have found instances where school Chil Dren were fed hamburger made from poached Deer. A fall this causes a year around pressure on Deer a he said. He estimated about eight percent of Texas two million sport fishermen done to bother to get a fishing License. State game wardens seized 665,000 feet of illegal fish seines last year along with 300,000 feet of illegal Trot lines. A Madison county Fisherman was arrested in route to Houston markets with 17,000 pounds of White Bass he had illegally seized. Another class of violator concentrates on non game animals and fish. Burdett said some poachers search for a certain species of King Snake in East Texas that will bring 660 to 6200 in Texas but is Worth 6600 in new York for Sale to private reptile collectors.
