What could this guy possibly be thinking? That particular deer had been observed on TVA property for several years by many people. He should be labeled a "Poucher" and should never be able to get a license in the state for life. He should also spend at least a little time in jail. The police car should be confiscated and handed over to the Alabama Game and Fish to sale and keep the sale of the car. He should also loose his gun to the same. This is what would happen if a common person had committed this crime and it should be the same for state officials. TVA should grow pine trees or some kind of cover along the roads so the open fields on there property can not be seen from the road. The temptation is to much for some people. And TVA should allow some kind of Bowhunting by a draw system on all of there property in Florence, Muscle Shoals and any other properties that are not utilized for anything. TVA has thousands of acres that is just sitting and not being used for anything. The draw hunt could draw alot of revenue for TVA. But there is no excuse for what this guy did plain and simple....

Do you think they will do anything, everybody is tired of double standsrds, why do we have to follow the law if he dosent? Its just not fair. The animals on TVA are protected. Read the signs, you can't tven take a plant or rock. Let's see justice at its best.

I agree. If it would have been a regular guy, he would still be behind bars. It is not fair. We must all abide by the rules. TVA/feds should make an example out of this guy. A beautiful creature lost his life on "protected" ground. Justice must be served.
