In my opinion we need to worry less about pety crimes like hunting vioilations and focus more on people who are selling drugs and molesting children. These men have paid their dues now and have finished their punishments, therefore the falsely informed reports are unnecessary. So easily things get exaggeated and stretched and the viewers have no other choice but to believe it. What's not mentioned is the "unnamed hunter" in the paragraph has been a well known criminal himself. He has been seen in the Tri Cities Busted on multiple occasions for drugs, probabtion violations, failur to appear, and failure to report. And this is the TWRA's "reliable resource".

Firstly, Jon, " sellers and molesters" are not the function of the Tennessee Wildlife Agency. That is, unless , they stumble into such in the field.
Their purpose is primarily associated with wildlife though they do have " police" powers. Your complaint falls to the police.

Secondly, to gain a conviction , more than the " word" of the un-named hunter would have to be presented and corroberated.

TWRA did what they should have done. The courts did the rest.
