The cows got off lite this year. I had shoulder problems and was not able to savage them during the CBBT eeling fest season.
Due to the above there are thousands of cows swimming around that should be thanking their lucky stars and praying that hookinfinger has a shoulder problem relapse next year.
All kidding aside, I think that the recent arrests of the poachers along with all the fishing reports on the Internet and in newspapers will have an effect on our limits.
I think that the recent poaching arrests are just the tip of the iceberg. The law did not spend 5 years just to nail a few guys. My guess is that these guys will start squealing on many people in order to try and save their asses. I would be confident in betting the house that we will be reading about folks here in Virginia that were deeply involved in this ****.
