IS IT REALLY AGAINST THE LAW? I think I have mentioned in the past that I retired from mining early in 2009. Two years later, I went to work for a mining contractor. After a year or so, the job was finished, and we were all laid off. After two months of being retired again, I went to work for the mining company that I had retired from. In a temporary job that will not affect my retirement income. And the ditch bank I write from, or about, is in a rural area. An area that makes most rural areas look highly populated. And there is a lot of wildlife there. No, not the bar hopping kind of wildlife, but the actual real animal type of wildlife. Specifically Elk. No, not the club but the animal variety. And some of the people I work with would like to hunt an Elk and have ask if I would give them a landowners permit and let them hunt on my property. I told them I have no landowners permits and my land is just a few acres, even though there are Elk there. So, in a joking manner, they decided they could come to my ditch bank and poach an Elk. Then one of them mentioned that poaching was against the law. As in illegal. And not the sick bird type of illegal, but actually a crime. So they decided that since poaching was against the law, they wouldn't do it. And on that basis, I am here to tell you, that since poaching is against the law, remember that the next time you decide to eat a poached egg, don't do it, cause POACHING IS AGAINST THE LAW. And That's The View From The Ditch Bank.
