Any thoughts or insights.
Charged, but not convicted, yet.
You have to ask yourself why would a well known guide who has a big reputation in the northeast for getting his clients into good shooting have to stoop to something like this?
Kind of what I was thinking - seems the risk wouldn't be worth the reward....
I have hunted with Bill many times, I just don't believe he would put his good name or crew in this position. Let him have his day in court.
These baiting laws are just an excuse to persecute successful hunters.
Unfortunately, filming and satisfying high profile clients could force a poor decision. I hope it wrong. Seems the bigger The ego gets, so do the bars they have to meet.
Why do these federal cases take 2 years to charge someone from the date of the incident?
Probably to make certain that the baiting is a consistent tjing, from season to season. Not just a one time ocurance. Multiple attempts in one season might throw up flags.
As someone who has dealt with federal courts/prosecutors I can tell you they move at a snails pace, particularly in what would be considered a "low profile" case. Also, the feds, even more than state prosecutors, want a slam dunk case with all the i's dotted and the T's crossed, before they charge it.
