Any animal killed by means said to be illegal in the state, county, or GMU being hunted.

As stewards of the land, we should all hold ourselves to a higher standard than what a dictionary might define as poaching.

Whatever my state's DNR considers poaching, pretty black and white.

What I consider to be a legal poach is very different than what I consider immoral or unjustifiable poaching. I think that when you kill an animal then waste it, that is poaching whether done legally or not.

Mine is---

My personal definition would be, taking game contrary to any regulation that applies to that game. Anyone convicted of any kind of poaching should loose their right to hunt in all states.

Poaching to me is the act of willful violation of the law. Like hunting out of season, hunting at night with a spotlight, market hunting, and shooting from a vehicle from the road. In fact I would also include trespassing because it is a willful act because you knew you were not allow to hunt or fish that property. Everything else is just a wildlife code violation, similar to a speeding ticket violation. You start out legaly hunting and in the course of hunting you decisions lead you to a violation. But when your action startout as illegal action from the start then it is willful.

Poaching in our state is as fallows .To attempt to take or to take a game or nongame animals in violation of any game in violation or durring the commison of violating of any game laws ! I.E. you are a poacher if you break any game laws while hunting !:) I agree with this as well.

It is the function of human (man made) defined laws. If you deviate from what the law says then you are poaching in the eyes of human or I should say man made law.

I think poaching would be to harvest an animal outside of the posted state rules for havesting said animal.

Trespassin is fine. I shoot trespassers. Warning shot of course, not my fault if he runs infront of it.:D

Hunting during a closed season-poaching.
Exceeding the legal bag limits-poaching.
Tresspassing- poaching
Filling someone else's tag (where not legal)- poaching
Spotlighting, road hunting, - POACHING

Out of season and/or prescribed hours (when blatant; +/- 5 or 10 minutes is hard to call sometimes) and trespassing/stealing game is not only poaching as a legal violation but a severe breach of ethics. Honest mistakes like 13 doves in your bag instead of 12 because you lost count isn't poaching to me, nor are nitpicky details that are of technical and on paper but not moral nature.
