    So they didn’t commit a crime? What’s the deal? Wonder whose property they will think they can walk off with next…

    The media acted like sheep reporting something that never happened. The media/ so called Journalist must all read the same wire, believe what they read and report it without verifying it. Just like the weather reporters. Read what NOAA writes, and then report it as there own

    Those 2 guys look stoned to the bejesus!

    Who would pay half a million dollars for antlers? I wouldnt pay $50 for the antlers if the elk was still attached to them and alive. Demonstrates the wealth inequities of America rather well.
