    I DID NOT POST THIS!!!

    I gave someone a key to my shop who I thought I could trust. He has done things for me (take in packages etc.) when I wasn't around. I have taken his key and informed him that he can no longer use my computer. Apparently he had done some "pre-gaming" before he went out last night and thought it would be "funny" to post a scenario on here as I left this open in a tab. He said he didn't know it would show up under my profile. He said he's used other forums before and thought you had to sign your name when it posted or it would just go in as "anonymous". Needless to say I made sure he knew how upset I was.

    I would like to apologize to the owners, moderators, and members of the ocdo community. I grew up in the country and had to get many an animal out of a shed. We would always open the door and run. Every animal ever in the shed would run out and run away. I've never had to draw on any animal caught in my shed as they are always more afraid of us then we are of them.

    Once again, I apologize to the entire ocdo community and hope that this will not bring any negative perspective to myself or ocdo. I assure you something like this will not happen again. I will make sure I log out every time I leave the computer. Thank you for reading this.

    Not to criticize the guys on the ground, but I can't quite figure why one would blast a vulture. I know they are really ugly and have a revolting diet, but I didn't know they were particularly dangerous.

    Is there some danger of which I was unaware?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Those birds are a protected species in every state in the United States, I wouldn't do too much bragging if I were you .



    They are also harmless other than a little barf when flying overhead, that was a stupid shoot !

    I seriously doubt confessing to this type of crime on the internet is going to result to being criminally charged.

    I've been on many forums, and have seem saying in jest that they just murdered a man. You can't really take much said on the internet with more than a grain of salt, unless there's evidence in the real world that actually relates to what was said, or you're talking about preparing a major crime, such as a robbery, rape, murder, bomb threat, etc etc.

    I guarantee anyone can come on here and say they just sold their neighbor a pound of marijuana and cocaine, or that they just got away with CCing on U.S. Property, or even that they "rear ended" someone in the parking lot and drove away, and not jack will happen.

    I know about vultures and theyare generally laid back. It was probably hissing due to being cornered and confused. I'd have backed up and left the door open to let it leave. The hissing IS a little weird though. I've caught vultures in traps before by accident and when I'd let them go they played dead like possums. No aggression at all, no vulture puke. Maybe there was a baby vulture around somewhere nearby?

    Yes, they are federally protected, like eagles, hawks, and owls. You 2 would have been in somedoodoo had a game cop seen that.

    I like vultures, they clean my dead animal messes up LOL. Same goes for possums. I don't like possums in my traps though.

    Everything that has ever been said by the forum owners is that OCDO does not condone breaking any laws, whether firearms related or not.

    There are many situations that have been posted throughout this forum where internet postings have been used against the poster. Why do you think that attorneys advise their clients to ****?

    I cannot and do not accept lightly such references as I read here . We are law abiding citizens and expect others here to be also. End of story.

    The buddy was protected by law when he shot an animal on his own property.

    Here in my state, you would not have been protected by the same law.

    However, IMO, that was a bad shoot and you need to examine the reasons you shot ... fear and ignorance of the animalseemed to be short-circuiting your logical thinking. You can lessen fear with research and knowledge.

    I would imagine you and your buddy are less than 30 years old and don't have a whole lot of experience to draw upon. Most wild animals are going to use a theat mechanism in their effort to escape, and if you simply get out of the way, they will leave on their own. This is not meant to downplay the danger of predators and larger prey species.

    And as for whether or not you can be charged after the fact because you posted on the internet ... well, maybe this will give you pause http://www.okshooters.com/forums/sho...uck&page=4

    Agree with many of the above posts.

    Don't shoot an animal unless you are going to eat it or use it in some sort of way or it is causingor about to cause damage.The only exception to the rule is cats; shoot cats anytime.

    Cornered animals do get scared and they make scary sounds to frighten you so you will just leave them alone.

    Looks to me someone wanted a chance to use their guns and brag about it. IMHOP
    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    I guess that's the difference between no crime and "stopping" a crime in progress. I prefer no crime.

    When something that big and ugly starts moving towards you "hissing" I think you'd probably pull the trigger too...

    I'd bein a lot of pain if I shot my cats right now, especially considering over which part of my anatomy one is laying at the moment.:shock:

    This thread reminds me of the fellow that was able to talk his way out of killing and eating a Spotted Owl due to ignorance of it being a protected species. The judge asked, by the way how did it taste? The fellow said, very similar to a Bald Eagle or Ivory Billed Woodpecker.

    Thank you for being kind. I explained to him that what he did would not just effect me and all my posts here, but the open carry movement and gun owners in general. These are not things that I take lightly. There is a reason I have chosen to fight for this cause and I (and the rest of us) can not afford for some short sighted person making stupid statements or posts. We walk on a thin line as it is in this society. I'm just sorry that it was through my account that a dumb post was made. Again, it was my fault for not logging out. I hope everyone will be understanding.

    Of course they can. My point is, in most cases, they would not choose to look in to such an event if Joe Blow just posted "I just sold some coke to my neighbor last night." Or "I've got a stash that I'm about to light up". I just gave my opinion. It doesn't matter a whole lot to me anyway, because I don't come online and start talking about illegal activities.

    The problem would be if someone were charged with a crime and if the DA thought there was intent to be mined here, he just might look.

    I don't play games, or post info that I wouldn't discuss right in my own home or with my LEO acquaintances, or even my own mother, if that kind of chatter is your style, or you think it won't be taken seriously by some web surfer somewhere, then BS. away, someday someone will be checking in on you. when folks cross the narrow line form reasonable to uncontrollable, and have a serious infraction of the law, usually the P.C. is the first item confiscated from their home/possession, thenevery post you ever made on that particular machine is at the disposal ofa crime investigating P.D. hacker.. Nothing is a secret on a P.C.
