A major hit to your reputation as a guide if not criminal charges.
A major hit to your outdoor brand.
A lifetime of being an above board outfitter and member of elk committee, erased(possibly) because it paid good.
While I agree hunting an animal you have a tag for is fully legal, sometimes being legal, and being smart aren't the same. Unfortunately, I've read Berry's response, and while it is stand up and accountable, I didn't read "I absolutely was not on the wrong unit"...... Which still floors me that paid outfitters knew where the bull was, but didn't know where the boundary line was.
And yeah, if I was paying a CWMU and something similar happened, I press charges too.
