  1. Actually it started with your misinterpretation of leaving a carcass on public property (as a carcass not as garbage) and then you introduced the turkey scenarios your friend went through, which Lunatic then replied to. I'm beginning to think you don't understand how laws and law enforcement works. You want to make claims and take a firm position about the laws based on your interpretation (which in some cases may even be correct) but fail to realize your interpretation has ZERO bearing until the point you are standing in front of a judge in a courtroom preferably with a lawyer by your side. Before then, you're subject to an enforcement officer's interpretation (whether police, NJDFW LE, public works official, etc) and their discretion of issuing a summons to penalize you based on their interpretation.
  2. @mazzgolf is just going to eat mergansers from now on...
  3. How did this discussion/point wind up in a topic about discarding a deer carcass?
  4. OK, I think they have what they need if the event arises
  5. OK, I guess that is their choice then. You made your choice, and they made theirs. It may be they don't make that same choice in the future and you'll wind up in court to plead your case.
  6. Looks like you have your court case documentation all worked out already! You don't get to argue the issuance of the summons by NJDFW LE at the time it's issued, you get to argue it in court. In court you can argue law vs regulation and if the judge sides with you, then the rule will be deemed non-binding and I'd imagine the court will subsequently issue a requirement to NJDFW to update their rule (regulations). That's the process in the events of you being issued a summons and going to court and achieving court agreement that your interpretation is correct.
  7. This really isn't complicated. The regulations could say (they don't) you can only use a water gun to hunt with, whereas the laws say you can use other firearms. You're still subject initially to the regulations, as the agency that will enforce hunting with a firearm will be the NJDFW LE (not anyone else). So if you choose to hunt with a 12 gauge shotgun (per the law), then expect (as you should) NJDFW LE to issue you a summons in the event you are caught hunting with a 12 gauge shotgun and violating the NJDFW regulations. At that point you will go to court and present your case regarding laws vs regulations. You may win, you may not...guess it depends on how the court sees it. If you don't want to go to court, then follow the NJDFW regulations and only hunt with a water gun.
  8. OK, not sure what you're intended point is with that excerpt.
  9. Right, that's the process unfortunately if you want to challenge the regulations. It's your choice as to how far you're willing to go and take it. I'm sure a lawyer can help direct you far more than I can.
  10. Nice! That's one heck of a season, you did very well!
  11. OK, then you have that argument in court when LE incorrectly (in your opinion and interpretation of the law) writes you a summons. That's your choice. It's up to you if you want to take that on versus follow the regulations as stated by NJDFW's digest. That is certainly your choice to make.
  12. Ask NJDFW Law Enforcement. Get a written letter stating it if you feel the need. Ultimately, who is going to enforce the law/regulation and issue you a summons to court is where you start. If you don't get issued a summons, then you aren't ever headed to court. The funny part here is you are saying NJDFW and therefore their LE follows their regulations, which may conflict with the law. Yet the "law" doesn't issue you a summons, NJDFW LE does. So I would simply follow the LE guidelines and regulations, since that is what they are going to enforce. If you want to stand on your own legal leg and fight them on their regulations vs the law, that's a different situation. But you are asking which do you follow...well you follow the NJDFW LE regulations and pick a fight in court or with the council (preferably with your own lawyer) if you want to change the NJDFW LE regulations.
  13. Vosker is an example of one cam that does this. @tcook8296 has been using one for deer (although not sure if he changed the modeling). https://www.vosker.com/product/v200-us/
  14. Yes, that can be done as well. AI and machine learning models can be used to do the equivalent of "face detection" but applied to different models (cars, people, cats, dogs, deer, etc). Trailcams are starting to adopt the deer recognition modeling of AI and machine learning.
  15. A large faction of the botnet out there using IoT devices was achieved by running port scanners across IP ranges and trying to identify and use default user/password combinations that manufacturers setup on the devices. Weak firmware policies and unknowing (non-techy) users (average home owners) is the culprit. Definitely a good rule of thumb to look at the security setup on any device and set/customize the password. In general, everywhere and everything you use, if it supports 2 Factor Authentication, use it. The main issue is most users want plug and play convenience (understandable), so I think the manufacturers should really build based on that expectation and force users to go through an explicit security setup vs just plugging in and working. Most have started to move towards this and are closing the gaps of the flaws such as default user/password combinations.
  16. Your hunting license is irrelevant if you are hunting out of season. There is no license involved. However, they could certainly have revoked his hunting privileges for N years moving forward (i.e. the next applicable valid hunting season onward). He didn't already lose it (have it revoked).
  17. With the way technology is today, you should operate assuming anything you have connected to an external network is no longer private. It's the case with your iPhones and Android phones today (see yesterday's news about Apple and Google verifying there is no end to end encryption of your cloud based backups). In the case of network devices (IoT or otherwise), your trust is only as far as the company that built them (and who they paid to build them). Lots of possible vulnerabilities, especially from manufacturers that don't specialize in security (hence why so many devices are easily hackable). Go wired and local DVR for security cameras, especially anything interior. If you don't care who sees it or when (whether you know or not), then you can go wireless and cloud based for the convenience of setup. Most homeowners aren't targets of sophisticated hacking efforts to gain entry or spoof video feeds, but peace of mind goes a long way.
  18. Indeed, always question and fight the law. Guilty people do it, and certainly innocent people should. Of course ignorance is no excuse, but sometimes laws vs regulations are murky and that can be defended legally. As such, you too can hunt out of season, trespass and poach a buck and face nothing more than a fine.
  19. So just to be clear, your friend who unknowingly hunted within 300' of a gut pile while bear hunting lost his license for 5 years BUT the guy who got caught this past summer by wardens straddled on top of a buck, cutting it's head off before the season even opened while also trespassing and hunting illegally out of season got nothing but a fine? What am I missing here?
  20. That Instagram post seems incorrect as Colliers Mills WMA (in central NJ) does allow centerfire now.
  21. Nice one! Congrats Ryan!
  22. Football Sunday. So less people there who are watching the games. Last few weekends has been light. 1-4 trucks parked midday when I've been through.
  23. Yep 100 yards. Has benches. Big backstop
