Deer poached on property used for youth hunts.

KSAL StaffOctober 27, 2014

A man who leases his land in Pawnee County so children with life-threatening illnesses can hunt says some of the deer are being poached.

Tim Schaller says he was upset earlier this month when he found a poached buck with meat, head and antlers intact. It was at least the fourth deer he’s found poached on the property.

Schaller, of Larned, says the poaching is especially upsetting because the land is used for Life Hunts, which provides the hunts every year for ill children, and the loss of four trophy bucks could hurt the children’s chances of success.

The Wichita Eagle reports this year’s hunt will host a 13-year-old Pennsylvania girl with an inoperable brain tumor and a 13-year-old boy from North Carolina who is fighting cancer.
