Noted with frustration, because they will never do their job, and punish these poachers...personally I think the poachers should receive the death penality...

You already know my position on this, but here's an idea..why not put a gigantic bounty on the heads of all poachers?
Maybe then these slacker game wardens would wake up and do their jobs...hell, offer it to civilians as well!

Noted - punish the poachers - that's a bloody laugh - the only way they should be punished is to be hacked to death themselves. At least we will rid the earth of them slowly but surely.
