He's already lied on record once....aint no reason to believe him on this.....He's not only a poacher, he's a liar as well. Another animal harvested by some person not disciplined enough to do it the right way...hope they put him in the joint.
[rquote=1510146&tid=105315&author=buckwacker181]It's a shame a world class whitetail had to go down to a criminal. Anyone actually think it will go 190"? Tines aren't long enough to rack up that kind of score if you ask me.[/rquote]
Pictures are really tough to really see how big he actually is. Whatever the score is he is an absolute giant 8 pointer. Hope that dumb SOB gets what he deserves!!
[rquote=1510175&tid=105315&author=Detrhoyt]Okay, I see the gas theft conviction as the only reason for me to even bother giving this guy any thought. He's not allowed over the house because of that. Congrats to him on a heck of a deer, though![/rquote]
Why would you want to congradulate somebody who is in possesion of an illegal deer?
Possession means holding property in oneâ€™s power or the exercise of dominion over property. By having possession one exercises control over something to the exclusion of all others.
The saying â€œpossession is nine points of the lawâ€ is an old common law precept that means one who has physical control or possession over the property is clearly at an advantage or is in a better possession than a person who has no possession over the property. Even if a person is the rightful owner of the property but has no possession over it, the person who is in possession will be in a better position should the property ever be subject to challenge. This is especially true with adverse possession. However mere possession alone does not grant the possessor rights in the property superior to those of the actual owner. This adage â€œpossession is nine tenths of the lawâ€ is not a law but a logical rule of force that has been recognized across ages.
In re Garza, 984 S.W.2d 344, 347 (Tex. App. 1998), Texas court has held that â€œDespite the old saying that "possession is 9/10ths of the law," mere possession and whatever right to the property that comes with mere possession does not grant the possessor rights in the property superior to those of the actual owner. J. CRIBBET, PRINCIPLES OF THE LAW OF PROPERTY 12-13 (1962); R. BOYER, SURVEY OF THE LAW OF PROPERTY 679-80 (1981). In other words, there is a hierarchy of ownership, as reflected both in the common law and Â§ 1.07(35)(a) of the Penal Code. One in possession of chattel has a greater right to it than one who lacks both possession and title. Yet, one who has title maintains a greater right over the chattel than 1) one who simply has possession and 2) one who has neither possession nor claim of ownership. Id. Indeed, it can be said that the title owner has the greatest rights to the property. With that greatest right comes the power to negate the authority of those with lesser right. Similarly, those who stand in the lesser position lack the power to override or negate the rights of the title owner.â€
