Outfitter charged
« on: January 19, 2019, 08:17:04 AM »
 I see a member of the other form has been charged with 45 violations. Phil Cahoon aka (Nube) made the CBC news with his outfitting company. I see arrogance finally caught up with him.

         I guess time will tell, everyone has the right to a fair trial.

         Sure don' t look good though, that's a lot of charges to walk away squeaky clean from.

         I remember posting something on here related to some whitetail pics he had posted up, pretty impressive collection.  Was wondering if he had some advice to give on whitetails.  Response was something like "horseshoes and rolling the window down fast enough."  Thought he was kidding but maybe not lol...

 If you looked close at his live pics he was baiting them to get pics. Once you get an animal used to coming to bait and just because you take the bait away before hunting season doesn’t mean the animals will leave the area. They will still come check for food. Then there are all the rams he shot and bragged about carrying nothing more then binos, rifle and a granola bar makes one wonder how legitimate the rams are as well!

   This will burn a lot of asses on AO , a lot of those Johnny
    know nothings who cheer leaded Phil , are pretty MIA ....
    I sorta would like to be on there only to rub some smug
    Little faces in it . I'm out of fake names , my last  one
    Robtakeahike much to my surprise was picked up on
     pretty quick ..r
      Revenge is mine says the lord , that's why I'm sending in
       F&W ... ;D

      Update .nApparently according to APOS director , they expect
        their members to break the law.
         I would be expect  0 zero tolerance in that area....
         
           There is a FB page Alberta Waterfowl Addicts ,
             They aren't letting up on old Phil , front page news ...

Not a surprise at all, I new his SA attitude and shady ethics would get him one day. I once told him he would be the poster boy for APOS one day as they seem to like and condone guides that break the law.

And this guy is worshipped on AO?  Apparently, a business that receives government funds for their publication of government documents instructing lawful citizens on how to follow the laws of hunting and fishing.

You know it's one thing to shoot at game 5 mins before or after legal light, it's one thing to even drop a bale in the corner of a field. If it's done for personal use and doesn't get carried away I won't condem anyone. But when it's  done with such blatant disregard, when its done for profit only, when the rules are broken so one can get on the Internet and brag about how great they are, then it's crossed the line.

I went over to the BS site just to have a look at the charges. By the looks of what he's been charged with it's  quite extensive, I don't think it's something that really even needs to be discussed the authorities wouldn't waste their time this day and age charging someone unless they had the evidence, it's just the way thing are done now. As I recal Nube would be considered one of the so called top hunters on that site I also recall another top gun on that site being charged with a bunch of stuff a couple years back, some of the long time users remember he came over and attacked me on here as well, even went so far as getting a hold of my personal cell number and threatened me. It seems that these so called top guns have no issue breaking th law in order to pump up their status. Unreal how important they think they are, everyone wants to be a star I guess. Personley because of their well known status as outfitters and so called record book status i think examples should be set and a life time ban on hunting should be in place for these types of people.

You know what else is funny, a good number of us that have been banned from that site were banned because at times we would call out some of those poster boys on BS statements they made, we would call them out for their holier than thou attitude and get in squabbles with them and the site mods always stood up for their poster boys. I guess some of us could always see through the bull shit lol.

No I wasn't thinking of him, wasn't even aware he was another one that has been charged. I forget his name it's not important anyways at this point.

I know it's not good to convict someone until the charges have been tryed but we all know how these things play out. The F&G aren't going to charge someone unless they darn well know it's going on, they don't make this stuff up. What they end up being charged with usually ends up relying more on how good of a lawyer they can afford and what type of plea bargain the can come up with, not whether or not the laws were actually broken.

One charge gives a guy the benefit of the doubt. A string of them and you know something is wrong. Wonder how long this guy been playing the game and still adding his wisdom to the outdoor sportsman world. With so many guides and outfitters been charged these days you gotta wonder. Big clean up needed in the profession for me to respect this organization.

I must admit that while yes he was fairly arrogant, my dealings with him have always been positive.  That being said, it was just discussing some pronghorn hunts in new mexico and I bought a few furs off of him.  Looks like I will have to find someone new to get another fisher and marten hide from lol

He is doing great. 
He is on the Board of Directors for APOS now.
His son just bought out Winefred Lake Lodge too I heard.
They have done very well for themselves.
Those poaching convictions did very little to curb his success.
We have a greed with which we have agreed...
Society, you're a crazy breed.
I hope you're not lonely without me.

To my knowledge APOS has never punished or penalized even one of their members who were charged with wildlife offenses. A year or so again, when they had their last elections and the members had a chance to put in a new President they chose to elect another member who has been convicted of wildlife offenses..............so the BS continues.

I am sure there are some great outfitters in APOS to bad they don't have the balls to step up and get these criminals out of the organization. The government must step in and take control of this organization. For a province that has some of the best hunting opportunities in the world it is embarrassing and infuriating to  be represented by such scum to the hunters of the world coming here to hunt.
