Iowa does have a surpus of deer, large deer at that. In the cities they can become very dangerous to drivers. They're not so bad in rural areas. I agree with more hunting of deer in and around urban areas. However I would never agree with poaching anything.
I was involved in a poaching incident once in high school. We were out "road tripping" as we called it one night and everytime we saw eyes in the ditch the driver pulled over and the passenger got out and shot at it. I had no idea there was even a gun in the car until it was being used. My friend ended up shooting a mink and even shot at some farmers cows. He was using a shotgun and it was at a distance so it didnt even phase them but still very dumb. We ended up getting pulled over by the cops around four that morning driving through town (I know we were idiots). They pulled the mink out of the trunk and the three of us that didnt shoot it all pointed our fingers at the other guy. He got his fur bearers license taken away for a few years but still continues to hunt without ethics to this day. Didnt learn a thing. I love the guy. He's one of my best friends but I hate the way he hunts and I dont do it with him.
I think the punishment for the alleged poaching, if true, in this case needs to fit the crime from the universities standpoint. If he took other wrestlers, that he coaches, out with him to commit the crime of poaching, he should be fired...imho. I love Mike Zadick but there is no excuse if this did indeed happen.
