Columbia County authorities were called to a Grovetown subdivision Wednesday after a man and his son said they found a large amount of blood on the ground.

The 41-year-old said earlier that evening he and his son saw a burgundy Dodge Ram truck parked near a gate on Sugarcreek Drive that led to an open field and power lines, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office report.

He asked the man inside the truck if he needed help, but the man, who appeared nervous, said he was waiting for a friend.

The father and son left to go home. A short time later, the 18-year-old son returned and found a large amount of blood in the spot where the truck had been parked.

The teen returned home to tell his father, who then called deputies.

All area hospitals and the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office were notified of the situation.

I agree - most likely

I agree - most likely poachers - a loathesome species ranking lower than most other criminals. Instead of calling cops, it often helps to call Georgia DNR's TIP (turn in poachers) hotline, open 24/7. The number is 1-800-241-4113 and its also printed on every Georgia hunting or fishing license, and callers can remain anonymous and also qualify for rewards.

That is why I don't know what

That is why I don't know what to think about new gun silencer laws for hunting. But a poacher don't care anyway.
