New State Law on Poaching Bucks

New state laws designed to deter poaching of antlered bucks, especially those with trophy-sized racks, and to reduce recreational trespass are now in effect in Michigan. The Department of Natural Resources says the new laws make several changes to the fines and restitution payments for poaching deer, including a progressive penalty system based on the number of points on its antlers. As an example, illegally killing a 10-point buck in Michigan will now result in a $7,000 restitution plus fines and court costs. Poachers also now face stronger penalties related to hunting privileges.
