New Deer Law

A new bill tightens the law on illegally killing deer in Michigan. 

The bill was passed on Tuesday which includes an additional restitution cost paid by individuals who are convicted of illegal killing, possessing, purchasing or selling of antlered white-tailed deer. The current law states that offenders must pay a thousand-dollar restitution fee... under the new law a convicted person would have to pay an additional thousand plus an extra fee depending on the points of the buck. The law will also make it more difficult to purchase a hunting license again for those who are convicted.
