New laws are in effect regarding deer poaching in Michigan. The DNR announced yesterday that the new laws change the penalties of poaching.
If someone gets caught poaching a deer it's a thousand-dollar fine...and an additional thousand for any antlered deer. Eight to ten point deer adds $500 for each point and eleven or more points, racks up an additional $750 per point. Poachers will also lose their hunting license for a longer period of time. New rules and higher fines are also in place for those who trespass and hunt.
