Minnesota Poacher Kills Trophy Buck

© By Othmar Vohringer

Poaching is not common but it does happen every year and each time I read about it, it makes me angry and upset. It’s no different with this story from Minnesota.

According to a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources press release officers recently seized a record-book deer rack and filed poaching charges against a Cannon Falls man.

The photo shows DNR Conservation Officer Tyler Quandt with the confiscated deer rack of the poached 8-point buck, with a 185 green score. Reinke, the poacher, has to pay $1,000 restitution and also faces other fines and court costs, and could have his hunting privileges revoked for three years if convicted. A trial date has not been set.

Poachers should get the maximum penalty allowed in my opinion.
