Michigan Authorities Seize 24-Point Rack, Charge Hunter
From the Jackson Citizen Patriot:
_Game authorities have seized a record-book deer rack and filed poaching charges against a Horton man. . . .
Christopher James said he shot the buck in a Spring Arbor Township swamp at dusk on Oct. 24, tracked a blood trail part of the night and returned to find the carcass the next morning.
Doubting his claim, conservation officers said they searched the DNR license database to discover James did not buy a deer license until the morning after he shot the buck. . . .
“He lost the buck of a lifetime for the lack of a $15 license,” [a DNR officer] said. _
