From The Lufkin Daily News:

_An Angelina County jury sentenced 35-year-old David Peters [to two years in a state jail] after DNA evidence was used against him in the case.

Assistant District Attorney Dale Summa told the Associated Press on Monday that investigators took DNA from a sample of deer tissue and matched it to DNA from deer blood found on one of Peters’ rifles. They also matched Peters’ DNA to that found on beer cans beneath a hunter’s deer stand, an AP story stated._

The lesson: When poaching, don’t leave your beer cans lying around at the scene.
