Minnesota men recently lost their hunting privileges for three years
after they were caught shooting and transporting a deer out of season in
December in northwestern Minnesota. Both actions are gross misdemeanors.
Duane Marvin Anderson of Lake Bronson pleaded guilty to shooting a
big-game animal in a closed season in Kittson County and later
transporting the deer.
He was ordered to pay $500 in restitution to the state for the deer,
plus an additional $832 for fines and court costs. As part of his
sentencing, $500 of the fine was stayed for two years as long as he pays
the fine within 90 days and doesn't have any similar violations for two
The gun Anderson used also was forfeited to the state.
Allan Fredrick Kuck of Lake Bronson was fined for his role in
transporting the illegally taken deer. He was ordered to pay $282 of the
$832 fine within 90 days.
If either man has a similar violation in the next two years, he will
pay the rest of his fines and spend 30 days in jail.
