Calumet County Judge Fined For Hunting Violation
CHILTON (AP) - Calumet County Circuit Judge Donald Poppy calls it
a stupid mistake.
He's talking about a hunting violation in Montana last fall that
cost him just under $1,200 in fines. Poppy was accused of possessing
two deer when he had a license for only one.
An anonymous caller from Montana told The Post-Crescent of
Appleton about the violation, and Poppy confirmed it when contacted
by the newspaper.
Poppy said he was hunting in the northeast corner of Montana when
the violation occurred November 14. He says he didn't contest it.
Court records show the 59-year-old judge was fined $135 for
failure to tag a mule buck shot on Dawn Ranch in Montana, and $1,035
for killing more than one deer without authorization.
Poppy says the violation won't have any impact on his judgeship
or Wisconsin hunting rights.
