Five Hunters Charged in Deer Poaching Case

November 7, 2010

WSIL -- A five month long investigation leads to charges against five men for poaching deer.

The investigation was conducted by Illinois Department of Natural Resources
(IDNR) Conservation Police with the assistance of conservation officers in Michigan and Indiana.

The five hunters, from Illinois and Michigan, have been charged with more than 40 wildlife violations involving 31 whitetail deer. The largest buck, taken in Cook County, was a large non-typical deer valued at $25,000.

"This is yet another example of the outstanding efforts made by the dedicated officers and staff within the IDNR Conservation Police," said Illinois Department of Natural Resources Director Marc Miller. "No matter what the season, Conservation Police are out there everyday watching, investigating and arresting those who break the law in an effort to protect the sport for the majority of outdoorsmen and women who choose to follow the law."

Additional charges are pending. If you have information about illegal hunting, you're asked to call the IDNR Target Illinois Poacher Hotline at 1-877-2DNRLAW (1-877-236-7529).
