2,000 arrests for deer poaching in Mo.

December 10, 2009 at 01:14 PM

ST. LOUIS (AP) - State conservation agents have made 2,000 arrests statewide for illegal deer poaching this season.
KSDK reports that includes 200 in the St. Louis region.

The Missouri Department of Conservation says 2,000 arrests are typical. But St. Louis-area agent Chris Morrow says there’s been an increase in the number of cases of spotlighting - when poachers shoot deer after shining bright lights at them.

Poachers also are engaging in the illegal activity of shooting deer from the road.

He said agents have found deer left dead with their heads or antlers removed.

In Missouri, cash rewards are offered to anyone who provides information leading to a poaching arrest. Callers to the “Operation Game Thief” tipline can remain anonymous. The number is 1-800-392-1111.

Poachers face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Repeat offenders face suspension of hunting and fishing privileges.

I wonder how many arrests we have in Illinois…should be about double Missouri.

Should be double but I am betting less than 1/2 of Missouri’s work. You have to have gas in your truck to be able to get out and catch them.
