Poachers Busted in NE MN

Three individuals face multiple charges for allegedly illegally taking deer in northeastern Minnesota.

A conservation officer with the DNR and a Tribal Band game warden were contacted shortly after two men and a woman registered a deer at a convenience store in Virginia on Oct. 12. The caller noticed a large amount of blood in the back of a vehicle owned by one of the suspects. One of the individuals was overheard bragging about shooting the deer from the truck with a crossbow.

The investigation uncovered illegal party hunting, lending/borrowing licenses, failure to register big game animals, and illegal taking of three deer. Fine and restitution amount total nearly $2,800 with other charges possible.

Formal changes will be filed against the three suspects shortly with the St. Louis County attorney’s office.
