Case File  #37   March 2012

On December 1, 2011, Maine Game Warden Tom McKinney received an OGT call from a upset hunter who found a baited deer stand in a piece of woods he had hunted for considerable time over the years. The caller stated he found a ground blind overlooking a pile of grain and apples with a game camera directed toward the bait. The hunter was able to give Warden McKinney good directions to where the poacher was likely parking his vehicle.

The next evening, Warden McKinney went to the area and found a poacher in the blind hunting over the grain and apples. The poacher was summonsed to court for Hunting Deer Overlooking Bait and paid a $200.00 fine.

Thanks go out to the concerned hunter who reporting the signs of poaching.
