Rushford man accused of illegally taking trophy buck


Fri, Dec 14th, 2012
Posted in All Police Reports

The Houston County Sheriff's Department, acting on a report of a stolen trophy Whitetail buck from a deer farm in rural Houston, is proceeding with a formal investigation of a 19-year old Rushford man.

The 19-year-old is suspected of illegally entering a deer pen at 2:30 am last Thursday, December 8, and shooting the buck with a bow and arrow. He allegedly then cut a hole in the game farm's fence and dragged the large buck out before returning to his parent's house and apparently registering it with the DNR. Local law enforcement conducted interviews at the suspect's residence following evidence.

The 21-point trophy buck is near world record size and had a Boone & Crockett green score of 212. The buck was just behind the current world-record buck at 213 5/8.

According to an interview of the game farm owner, conducted by WCCO-TV, Channel 4, the 3-year old buck was the result of selective genetics and breeding. Two other deer, from the pen of 24, are also missing. The public is encouraged to contact the Houston County Sheriff's Department if they have any information on the missing deer, which have yellow ear tags.

The case is still under investigation and there are currently no formal charges against Jackson. Charges could be filed as early as today.

The suspect could be charge with violating Minnesota's Outdoor Recreation Trespass Laws through theft and destruction of private property, rather than poaching because the buck was in a penned facility. Civil penalties for the case would be $50 since it is a first-time violation. A subsequent second violation within a three-year period receives a $200 fine and a third violation a $500 fine and loss of license and every registration.

Criminal penalties are at least a misdemeanor for violation of the law. It becomes a gross misdemeanor to knowingly disregard trespass signs. Anyone convicted of a gross misdemeanor violation will have the applicable license and registration revoked and will have all hunting privileges suspended for two years.
