Chillicothe, OH - Two men convicted of the illegal taking of white-tailed deer have been ordered to pay restitution of $12,988 according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

The Honorable Judge Thomas E. Bunch presided and assistant law director Michele Route prosecuted today over the first case in the State involving white-tailed deer restitution under Ohio
's revised restitution law. The law went into effect March 2008 and allows the Ohio Division of Wildlife to seek an increased recovery value on all illegally harvested wildlife.

Cory A. Posey, 19, of South Salem
has pled guilty to charges of taking a deer with a rifle, deterring an officer, taking a deer after hours, and taking more than one buck in a license year. Posey will pay $100 in fines, additional court costs, and $6,494 in restitution. He will serve 200 hours of community service, five years of community control and hunting privileges suspended for five years.

Kyle E. Kruger, 20, of Washington Court House has pled guilty to charges of spotlighting, deterring an officer, and aiding an individual in the unlawful taking of a wild animal. Kruger will pay $100 in fines, additional court costs, and $6,494 in restitution. He will serve 200 hours of community service, five years of community control and hunting privileges suspended for five years.

In addition to fines, restitution, license suspension and community service, the deer, firearms, and all other equipment used in the illegal activities were ordered forfeit. All venison was forfeited and will be donated to a local food pantry.

Editor's Note on Restitution:The recovery value for individual white-tailed deer is derived from the formula listed in 1531.201 of the Ohio Revised Code. The value is determined by measuring the antlers and using the following formula plus the value derived for wildlife. The formula for white tailed deer will be applied to all individuals whose gross score exceeds 125 Boone and Crockett (B&C) inches. The formula is:

Recovery Value = ((gross score - 100)2 x $1.65) + the value derived in the Wildlife Value Formula ($500 as of 3/08).

Its good to see a steep fine but not sure the fine should be higher for a bigger buck. Whats the difference in poaching that big buck or a spike. If they started the fine at $10,000 for any deer and went up based on the size of the deer that would be cool.

I Hope So.
From What People Are Talking About Around Here, The Officer Seen Them Spotlighting Deer From The Road, And When He Pulled Them Over They Already Had That Buck In The Bag. I Guess Killing That One Wasn't Enough Fun For Them. In My Opinion, They Shouldn't Be Allowed To Hunt For Life.

I'm glad to see that fines are becoming steeper but they only have their hunting privileges taken away for 5 years. Personally they should be taken away for life. But that won't stop them looks like not hunting legally is their thing. I'm sure they have other guns maybe next time they will just be more watchful for the DNR truck.
