Wild life poaching continues to be a problem for the Kentucky and Tennessee Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Agencies.
Sergeant James Nason of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Agency, Officer Dale Grandstaff and Officer Mike Murdock of Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency conducted a joint investigation recently and confiscated a prized deer carcass, a deer stand and a compound bow after they received a tip about two people, who allegedly hunted a deer without a license.
Sergeant Nason of Pembroke determined on Monday two men from Springfield, Tennessee conspired to hunt deer illegally in Christian County, which resulted in the illegal harvest of a trophy buck.
According to Sergeant Nason poaching wild life happens too often in Christian County and he says illegal deer hunting is a serious criminal offense.
The deer was reportedly hunted in the area of Stripped Bridge Road and both men were cited to appear in court for non-resident hunting without licenses and permits, illegal use of a license and falsely reporting an incident.
