Current Bill Summary

SCS/SBs 151 & 317 - This act requires individuals to pay restitution to the state for illegally obtained antlered deer intended to be sold. The amount of restitution is dependent upon the certified Boone & Crockett gross score of the antlered deer. Funds collected from this restitution shall be transferred to the state school moneys fund. Landowners are exempt from the act’s provisions provided no part of the deer is removed from the property.

The act creates penalties for persons found guilty of poaching while trespassing. Individuals who commit this crime shall be subject to a fine of $500 in addition to paying restitution to the property owner for property damage resulting in a lower property value. Individuals who do not pay the fine or restitution as ordered may be subject to the revocation or denial of a permit to hunt or fish by the Conservation Commission.

This act is similar to SCS/SBs 665 and 757 (2006).
