A Texas judge got creative in sentencing a man convicted of poaching a trophy deer. Read the excerpt from Game Warden Field Notes below. Do you think this would be a good idea in Montana?
A district court judge in Grayson County recently ordered a man convicted of poaching a big white-tailed buck to spend every weekend of hunting season in jail for the next five years. In addition to five years of probation, and over $18,000 in civil restitution penalty, John Walker Drinnon must report to the Grayson County Jail each weekend of deer season starting Dec. 30 for the full term of his deferred judgment period. The 34-year-old from Whitesboro, Texas, is also prohibited from purchasing a hunting license while on probation. Drinnon admitted to killing a 19-point buck with a gross Boone & Crockett score of 202 inches with a rifle (in an archery-only county) while trespassing on private property; a state jail felony. (A photo of Drinnon and the deer can be found here https://tpwd.texas.gov/newsmedia/news_images/?g=grayson_county_big_bucks&i=drinnon_2–.jpg).
