Hunter with poaching cap busted for wrong license

DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Here's some advice for hunters who don't follow the law: Don't wear a hat that promotes breaking it.

During the traditional deer season last month, state conservation officer Jeremy Payne stopped a pickup truck with two hunters in central Michigan's Isabella County.

They were from Maine, and 1 of the hunters was wearing a cap that said, "Registered Maine Poacher."

Payne checked their guns and paperwork and found that the Mainers were illegally hunting with Michigan resident licenses, a savings of more $100 each. The officer later found two deer that had been killed illegally.
