MI - man pleads guilty to illegal hunting

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. A Wisconsin man has pleaded guilty to hunting illegally in the Upper Peninsula's Iron County.

Forty-four-year-old John Peter Thekan entered his pleas yesterday to two counts each of illegal possession of two deer, hunting deer without a license and using another person's kill tag.

Michigan Department of Natural Resources investigators say the charges involve a 12-point deer and a ten-point deer.

Two suspects were cited for lending deer licenses. Another was charged with aiding illegal deer tagging. All three _ Michigan residents _ face arraignment.

The penalty for illegal possession of deer is a fine of up to one-thousand dollars, five to 90 days in jail, loss of hunting privileges and restitution of one-thousand dollars per deer.
