State game and fish has slapped a Show Low couple with multiple violations relating to the poaching of a trophy elk and a mule deer.

John Polzin was civilly assessed $16,000. In addition, the Game and Fish Commission revoked Polzin's hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for 10 years.

His wife, Shelly Polzin, is also banned from hunting, fishing and trapping for five years.

The Polzins are also required to successfully complete an Arizona hunter education course prior to having their license privileges restored. The Polzins are the first violators of a new law allowing Arizona Game and Fish to impose tougher penalties on repeat poachers and those who hunt illegally.
