WI - Judge Fined For Hunting Violation

Calumet County Judge Fined For Hunting Violation

CHILTON (AP) - Calumet County Circuit Judge Donald Poppy calls it a stupid mistake.

He's talking about a hunting violation in Montana last fall that cost him just under $1,200 in fines. Poppy was accused of possessing two deer when he had a license for only one.

An anonymous caller from Montana told The Post-Crescent of Appleton about the violation, and Poppy confirmed it when contacted by the newspaper.

Poppy said he was hunting in the northeast corner of Montana when the violation occurred November 14. He says he didn't contest it.

Court records show the 59-year-old judge was fined $135 for failure to tag a mule buck shot on Dawn Ranch in Montana, and $1,035 for killing more than one deer without authorization.

Poppy says the violation won't have any impact on his judgeship or Wisconsin hunting rights.
