Steaming deer, shots from a golf cart: Mich. conservation officers see some crazy stuff

January 02, 2011

LANSING, Mich. — Did you hear the one about the deer hunter who took shots from a golf cart?

Conservation officers say it’s a true story. The Michigan deer hunting season always has law breakers, and officers report incidents on a state website.

The Department of Natural Resources says a maintenance worker confessed that he was shooting deer at a golf course while sitting in a cart. A loaded shotgun was seized. The location was not disclosed.

Another conservation officer investigating a light in a field discovered a deer carcass that was steaming. The hunter said he had poured boiling water on the deer to wash it out. But the story changed when the hunter admitted he shot it before running to town to get a license.
