Earlier this month, a father and son in Mondovi, Wis., were found guilty of poaching as many as 40 deer, many of which were left to rot in the field, since last season.

“When deer are shot for the thrill of it and left to lie, that strikes a real chord with people,” says Bob Jumbeck, a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources game warden.

The father was sentenced to 45 days in jail, 100 hours of community service, and a $3,700 fine. He will be denied hunting privileges for six years, as well. The son is a minor so the penalty is not available to the public.
