There’s a good rule of thumb that’ll keep you from getting into trouble with the authorities in any situation throughout your life — don’t do it if it’s illegal. It’s that simple. An Indiana man found out just how simple it could’ve been when it was discovered he poached a buck and hid it in his freezer.

Indiana Conservation Officers are reporting that a Dubois County man has been convicted of illegally taking what most hunters would consider a buck of a lifetime. 

Mark Gill, age 56, of Holland, harvested a non-typical 20 point buck with more than 200 inches of antler during the 2016 season after already taking a buck earlier that archery season. This violated the state of Indiana’s one-buck rule. 

As part of his plea agreement with the Dubois County Prosecutor’s office Gill’s hunting license privileges will be suspended for a period of two years, he will serve 100 hours of community service, be on probation for 540 days and pay $741 in fines and court costs including a $500 replacement fee.
