LANSING, MI (WLNS) - A new state law increases the fines that poachers will pay for shooting and killing a deer out of season, especially those with trophy-sized racks.

The new system includes a $1,000 fine for poaching any deer, plus $500 for each point on a 8 to 10 point buck.

Poachers will also have to pay $750 for each point on a buck with 11 or more points.
