A Chippewa County man is losing his hunting privileges for life for poaching wolves and bald eagles.

Kurt Duncan faced 125 wildlife crimes for poaching numerous animals, including 18 gray wolves.

He was sentenced in Chippewa County under a plea agreement and will serve 90 days in jail, as well as 18 to 24 months on probation.

Duncan was charged with three counts of illegal possession of wolves and bald eagles, as well as one count of illegal commercialization of a wolf.

Duncan also lost hunting privileges in 48 states and must also hand over all firearms and snares.

Was this stiff enough for this guy? No fines mentioned in news release.

I thought some people were saying wolves were a problem and now they hate this guy for doing something about it. I think the punishment is good, heck he lost his guns thats worse then any jail time or fine.

No, what would be worse if the fine was so large that he had to sell his guns to pay his fine.

too stiff. wolves and eagles both need thinned out. need to change the regs on them

It doesn't matter what we think of wolves or eagles.

The law is the law and the law says we can't kill them. Simple.

Please let me know if I need to dumb this down further.

He should be moving to those other two states. It'll ruin his life as he knows it where he's at now. Learn his lesson, pay his debt, and start a new in a new location.

It's not the idea that there are to many, it's the idea of doing it at all that needs to be corrected !

If the sentence is not stiff enough to make others think about their loss it just keeps happening. Just look at Chicago with their murder rate, its in orbit, because these miscreants know nothing will happen to them !!

Same with poachers it's difficult as get out to track them down with out any witness's let alone make them cry for doing it, but take away everything that was involved doing it then others may think twice about giving it a go !!

Let the landowners decide the punishment. They're who feeds them. The State claims ownership of all the deer here, gets all the license fees, all the fines, yet the private landowners provide food and shelter. Do they get reimbursed for crop damage? Heck no. It's not right.

What about the black eyes it gives law abiding hunters and trappers? This isn't just an err in judgement, 125 game law violations, that is a whole butt load of judgement errs

I don't think a poacher should be housed with rapists and murderers. He killed some animals. Do you want our taxes to pay for a long term jail sentence?

On the other hand, I wouldn't want him living around where I live.

What this guy got caught doing has absolutely nothing to do with legal hunters and trappers. Wolves, even if only because of an AR lawsuit, are back on the Federal Endangered list in our area. This dipstick wasn't doing any of us any favors with his wink-at-the-law horse crap. It will be used against us all. I hope they scare the living stuff out of anyone thinking about doing the same thing. As for him moving to one of the only two states that aren't part of the Wildlife Violator Compact....good riddance, hope he enjoys Massachusetts or Hawaii. We law abiding Michigan sportsmen will not miss him.

They didn't actually say that, just that they confiscated the guns he had, but it looks like it could be felony charges and if so, your assumption would be correct.
