NEW YORK MILLS (KBRF) - A New York Mills husband and wife are facing charges for illegally taking a deer without a license.
Twenty-six-year-old Michael Jay Davis is charged in Otter Tail County District Court with felon in possession of a firearm and misdemeanor hunting deer without a license. His wife, 25-year-old Emilie Debera Amanda Davis, is cited for misdemeanor hunting deer without a license.
A tip to the “Turn in Poachers” program led to an investigation. The Minnesota DNR allegedly determined that the deer the couple took at a family farm north of New York Mills was taken in early November last year, with Emilie tagging the deer, then getting a license after the fact.
Michael was not supposed to be hunting at all, and was not allowed to have a firearm. He had been ordered to not possess firearms or ammunition due to past court cases involving terroristic threats and burglary.
A complaint warrant was filed February 27th. Michael was arrested on the warrant today and was expected to make his first court appearance on the charges. Emilie was cited for her crime January 23rd and a late notice was mailed to her Tuesday.
