A man who found a deer along the side of the road, took it for the meat and got the head mounted, has to give up the head to the DNR. The court decided this because he never got a permit for the animal. The Court of Appeals overturned a decision by Racine County judge Allan Torhorst to fine John Longo a dollar and order him to turn over the head to the DNR upon request. He then set a time limit for that request. The State Appeals said the judge made a mistake by setting the time limit. The Appeals Court agreed, and ordered Longo to surrender the deer head to the DNR without further delay. Longo by the way, did not respond to the appeal, giving up his right to fight the state's claim. Its unknown at this point just when the DNR will get its head case straight.
