Look, I'm all for punishment but we really need to stop and think about some things. A felony? Really? One critter, it's meat was used. Not 100's shot for profit, meat rotting in fields or anything like that. It used to be that a felony was reserved for the most serious infractions against our communities. You lose guns rights (SD rights) and you lose voting rights. But all over one critter? Give em a fine, take away their jobs, temporarily take away their hunting rights and send em on there way.
Punishment should fit the crime and in no way does felony and this crime belong in the same sentence.
