Dating app leads to deer poaching charges

MCINTOSH COUNTY, OK — A dating app led to a woman being charged with poaching a deer.

Oklahoma Game Warden Cannon Harrison was on a dating app when he connected with a woman who said she had just shot a “bigo buck.”

When he asked her for more information, she told him she had gotten the deer by spotlighting and shooting him. Spotlighting is a method of hunting in which bright lights are used to create a literal deer-in-the-headlights effect. It is also illegal to do in Oklahoma.

Harrison also found out that the woman had shot the deer with a gun and not a bow. Rifle hunting season had already ended in Oklahoma.

After getting a photo of the deer from the woman, Harrison found where she lived and charged her.

She pleaded guilty to the crime and has paid multiple fines.
