Jury convicts man who said he didn’t need license to hunt deer

ONTONAGON, Mich. — It didn’t take a jury much time to decide the case of an Upper Peninsula man who was hunting deer without a license.

Ron Ehinger of Ontonagon County claimed he didn’t need a license based on the “laws of nature.” The Daily Globe in Ironwood reports that a jury needed just 10 minutes to determine that the laws of Michigan applied instead.

The 68-year-old Ehinger was convicted of two counts of taking a buck with eight antler points or more. He could be ordered to pay thousands of dollars in penalties.
