Michigan man admits he was often drunk while driving around, shooting deer from car

A Michigan man says he was “relieving frustration” by driving around at night and shooting into vacant fields when he illegally shot and abandoned several deer, a Michigan DNR investigation found.

Edward Trout, 29, of Cedar Springs, Michigan, confessed to the DNR that he illegally shot and abandoned multiple deer in Northeast Kent County, with tips on the case dating back to January. Eight tipsters have contacted the DNR’s Report All Poaching hotline, reporting gunfire at night and deer carcasses located on or near properties in Nelson and Spencer townships.
