ST. PAUL - Troy Reinke may have killed a record-setting buck last month in southeastern Minnesota, but Goodhue County prosecutors on Thursday said that his actions amounted to poaching.

The Cannon Falls man was charged with 13 counts, including gross over-limits of wild animals, after allegedly shooting the deer without a license or tags. The charges carry a maximum penalty of more than five years in a jail and a $19,000 fine.
