ARDMORE, OK--A new bill to prevent poaching in Oklahoma is on its way to the Governor's desk.

House Bill 2573 left the house yesterday and increases the fine for poaching to a minimum fine of $ 500 and a maximum of $1,500, a drastic difference from the current $50 poaching fine .

The fine can go up to $ 2,500 for second time offenders who also could face 6 months of jail time. The bill mandates that repeat offenders could lose their hunting and fishing license for up to ten years.
