- By giving them a cash fine. (12.12%)
- By banning their hunting and fishing privileges and their ability to buy the necessary licenses. (16.16%)
- By putting them on a probation period. (1.01%)
- There should be some discretion in the penalties depending on the motivations for the poaching incident. (34.34%)
