- By sentencing them to jail time. (31.58%)
- By giving them a cash fine. (15.79%)
- By banning their hunting and fishing privileges and their ability to buy the necessary licenses. (18.42%)
- By putting them on a probation period. (0.00%)
- There should be some discretion in the penalties depending on the motivations for the poaching incident. (34.21%)
