Michigan hunter sprayed brother's stands with deer repellent, officials say

A Michigan man has admitted to intentionally sabotaging his brother by spraying deer repellent around his hunting stands.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently responded to a complaint of hunter harassment during firearm deer season in Newaygo County. The complainant accused his brother of harassing him while hunting on private land the pair owned together.

DNR Conservation Officer Mike Wells, who investigated the case, examined two SD cards from trail cameras, which showed the brother wearing a backpack sprayer and spraying two hunting stands located on public U.S. Forest Service property, Michigan Live reports.

The DNR collected and tested samples of the liquid sprayed on the stands. The man was reportedly upset because he felt his brother was intentionally cutting off the deer by hunting the public land next to the private camp the pair owned.

According to reports, officer Wells confronted the suspect as he was hunting in his blind. The man confessed to tampering and harassment. He was also found to have been illegally hunting using bait, Michigan Live reports.

If it's any consolation, I've tried Liquid Fence and my neighborhood deer ignored it.

There is already a thread on this. Sibling Rivalry. Pretty silly though.
