The new mexico senate has approved tough penalties for poaching of trophy elk and other big game... The proposal lets the state game commission suspend or revoke someone's hunting or fishing privileges for more than three years, which is the current limit for violations. Supporters say it's possible a hunter could be banned for life in new mexico for the worst game violations. democratic senator george munoz said monday the measure is aimed at "thrill killers" who shoot big game just for the heads and antlers, and leave the meat to rot. The legislation cleared the senate on a 28 to 10 vote on monday, and now goes to the house.
