A 45-year-old Lebanon man has been charged with poaching deer with a gun he wasn't legally supposed to own because he's a felon.

The Lebanon Daily Record (http://bit.ly/10vl4R0 ) reports that John Edward McGinnis III faces felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm.

McGinnis is a felon because he was convicted in 1998 of possession of a controlled substance.

McGinnis is jailed in Laclede County on a $150,000 cash-only bond. No court dates have been set. His attorney didn't immediately return a phone call.
