SOLDIER PLEADS GUILTY TO ILLEGAL HUNTING

10 March 2004

LOGAN - A Soldier man gave up his bow and arrows after pleading guilty to illegally taking and possessing deer.

State Conservation Officer David Tierney said in a plea agreement, Billy Ray Custer pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal possession of deer and was ordered to pay $3,294 in fines and damages.

In addition, his weapon was turned over to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and his hunting rights suspended for two years, he said.

Under Iowa law, deer hunters are allowed one deer for each valid license and transportation tag.

Harrison and Monona County Conservation officers arrested Custer last November after observing him retrieve three deer he killed the same day with his bow and arrow.

Tierney said Custer had one valid tag for Monona County, but the deer were killed in Harrison County.

"All three were illegal, but the charge was reduced to two as part of the plea bargain," he said.
