Three out-of-state men face thousands of dollars in fines and
suspension of their hunting privileges for unlawfully killing deer in
Iowa last year, state Department of Natural Resources officials said.
The agency said a 10-month investigation led to charges against the
New Jersey and Pennsylvania residents.
The DNR said the men hunted in Monroe County in southern Iowa.
Ronald A Hayek, 36, of Towaco, N.J., was charged with seven counts of
making a false claim to obtain resident Iowa licenses, unlawfully taking
a deer and attempting to take a deer by unlawful means. The agency said
he also faces a charge of attempting to take a turkey by unlawful means.
Hayek, who was fined $1,488, faces a three-year suspension of his
Daniel S. Hosaflook, 38, of Verona, Pa., and Donald Hosaflook, 35, of
Delmont, Pa., were each charged with unlawfully taking a deer. They were
each fined $162, and each face one-year suspensions.
The DNR said Hayek allegedly used a Bettendorf address to purchase
resident hunting licenses and deer and turkey tags. He allegedly killed
at least one antlered deer with an illegal license.
Daniel and Donald Hosaflooks were accused of killing antlered deer on
a nonresident antlerless only license.
Conservation officials in New Jersey and Pennsylvania assisted in the
investigation, the DNR said.
If convicted, each man also faces a minimum $4,000 civil fine.
