WASHBURN, N.D. - A Georgia hunting guide and dog trainer has lost his
hunting and trapping privileges for 12 years and has been ordered to pay
nearly $9,000 for breaking state wildlife laws.
Ferris "Bo" Taylor, of Pavo, Ga., was sentenced Wednesday in McLean
County on misdemeanor charges of guiding without a license, exceeding
the waterfowl possession limit, illegal possession of hen pheasants and
misrepresentation in applying for a North Dakota hunting license.
State game warden Ken Skuza and warden supervisor Daryl Kleyer said
earlier that an October search of a Douglas-area farm owned by Taylor
turned up 351 whole ducks in freezers and three hen pheasants.
Authorities also said Taylor falsely claimed to be a North Dakota
resident in applying for a license.
The hunting and trapping restrictions in Taylor's sentence will
extend to other states, including his home state, authorities said.
He was ordered to pay $8,775 to state Game and Fish Department
Judge Bruce Haskell also ordered the suspension of Taylor's dog
training privileges in North Dakota for 12 years, and put him on
