SD - Father, sons face charges of illegal hunting

The Associated Press - Monday, May 28, 2007

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.

A father and two sons who own outdoors businesses in northern South Dakota have been charged with outfitting illegal deer and pheasant hunts near Lake Oahe.

Federal prosecutors leveled the charges against Brad Schilling, 50, and sons Chad Schilling, 31, and Jestin "Jess" Schilling, 28.

According to court documents, prosecutors say the three let out-of-state hunters use their resident hunting tags, told them to take more animals than allowed, arranged for the interstate shipment of trophies and covered up the activity with false records.

They have been charged with violating the Lacey Act, a federal law that governs the preservation of scarce or extinct species. Other charges include falsely labeling wildlife and transporting illegally taken wildlife across state lines.
