WI - California man pleads guilty to hunting illegally in Wisconsin

Associated Press - March 25, 2008

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A federal judge in Los Angeles has barred a man from hunting after he pleaded guilty to illegally moving antlers from Wisconsin deer across state lines.

Authorities say 34-year-old Joshua Whittaker of Corona, California, along with a companion and a guide from Blue Rivers Outfitters shined deer in Richland County in November 2004.

The guide shipped antlers taken from bucks Whittaker and his friend shot during the outings back to Whittaker's California construction business.

Federal wildlife officials say more than 50 people from around the country have been convicted in connection with illegal hunts that Blue River Outfitters set up.
