DES MOINES, Iowa
A Tennessee man has pleaded guilty to illegally hunting deer in Iowa.
Officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources say Theodore
Davis of Clinton, Tenn., pleaded guilty to six counts and was ordered to
pay $5,000 to an anti-poaching group and $15,000 in liquidated damages.
Davis also lost his hunting privileges for three years in Iowa and 25
other states, including Tennessee.
Authorities say Davis illegally claimed he was a resident of Iowa
using the address of a couple who live in Mondamin (Mahn-DAY'-min) Iowa.
Officials say the couple obtained deer licenses for Davis.
One of those people, Roberta Anderson, was cited for providing deer
licenses to a nonresident and fined $182.
