ABERDEEN: Arranging illegal hunting trips brings prison time

A Mina man who pleaded guilty to arranging illegal hunting trips has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison.

Brent Barton, majority owner of a big game, turkey and pheasant hunting outfitting business known as South Dakota Adventures, previously admitted to conspiracy to violate state, tribal and federal wildlife regulations by hunting deer, pheasants, turkeys and grouse without proper licenses and transferring big game licenses during outfitted hunts.

In addition to 37 months in prison, Barton must make $12,582 in restitution, pay a $100 special assessment and spend three years on supervised release.

Barton's wife, Dawn Barton, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor aiding and abetting several out-of-state hunters in unlawfully taking 48 pheasants from the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.
