2 charged for trespassing while hunting

THE DES MOINES REGISTER

Two Waterloo men have been charged for trespassing and other violations stemming from a December hunting incident.

Kenneth Dean VanDeest, 40, and Timothy Albert Aitchison, 31, are both charged with trespassing while deer hunting and VanDeest is also charged for discharging a shotgun/shooting a slug over a public highway right of way, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

A local farmer reported the two men were hunting in Fayette County on Dec. 18, 2008 when VanDeest allegedly shot a deer on a county road, crippling the animal before it ran to a field owned by the farmer, according to the DNR. The men then entered the farmerís property without permission and Aitchison allegedly killed the crippled deer with a handgun.

The farmer confronted the two men, took down the license plate number and reported it to the DNR.

All charges are simple misdemeanors with a maximum fine of $825 or 30 days in a county jail or a combination of a fine and jail time.

The two could also face a fine for illegally taking a deer, set at $1,500 per deer.
