Washington County Man Appeals Illegal Deer Hunting Fine
Jens Brynteson of Warthen has appealed a $70,000 fine by the Department
of Natural Resources.
The fine came after the DNR shut down an illegal penned deer hunting
operation run by Brynteson.
John Bowers, the assistant chief of game management for Georgia's
Wildlife Resources Division, was part of an 18 month investigation by the
DNR that resulted in the fine.
"Mr. Brynteson, who had a deer-farming license for one piece of property,
was taking those species..unlawfully transporting them down to another
property where there was a shooting pen established," said Bowers.
The appeal holds up efforts by the DNR to confiscate Brynteson's 1,000
deer. It also postpones payment of the fine.
No date has been set for an appeals hearing.
