CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa
A Decorah man has been sentenced to one year in prison for allowing
illegally hunted deer to be taken from Iowa.
The U.S. attorney's office says 51-year-old Dale Hogenson was sentenced
Friday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids. He pleaded guilty in March to
one count of selling unlawfully taken wildlife.
The U.S. attorney's office says Hogenson sold illegally hunted deer and
allowed the deer to be taken to Virginia in 2004.
Prosecutors say he also sold guiding services to out-of-state hunters,
assisted the hunters in taking the unlawfully taken deer out of Iowa, and
accompanied two undercover officers on an illegal grizzly bear hunt in
Hogenson was also fined $10,000 fine and ordered to pay about $23,000
