OH: Hunter pleads guilty to wildlife violations
May 24, 2010
Scioto County man pled guilty to four wildlife violations in Adams County
Court and was ordered to pay $23,572 in restitution, according to the
Division of Wildlife.
Johnny B. Clay, 37, of Minford, pled guilty to four charges including
taking a deer in a closed season, hunting without permission, no hunting
license, and no deer permit. Clay was also ordered to pay $1,500 in fines,
an additional $134 court costs, and to forfeit the deer as well as the bow
he used to kill it.
The typical trophy deer, scored according to Boone & Crockett guidelines,
netted an impressive 197 2/8, the largest typical whitetail harvested in
North America in 2009. Clay had 10 prior wildlife convictions for deer
violations, and has spent time in jail for several of those offenses.
