2 men indicted over illegal guided deer hunts in Kansas
WICHITA - A federal grand jury in Wichita has returned a 23-count
indictment charging two brothers from Martinsville, Texas, with illegally
selling guided deer hunts in southern Kansas.
The Justice Department said today that James Bobby Butler Jr., 41, and
Marlin Jackson Butler, 35, were charged with violating the Lacey Act, a
federal law that prohibits the interstate transportation of animals taken
The Butlers are charged with operating a guide service and hunting camp
in Comanche County where hunters exceeded annual bag limits, hunted deer
without permits, killed deer using illegal equipment and hunted using
prohibited methods such as spotlighting.
The indictment said the hunters paid $2,500 to $3,500 to hunt with
archery equipment and about $5,000 to hunt with rifles.
