Tennessee Men Lose Big For Illegally Hunting Turkeys
Kentucky Department Fish Wildlife
Kentucky --(Ammoland.com)- Two Tennessee men were fined and lost even
more in equipment forfeitures after pleading guilty in Ballard District
Court to hunting turkeys over bait they placed.
Arthur James Coleman III, 45, and Stephen Bridges, 47, both of Brentwood,
Tennessee, were found hunting wild turkeys over bait at Huntland Farms, a
private tract bordering the Ballard Wildlife Management Area.
Fish and Wildlife officers Tony Dunker, Kyle Webb, and Sgt. Denny Broyles
observed the men place corn on three areas of the farm and then found them
hunting over it on the opening morning of the spring turkey season.
District Judge Keith Myers fined each $343.00 and ordered forfeiture of
seized equipment - a tractor with seed spreader, an electric utility
vehicle, and a twelve gauge shotgun..
