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..
