May 2, 2013

From NCNewsPress.com

BEDFORD, Iowa  --  After a more than two-year long investigation, two Pennsylvania residents who were part owners of Whitetail Fantasies, a hunting guide business, have pleaded guilty to illegal deer hunting charges in Taylor County.
David E. Ricker, 48, of Harrisburg, Pa., pleaded guilty to one count of illegal taking of an antlered whitetail deer and one count of fraudulently obtaining a resident deer license.  Pursuant to an earlier plea agreement, Jeffrey A. Mealey, 47, of Dillsburg, Pa., pleaded guilty to an illegal possession of an antlered whitetail deer.
Through a jury trial, Ollie Odle Jr., of Bedford, was found guilty of two charges of aiding and abetting of illegal taking of antlered whitetail deer, based upon providing deer licenses/tags to out of state hunters.
The defendants were ordered to forfeit the antlers and pay more than $22,600 in fines and liquidated damages.  They are suspended from hunting or obtaining any licenses for one year.
