Byron Delong, 24, will pay nearly $8,000 in fines and costs after pleading guilty to multiple counts of illegal guide activities and taking elk.

Delong pleaded guilty Monday in Martin District Court to guiding elk hunters without a commercial guide’s license, assisting an elk hunter to hunt over bait, and assisting an elk hunter with an At-Large Elk Permit to hunt in a Limited Entry Area.

The court also stripped Delong of hunting privileges for three years and probated his 60-day jail sentence.
