WICHITA, Kan. (November 2, 2011)--Charges have been dropped against two Texas hunters in the investigation of a Kansas camp where hunters paid thousands of dollars to kill deer illegally.

At the government's request, U.S. District Judges Eric Melgren and Monti Belot dismissed the misdemeanor charges in separate cases against James Donnan and Michael Scarber, both of Center.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said the dismissal stems from "technical issues" with the type of equipment allegedly used in the hunt.

Twelve hunters from Texas and Louisiana were charged in August with poaching-related misdemeanors connected to Camp Lone Star near Coldwater, Kan.

Five pleaded guilty and seven pleaded not guilty.

Two other Texas hunters were indicted in July on felony charges.

The camp's owner and his brother were sentenced in June to prison terms.

They knew it was illegal as well. Too bad they cannot lose their rights here.



To be determined

What about all these "hunters" that paid them. Did they think it was ok to shoot after dark or to just leave dead deer in the field? I understand maybe not knowing the unit number or bow/rifle season, sometimes you just go with what the guide says. But those are almost universal laws.

Sorry. Read the post on my phone, and missed the names being different than the names in the articles. My mistake.
