Outfitter, hunters charged in poaching case

MADISON - The investigation started in 2001 with a complaint to a state conservation warden about a man leading hunters from Florida on deer and turkey hunts in Richland County.

It culminated Wednesday when state and federal prosecutors filed 186 charges against 46 people, which includes 45 hunters from 11 states and a Blue River hunting guide, whom the hunters allegedly paid to lead them on illegal hunts in Richland and Iowa counties.

Officers also seized 30 mounted trophy deer, numerous rifles and compound bows, the Department of Natural Resources said in a news release.
