Did They Finally Catch Up To Ellwood's Cousin?

Convicted poacher pays restitution, receives worldwide hunting ban in Kentucky case

 
A North Carolina man agreed to pay the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources more than $5,300 in restitution and fees after pleading guilty to federal charges of illegally killing and transporting wildlife from Kentucky.
   
U.S. Magistrate Judge E. Robert Goebel also banned 44-year-old Rodney L. Poteat of Salisbury, N.C., from hunting anywhere in the world for two years as a condition of unsupervised probation, according to David J. Hale, United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky.  Poteat is a former resident of Hart County, Kentucky.
Poteat was charged in a two-count information on July 27. Goebel sentenced Poteat Sept. 7 in U.S. District Court at Bowling Green. The restitution is to compensate Kentucky Fish and Wildlife for the fees Poteat would have paid for hunting in Kentucky for several years.
According to court records, Poteat transported a 14-point white-tailed deer from Hart County to his North Carolina home on November 27, 2010. Poteat was required to purchase a non-resident hunting license and deer permit prior to hunting in Kentucky. He also was required to report the harvest of any deer taken in Kentucky, and to make a report before transporting the deer outside of Kentucky.
The case caught the attention of Kentucky Fish and Wildlife special investigations officers when hunters from the Hart County area reported that Poteat claimed one of his mounted deer was taken in North Carolina. However, the other hunters had trail camera photos taken in Hart County of a live deer with a distinctive antler configuration identical to Poteatís deer mount.
Kentucky officers notified U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service special agents of the investigation. Federal agents teamed with North Carolina officers for a visit to Poteatís home.
Confronted with the photo evidence, Poteat admitted to hunting in Kentucky since 1999 without purchasing the required licenses. He surrendered four deer head mounts, two turkey mounts and a bobcat mount to investigators.
Poteat also plead guilty to knowingly transporting a bobcat from Kentucky to his North Carolina home without purchasing a non-resident hunting license prior to hunting in Kentucky. He also failed to report the harvest of a bobcat taken within Kentucky.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Randy Ream prosecuted the case. Investigators with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service participated in the case.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

If they had been related to Ellwood - they would have just eaten the evidence!!!  Nothing but little cotton tails tumbling in the autumn breeze.   :twisted:    ....don't need no stinkin' mounts!

Yes, but did he use a flashlight?
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

It's a condition of his probation.  If they get a report of any kind, or they check up on him, and find out that he did hunt somewhere, he's in violation of his probation and will go to jail.  O0

How they enforce a worldwide ban in Ellwoods cousins case is simple. Tell him the world falls off into oblivion 50 feet from the front porch. He'll believe it. :-P :-P :twisted: :twisted: :roll: :roll: :D ;D
