Three out-of-state men charged with illegal deer hunting

Published October 3, 2005


Three out-of-state men face thousands of dollars in fines and suspension of their hunting privileges for unlawfully killing deer in Iowa last year, state Department of Natural Resources officials said.

The agency said a 10-month investigation led to charges against the New Jersey and Pennsylvania residents.

The DNR said the men hunted in Monroe County in southern Iowa.

Ronald A Hayek, 36, of Towaco, N.J., was charged with seven counts of making a false claim to obtain resident Iowa licenses, unlawfully taking a deer and attempting to take a deer by unlawful means. The agency said he also faces a charge of attempting to take a turkey by unlawful means.

Hayek, who was fined $1,488, faces a three-year suspension of his hunting privileges.

Daniel S. Hosaflook, 38, of Verona, Pa., and Donald Hosaflook, 35, of Delmont, Pa., were each charged with unlawfully taking a deer. They were each fined $162, and each face one-year suspensions.

The DNR said Hayek allegedly used a Bettendorf address to purchase resident hunting licenses and deer and turkey tags. He allegedly killed at least one antlered deer with an illegal license.

Daniel and Donald Hosaflooks were accused of killing antlered deer on a nonresident antlerless only license.

Conservation officials in New Jersey and Pennsylvania assisted in the investigation, the DNR said.

If convicted, each man also faces a minimum $4,000 civil fine.
