WASHBURN, N.D. - A Georgia hunting guide and dog trainer has lost his hunting and trapping privileges for 12 years and has been ordered to pay nearly $9,000 for breaking state wildlife laws.

Ferris "Bo" Taylor, of Pavo, Ga., was sentenced Wednesday in McLean County on misdemeanor charges of guiding without a license, exceeding the waterfowl possession limit, illegal possession of hen pheasants and misrepresentation in applying for a North Dakota hunting license.

State game warden Ken Skuza and warden supervisor Daryl Kleyer said earlier that an October search of a Douglas-area farm owned by Taylor turned up 351 whole ducks in freezers and three hen pheasants. Authorities also said Taylor falsely claimed to be a North Dakota resident in applying for a license.

The hunting and trapping restrictions in Taylor's sentence will extend to other states, including his home state, authorities said.

He was ordered to pay $8,775 to state Game and Fish Department programs.

Judge Bruce Haskell also ordered the suspension of Taylor's dog training privileges in North Dakota for 12 years, and put him on unsupervised probation.
