DENVER - A Missouri-based hunting guide and some of his clients face felony charges for alleged poaching and illegal killing of wildlife, officials said Monday.

Gregory Jaegers of Renegade Guide Service in Saint Genevieve, Mo., faces eight felony and 14 misdemeanor counts, according to the Division of Wildlife. The charges include illegal sale of wildlife, which is essentially poaching, and felony willful destruction of wildlife, according to DOW spokesman Randy Hampton.

Hunters from Colorado, Missouri, Louisiana, and Texas are suspected of violations, which follows a three year investigation. Four of Jaegers' clients have pleaded guilty and paid fines and penalties of more than $5,000.

Two more people from Missouri have already been indicted and more charges were expected as the investigation continued.

"The further we examined the activities of these individuals, the larger the case became," said Dan Miller, lead investigator.
