OR - Shilo Inn owner settles hunting charges, pays $3,000

The Associated Press

ENTERPRISE, Ore. (AP) Shilo Inn owner Mark Hemstreet has settled illegal hunting charges by paying the state of Oregon $3,000, and prosecutors dropped charges filed against his wife, Shannon, as well.

Hemstreet, family members and friends had been accused of a variety of violations after State Police investigated the taking of four elk and a bear during the 2004 hunting season. Later a judge dismissed some charges.
Ousley said Hemstreet's son, Brian, 34, pleaded guilty in the case, and Hemstreet said their relationship is frayed. He said he's forgiven his son and thinks he was treated harshly, but Brian "betrayed" him by inviting guests to the ranch without getting permission and illegally killing a black bear. Hemstreet said his son bought a bear tag but forgot to pick it up.
