SD- Man pleads guilty to illegal hunting

October 8, 2007 - Associated Press

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) The owner of a big-game and pheasant-hunting business near Akaska has admitted booking illegal deer hunts in central South Dakota and faces up to 5 years in prison.

Fifty-three-year-old Brad Schilling of Selby pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act and is scheduled for sentencing in January.

Schilling's business goes by the names of Schilling Outdoor Adventures and Antler Ridge Lodge.

According to court documents, he booked big game and deer hunts for more than $350 each, then worked with others to arrange the illegal shooting of deer by out-of-state residents.

Schilling's sons, Chad Schilling and Jestin Schilling, were also charged in the eight-count indictment.
