DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two South Carolina men were jailed Saturday after Iowa authorities say they were involved in numerous illegal hunting activities in the state.

Thirty-eight-year-old Mike Sillanpaa, of Summerville, and 38-year-old David Larry Gordon of North Charleston were arrested after officers with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources searched a Des Moines motel, a local residence and a vehicle this morning.

Officers seized two freshly killed deer, two shotguns, a high-powered rifle and two crossbows.

Mounted deer located in South Carolina have been returned to Iowa as part of the investigation.
