Court sentences GF man on hunting charge

A Grand Forks man has paid $225 in court costs for unlawfully taking a big game animal on the last day of North Dakota’s 2007-08 archery deer season, court records show. Ian Noack also was sentenced to 30 days in the Traill County Jail, to be served concurrently with his sentence for two other hunting violations that occurred during the opening weekend of North Dakota’s 2006 firearms deer season.

Noack will report to jail Oct. 24

The most recent sentence resulted from an incident that occurred Jan. 6, when Gary Rankin, district game warden for the state Game and Fish Department in Larimore, N.D., cited Noack for shooting two deer with a bow and putting someone else’s tag on one of the deer.

Noack changed his plea to guilty on the charge last week, court records show.

In June, Noack was sentenced in Traill County for hunting while his privileges were suspended, illegally posting lands to prohibit hunting and driving under suspension. Court records show the incidents occurred Nov. 10-11, 2006.

Noack was ordered to pay more than $1,000 in fines and court costs for the 2006 violations and sentenced to 60 days in jail, with 30 days suspended, on the hunting charges. He also lost his hunting privileges for two years.

Unlawful taking of a big game animal is a Class A misdemeanor.
