IA: Repeat offender faces hunting violations

Muscatine man faces hunting violations

By Charlotte Eby of the Muscatine Journal Capital Bureau

DES MOINES - A Muscatine man faces 75 counts after being cited for allegedly violating waterfowl hunting laws, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday.

Tyler A. Wilson, 19, was charged after what DNR officials called a lengthy investigation by conservation officers acting on a tip from a state hotline to report poaching.

If convicted of the charges, Wilson could face more than $6,000 in fines, DNR officials said.

The alleged violations include 13 counts of hunting without a valid hunting license while under suspension.

Some of the other charges include five counts each of hunting without a valid hunting license, hunting without having the wildlife habitat stamp, hunting ducks without the state migratory bird stamp, and hunting ducks without a federal duck stamp.

DNR officials allege the violations occurred in Louisa County in September, October and November.

Wilson also has been charged with having a loaded shotgun in a motor vehicle on a public highway in Muscatine County, DNR officials.

Wilson had his hunting privileges suspended in September for a year after being convicted of four hunting violations committed in Louisa County in 2007 and 2008, DNR officials said.

A telephone number for Wilson could not immediately be located to contact him for comment.
