Hunters ticketed for illegally hunting deer

TIPTON — A little as a fourth of an inch was the difference between thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential total fines faced by 16 hunters in Mitchell County.

Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism officers ticketed the hunters late last week for using radios and pickup trucks to illegally take four deer. The hunters were not named Thursday, but Mitchell County Attorney Mark Noah said they’re from the Tipton and Hunter communities.

He added that one ticket was issued in Osborne County.

The hunters in Mitchell County were given notices to appear Jan. 10 in Mitchell County District Court in Beloit, he said, where they could be fined a minimum of $500 for each count.

The antlers of one or all of the deer missed trophy status by as close as one-fourth of an inch, Noah said.
