I read in the Cloumbus dispatch about a 220 class deer being killed the day after gun season with a bow, and thought wow thats strange. Turns out to be very strange. I got the local newspaper yesterday the guy was charged and found guilty of not telling the truth. From The Circleviile Herald Local man fined $250.00 A Circleville man pleaded guilty to providing false information to a check station for checking in a hunting preserve buck as a wild deer during the 2008 archery season. The hunter was given the maximun sentence for a fourth degree misdemeanor: $250 fine plus court costs,30 days jail suspended, two years probation with no related wildlife violation,three years hunting license revocation, and an apology letter to sportsmen. Rob McCarley reported to a deer check station that he killed the buck, which green scored 220 on Monday Dec.8, with a long bow on private propety in Franklin county. State wildlife officers were later informed that the deer was taken legally on a pay-to-hunt preserve in notheast Ohio and that he paid $12,500 for the deer and shot it with a rifle. McCarley had previously killed seven deer that would qualify for The Buckeye Big Buck Club, two of which were over 185 inches. The DOW discovered that one of these deer, a 191 class deer, was also killed on a shooting preserve in 2006 and then falsely checked as a fair chase, wild deer killed with a bow in Franklin county. He admitted to this violation and a s a part of the plea agreement the DOW will not pursue charges on any other deer or make recommendations to other agencies to pursue charges provided: He gives a full disclosure statement on all deer killed on a shooting preserve and falsely checked in as fair chase,wild deer. Permanent metal tags,if available,from falsified deer are returned to the DOW.His attorney advised the DOW that after being interviewed by officers, McCarley burned all of his deer mounts.
