Iowa man sentenced for illegal hunting

Cedar Rapids, Iowa (AP) – A Decorah man has been sentenced to
one year in prison for allowing illegally hunted deer to be taken
from Iowa.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 51-year-old Dale Hogenson was
sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids. He pleaded
guilty in March to one count of selling unlawfully taken
wildlife.

The U.S. attorney’s office says Hogenson sold illegally hunted
deer and allowed the deer to be taken to Virginia in 2004.

Prosecutors say he also sold guiding services to out-of-state
hunters, assisted the hunters in taking the unlawfully taken deer
out of Iowa, and accompanied two undercover officers on an illegal
grizzly bear hunt in Alaska.

Hogenson was also fined $10,000 fine and ordered to pay about
$23,000 restitution.
