Man sentenced for hunting violations

Worland, Wy – A Worland man has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and fined $10,200 for various hunting violations.In addition, Keith Searle lost his hunting privileges, must
forfeit all deer antlers in his possession and must pay $8,000 in
restitution.
He also was placed on four years of supervised probation and may
not possess any hunting gear.
The charges against Searle included taking an animal without a
license, accessory to taking a deer without a license and
purchasing a license while under suspension.
State game authorities say Searle committed the offenses while
his hunting privileges were suspended from an earlier hunting
violation.
Searle's attorney contended that he hunted the deer to provide
meat for his family.
