DES MOINES, Iowa — A Pennsylvania man who operated a hunting guide service in southern Iowa has been convicted of carrying out illegal hunts for whitetail deer in 2008.

A jury in Des Moines on Thursday found Rodney Hughes of Mayfield, Penn., guilty of seven counts of the unlawful sale of deer taken in interstate commerce. Jurors also found him guilty of six counts of willfully submitting false information to state authorities.

Hughes had relatives and friends obtain hunting tags that were used for the deer the hunters killed. He reported the false tag information to the state of Iowa.
