Thomas Shankster, 60, faces eight counts of hunting violations while acting as a big game guide in Game Management Unit 19, which encompasses McGrath, Alaska State Troopers said.

An investigation into Shankster and his guide business, Alaska Trophy Hunts, began in the fall of 2014.

Shankster failed to report two known violations by assistant guides.

Shankster also falsified a hunt record and claimed meat had been harvested when it had not been, troopers said.
