ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – The license of an Alaska hunting guide has been permanently revoked as part of a plea agreement.

Alaska State Troopers say 45-year-old Michael Vanning of Verdale, Wash., pleaded guilty last week to guide offenses near Fort Yukon and Kotzebue (KAHTZ’-eh-bew).

The offenses include wanton waste, failure to salvage game and failure to supervise clients and assistant guides.

Vanning was fined $90,000, with $80,000 suspended, and banned from hunting for 12 years.

The sentence is Vanning’s third since 1998. He forfeited an airplane in a previous case.
