A Moberly man pleaded guilty last December to multiple wildlife violations after an Illinois Conservation Police investigation into Wired Arrow Outdoors, a group that produces hunting videos.

Joseph M. Cater, who had been part of the Wired Arrow pro-staff, was given a
$750 fine and ordered to pay $194 in court costs along with 12 months supervision. Cater also had to forfeit his bow and shoulder mount.

After viewing videos of hunts, Illinois conservation police determined that hunting and filming were conducted on properties in the Chicago region without permission from landowners, which made hunting permits invalid.

Conservation police charged 134 wildlife violations, including the illegal taking of 18 deer, against nine hunters from four states with Wired Arrow, according to a press release. In an email, Young said five people so far have been given fines ranging from $500 to $1,200.
