A Timber Lake man has been sentenced for illegally killing hawks to protect pheasants for hunting.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson said 60-year-old Barry Hutchinson was put on unsupervised probation for a year, fined $1,500 and ordered to pay $1,500 in restitution.

Authorities said that between May 2006 and May 2008, Hutchinson shot and killed hawks around a pheasant hunting preserve in Dewey County. Hutchinson pleaded guilty this week to a charge of unlawfully taking migratory birds.
