BEND, OR — Alan Roy Aronson, 43, has been sentenced after pleading guilty to multiple misdemeanor and felony charges related to illegal guiding and hunting activities in Central Oregon.

Between 2010 and 2012, hunters accompanying Aronson killed dozens of elk, including several large trophy elk that were shot and killed by persons without valid tags, and at least 9 buffalo from a neighboring ranch without the ranch owner’s consent. Investigators also learned that Aronson was not a registered hunting guide in the state while all of these activities were taking place.

Aronson was sentenced to 180 days in jail, 222 months probation, over $152,000 in fines, fees and restitution, as well as a 34-year hunting license suspension.

In total, 23 people, including Aronson’s wife, have been charged for more than 200 counts/charges filed in Wheeler County and 15 additional charges were filed in Deschutes County. Ten of those individuals pled guilty or no contest; and cases are pending adjudication for 13 other people.
