Florida man gets prison for illegal 2008 hunt


BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ A Florida man has been ordered to spend 18
months in a federal prison for guiding a deer hunt in southeastern
Idaho without a license and illegally shipping deer meat across
state lines.
Jeffrey Dickman was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to
a misdemeanor for his role in selling and providing unlicensed
outfitting services to a group of Nevada hunters in 2008.
Dickman, of Islamorada, Fla., admitted to guiding a hunt in
which a client bagged a mule deer and helping the hunter ship the
meat and antlers back to Nevada.
His role in shipping the meat triggered the federal Lacey Act,
which makes it a crime for a person to knowingly transport game
killed illegally.
He also faces a $1,200 fine and 60 hours of community service.
