Four Louisiana men convicted of deer poaching in Iowa

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Four Louisiana men have been found guilty of poaching deer in southwest Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources said the investigation began with a call in November 2011 to Kansas wildlife officials about the men's hunting activities in that state, the Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil reported (http://bit.ly/12jV4VO ) Saturday.

Kansas officials' investigation led them to call Iowa conservation officials about possible illegal hunting in Iowa. About the same time, a person called the Iowa Natural Resources Department to report illegal deer hunting in southwest Iowa.

Michael Fralick, of Ponchatoula, La., was convicted of 32 counts of deer hunting violations in four southwest Iowa counties. He was ordered to pay nearly $29,000 in fines, court costs and damages and forfeit two rifles. He also received a five-year license suspension.

James Moore, also of Ponchatoula, pleaded guilty to 11 counts and was ordered to pay more than $12,000. He is under a five-year license suspension.

Stanley Russel, of Roseland La., and William "Heath" Chambliss, of Kentwood, La., were convicted of several counts and ordered to pay more than $1,400 each. Both received a two-year license suspension.

"These men came to Iowa specifically to road-hunt trophy bucks," Deb Howe, state conservation officer for the Department of Natural Resources, said in a release. "They did not have any licenses or tags to hunt in Iowa during the time they were here."

The four men also have pleaded guilty to various wildlife crimes in Kansas.
