Kan. hunting guide pleads to criminal hunting

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A hunting guide has pleaded no contest to criminal hunting charges, admitting that he took hunters and a television crew onto property he didn’t have permission to hunt.

Thirty-year-old Adam Gilkey of McPherson, who operates High Caliber Outdoors, was fined $250 on Wednesday for an incident that occurred last December near Hutchinson.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/15A3OKL ) that Gilkey was leading a group of eight hunters, including two men who host the show “American Birdhunter,” which airs on the Outdoor Channel.

The group was hunting a field when the land owner called state wildlife officials to say he hadn’t given them permission to be on his land.

Charges against the other seven were dismissed. Prosecutors say they were relying on Gilkey to take them to a legal area to hunt.
