This happened 3 years ago, BTW. So those guys were back hunting this year (they only lost privileges for a year).

And, yes, all that hunting equipment was confiscated. So that turned out to be one expensive turkey hunt. From what I can see in the picture, it was two Benelli SBE3s... expensive camera/mic/tripod...another shotgun... couple of trail cameras... couple blinds... AvianX decoy (well, they have the bag - I assume one of the $100 decoys are in it) ... the feeder. That's probably close to $5,000, not counting other odds-and-ends there on the ground in the picture -- plus the actual fines.

Three Ohio men plead guilty in Carter County to charges stemming from turkey baiting violations in the 2018 Kentucky Spring turkey season.

On the opening day of the 2018 Kentucky Spring turkey season, Kentucky Conservation Officer Sergeant Glenn Kitchen and Conservation Officer Brad Stafford made contact with three subjects they located hunting on two separate baited locations on the same farm in Carter County. Jordan Marburger, age 24, of West Chester Ohio, was hunting over an automatic feeder of corn and Billy Henry, age 57 and Lane Henry, age 22, both of Sabina Ohio, were hunting over a bait pile of corn. All three were charged for Illegal take / pursue of any deer / wild turkey for the illegal activity of hunting wild turkey over bait / baited area.

In addition to the illegal hunting activities, Lane Henry was also charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia that was located in the blind he was hunting from.

On 25 June 2018, Jordan Marburger pled guilty to the charge of illegal take / pursue of wild turkey. He was fined $1000.00, loss of 1 years hunting privileges and loss of hunting gear being used that day.

Billy Henry pled guilty to illegal take / pursue of wild turkey. He was fined $400.00, loss of hunting privileges for 1 year and loss of hunting gear used that day.

Lane Henry pled guilty to illegal take / pursue of wild turkey. He was fined $750.00, loss of hunting privileges for 1 year and loss of hunting gear used that day. In addition, he also pled guilty to possession of marijuana.
