TV hunter from Tennessee sentenced for poaching deer in Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A Tennessee hunter featured in cable television hunting shows has been sentenced for poaching a deer in Kansas in 2007.

William “Spook” Spann, from Dickson, Tenn., was sentenced Thursday under a plea agreement to pay a $10,000 fine, pay $10,000 in restitution and three years of federal supervised release.

Spann also lost his U.S. hunting privileges for six months, with another six months in Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/ZP9XCS ) Spann also was ordered to forfeit the antlers from the buck he killed while bow hunting in Stafford County.

Federal prosecutors say Spann, who is featured on several cable television shows and hunting videos, killed the white-tail deer on land owned by another person. His permit allowed him to hunt only on land that he owned or leased.
