Tennessee man facing hunting-related charges in North Dakota
CROSBY, N.D. (AP) — A Tennessee man is accused of illegally acting as a hunting guide in North Dakota for several years.
Twenty-six-year-old Randal Layman Jr., of Fayetteville, Tennessee, is facing seven felony counts of exploiting wildlife. Each count carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison.
Investigators from the Divide County Sheriff’s Office and the North Dakota Game and Fish Department allege Layman has been charging clients $1,000 for guided hunts since at least 2014, even though he’s not a licensed guide.
Layman also is accused of breaking hunting laws.
Court documents indicate he is representing himself in court. A telephone listing for him couldn’t be found. He could enter pleas at a Nov. 9 hearing.
