Subscribers who have hunts booked with Alaska guide James M. Fejes (not to be confused with his brother, Sam Fejes) should be aware that the man is facing trial on some very serious wildlife-related charges. Seems Fejes is alleged to have helped two hunters shoot caribou in violation of Alaska's same-day airborne hunting law and then help ship the trophies home, triggering violations of the Lacey Act. Importantly, the Lacey Act charges against Fejes and others involved in the case are not misdemeanors, but felonies. The felony charges each carry penalties of up to five years in prison and fines of up to $250,000. The indictment also includes forfeiture allegations concerning one of the caribou trophies, the rifle and scope used by one of the hunters to take his caribou and three aircraft. Trial is set for February 16, 1999. We'll let you know what happens.
