Jeff Foiles Indicted Under Lacey Act

A federal grand jury in Springfield, Ill., has moved to indict pro-waterfowler Jeff Foiles under the Lacey Act.

Here's the gist of it, according to a press release:

The indictment alleges that from 2003 to 2007, Foiles conspired with others to knowingly transport and sell ducks and geese that had been hunted and killed in violation of federal laws protecting migratory birds. In particular, Foiles is alleged to have sold guided waterfowl hunts at the Fallin' Skies Strait Meat Duck Club in Pike County, Ill., for the purpose of illegally hunting and killing ducks and geese in excess of hunters' individual daily bag limits. Foiles and his associates are also alleged to have falsified hunting records at the club in order to conceal the excesses, and to have filmed the illegal hunts for inclusion in commercial hunting videos.

The Outdoor Wire has the full press release.

We have so many geese that our local lake has to be closed from time to time to stop the spread of E - coli, we need to change the antiquated laws

Went down in Dec 08 for a hunt.(From Ontario) I question a bird that was shot, he was only concerned about how good of a shot it was. Bird was already down. Nothing left of the bird. He end up taking the birds we shot so he could get a good photo for promos. Nice hay

Love his calls but have never been a fan of his attitude. He has never shown much respect for what he shoots.

It gives new meaning to "Strait Meat" duck club when you're going to jail.
