Investigation Reveals Multiple Violations; Guide Gets Huge Fine


Brandon R. Greeley

A hunting guide has been hit with multiple fines and restitution penalties after pleading guilty following a lengthy investigation by a state wildlife agency.


Brandon R. Greeley, 28, a licensed bear guide in Tofte, Minn., was found with more than 150 traps, six black bear hides, multiple deer quarters and other wildlife taken illegally. Officials said he also convinced four of his clients to buy tags for the wrong zone when they weren’t drawn for the zone he guides in.

“Minnesotans can be proud of these officers whose hard work, long nights, and nonstop investigative efforts have paid off,” said Colonel Ken Soring, Minnesota DNR Enforcement Division director. “Poachers steal from honest hunters, anglers, and all of us who responsibly enjoy our state’s natural riches.”

The majority of Greeley’s crimes with clients were for bear violations, some dating to 2007. He was fined nearly $4,000 and his hunting privileges were revoked for three years.
