Salisbury man banned from hunting worldwide

Postby Oakarver » Thu Sep 15, 2011 6:40 pm

A Salisbury resident has been banned from hunting anywhere in the world for two years as part of an agreement with federal authorities in Kentucky on charges that he illegally hunted in and took wildlife from that state.

Rodney L. Poteat agreed to the ban in U.S. District Court in Kentucky last week, according to a Department of Justice press release. Reached at his Perryman Drive home Wednesday evening, Poteat declined to comment.

He also agreed to pay the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources $5,300 in restitution, and $50 in special penalty assessments. The restitution is to compensate the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources for the fees Poteat would have paid for hunting in Kentucky between 2002 and 2011, the press release said.

Poteat was charged July 27 and sentenced Sept. 7. He received unsupervised probation. The hunting ban was a condition of that sentence, Justice Department statement said.

According to federal authorities, on Nov. 27, 2010, Poteat transported a 14-point white-tailed deer from Hart County, Ky. to his home in Salisbury. Poteat was required to purchase a non-resident hunting license and deer permit prior to hunting in Kentucky. He also was required to report the harvest of any deer taken in Kentucky, and to make a report before transporting the deer outside of Kentucky.

Poteat also pleaded guilty to knowingly transporting a bobcat from Hart County, Ky. to Salisbury in November 2010 without purchasing a non-resident hunting license. Poteat also failed to report the harvest of a bobcat taken within Kentucky, authorities said.

According to the press release, Poteat used to live in Hart County, Ky.

I guess that will ruin his Bulgarian hunt that he had planned. World ban sounds impressive, but for most poachers it means little. $ talks louder than taking his license away.

So I see that it says he is banned from hunting world wide for 2 years but doesnt say anything about his penalties being longer in the state of Kentucky or anywhere else in the United States. Does this mean after 2 years he is allowed to go back to hunting again?? Guess it doesnt really matter cause hes not a hunter he is a poacher anyway. I wish the penalty was for much longer in the states that he was charged with these crimes I believe that would affect him more than some 2 year world wide ban.

doesn't matter..... He'll still keep on poaching no matter what.

Never understood that. Poachers are banned from purchasing a hunting license if they are caught, but they never used one in the first place....
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.
