Feds Ban Carolina Man From Hunting Anywhere on Planet Earth

SALISBURY, N.C. (The Blaze/AP)– A North Carolina man has been banned from hunting anywhere in the world for two years as part of an agreement with federal authorities on charges that he illegally killed wildlife in Kentucky.

The Salisbury Post reported Thursday that Rodney Poteat agreed to the deal in Kentucky last week. The Salisbury man declined comment.

Federal prosecutors said Poteat last November carried a 14-point white-tailed deer from Hart County, Ky., to his home without reporting the kill. He also pleaded guilty to transporting a dead bobcat without a non-resident hunting license.

He agreed to pay the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources $5,300 in restitution for fees he would have paid for hunting in the state between 2002 and 2011.
