Muscatine man faces multiple charges, fines for illegal hunting

MUSCATINE (KWWL)-- A Muscatine man faces 75 charges and over $6,000 dollars in fines after being cited with numerous waterfowl hunting violations on Tuesday.

Tyler A. Wilson, age 19, of Muscatine was charged following a lengthy investigation by conservation officers from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Wilson is charged with five counts each of hunting without a valid hunting license, hunting without  the wildlife habitat fee, hunting ducks without the state migratory bird fee, and hunting ducks without a federal duck stamp.

The DNR credits a concerned citizen who contacted the TIP (Turn In Poachers) hotline and provided information which led to the investigation and the current charges being filed against Wilson.  Wilson is facing a court date in Muscatine County on Dec. 15, for the firearms charge.  A second court date is set in Louisa County on Dec. 17, for the waterfowl hunting violations.
