SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - Two Wisconsin men have to pay fines totaling more than $20,000 for using hunting licenses transferred to them illegally and killing three buck mule deer.

The Sheridan Press reports (http://bit.ly/1IjnSXM ) that Bob Schneeberger and James Kafka were each ticketed by Wyoming Game and Fish for knowingly taking antlered/horned trophy game with licenses illegally transferred to them.

Schneeberger must pay $5,040 in fines and fees for the one deer he killed. In addition, he must pay $2,000 in restitution for the animal. Kafka will pay $10,080 in fines and fees, plus $4,000 in restitution. Both men also lose their hunting privileges for three years.

Chuck and Debra Belus, the ranch owners who transferred the licenses to the Wisconsin men, pleaded guilty in Sheridan County Circuit Court to illegal transfers.
